Not much knitting went on today - the first sleeve of the Mexican Wave sweater got finished and the second one started, and late last night I finished a sock. Most of today was spent cleaning, tidying and generally removing the swathes of assorted dross (and several kilos of assorted yarn) I seem to have assembled in the dining room over the last couple of months since I paid attention to it. The tipping point was the arrival of these:
ex-library filing cabinets. They look as if they ought to be in a display at Bletchley Park containing vital code-cracking information, but in fact they came with an archive (unrelated to defence) we acquired for microfilming at work, and apparently the organisation didn't want them back once they'd been filmed so they were offered to staff. I think the manufacturer's mark on each drawer is particularly fine
and will use them for storing bits of embroidery kit, tools etc. Each drawer is 20cm wide by about 40 cm deep by 15cm high, so there's quite a lot of space there... But this whole plan does centre on being able to get them into the back bedroom... so that's tomorrow's job...
(You can see by the first photo that Tilda likes the cabinets just about as much as she liked the scarf yesterday. She's difficult to please. She likes Whiskas, Greek yoghurt, sleeping on people's feet at night when it's really, really hot and sitting on knitting patterns. Anything else is beneath notice.)
