A Mish~Mash of Knitting Needle Organization and Basement Framing!

It's gorgeous outside today! Sunny and about 17 degrees and Paul and I are planning to run some errands before the big storm tomorrow. 7-10 inches of snow predicted. I'll have lots of time to knit and scrap!
Speaking of, I bought some knitting needle organizers. I was looking through a knitting magazine and saw these and thought-now that's what I need!!
So, a before and some after pics...
There's some shorter needles hidden inside. What a mess to search through. 
My double points.
Ahh, that's better. The thing is, it didn't come with ALL the different sizes so I added some with a purple marker. 
And my circulars!
So, moving right along. I did finish a gift I started for Wendy in December! Insert shocked smiley face! But I'm a slow knitter and who cares right? It's the thought that counts.

The basement framing is coming right along. We'll have the electrician and plumber down there soon, hopefully next week some time.
There will be a wall starting from the bottom of the stairs and going across and this room will be our exercise room with a closet on the right.

Next to the closet (which will be inside the workout room so you won't see it from here) is a little hallway going to the utility room to the right and then further back will be a half bath with a shower, sink and toilet. 

A full view of the utility room with the bath in the back. Along this 8' wall will be a bar area with a sink and refrigerator.

The main part of the basement. There will be a tv in the corner. 
To the right of the main area and right of the stairs will be (we're hoping) a pool table. In the back is storage and Paul's work room. 

So, I think I've bored you enough. I'll try and post more often and not so much content LOL.

As always,


  1. 17 degrees???? OMG! LOL! Well I am sending you some warm California sun your way. I wish you could of been here yesterday. Sunny, warm and just beautiful. So glad you got your knitting gear all ready to create some fun things. Oh and your basement is coming along nicely. I can't wait to see how it looks when it is all done. I know you will be so happy. Stay warm Val! :)

    1. Yes, Kelly. I'm staying warm. You do know I'm a California girl right? I miss it terribly. Enjoy your beautiful warm weather. Although there are some advantages to the cold, cozy up by the fireplace, ski, sled and um well, I'll think of something LOL. Hugs my friend!
