Since Saturday, I've been busy getting the sewing/knitting/crafting room in order. At this moment it is set up for machine knitting. This room is my personal workspace. Not a family room, a room for me to use to enjoy my hobbies.
It feels great to finally be able to set up not just one but 2 machines and not have to worry about taking them down because they are in the way. One is my original Brother KH970 and the other is a Brother KH270 that I finally got to bring home.
The remaining machines are in the closet. Ideally I wish I had room to set them all up, well at least all of the electronic ones. Now that there's sufficient space the plan is to become just as or more proficient than I am at hand knitting.
I was obviously very delusional when I thought that I'd be able to bring all the yarn out of storage to the house. I've managed to bring about 1/5 of it into this room. I haven't begun to think about bringing any of the machine knitting cones. There were a lot of cones that came with the KnitKing V and 270 that I'd forgotten about, so that's what I'll be using for the moment.
The cabinets were purchased from an estate last summer. I've been waiting for them to arrive and had forgotten how large they are. There's plenty of storage space in the cabinets on the bottom. I'm using them to store the accessories for the machine knitting and the coned yarn amd I'm putting as much handknitting yarn as I can cram into the little cubies on top.
There's still a lot of work to be done getting everything organized and weeding out stuff. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy this spot and slow down the work pace a little. The Cascade Pastaza finally come today and there are some Log Cabin socks looming on the horizon.
