So … uh, the portion of yesterday that should have been spent on a blog post was instead spent working with our porch crew on a highly critical matter. Naturally the most important function of this screened porch we’ve been building is the accommodation of knitting, and from early in the planning process — such as it was — I really wanted these hanging chairs that my friends at Earthen Studio have in their space. (Remember this?) They look fantastic, obvs, but more importantly, they are impossibly comfortable — the perfect place to curl up and knit for hours on end. However, they were bought at a salvage/overstock place here in Nashville, where you never know what you will or won’t find. I’ve been keeping an eye on the situation, but all they’ve had lately was a hulking double-wide version and a bunch of comparable chairs that don’t really compare. Then by some miracle — or maybe I just hadn’t been looking under the right musty pile of stuff — they reappeared a couple of weeks ago and I jumped on them. And then I lamented every day they lay on the garage floor, the porch still not ready. But yesterday was finally the day to get them hung just exactly right. I felt sure you’d all understand! ;)
p.s. If you’re in Nashville and wondering about knit night at Craft South tonight, it’s apparently not happening this month, but hopefully I’ll see you there in June!
