(this is before I started working on the lamp)
This is the new lamp, next to my new craigslist chair buy. I'm sure all of you locals had seen this listed for a couple of weeks. I was interested, but not for the asking price, so after it was relisted for the second time, I called the seller and asked her bottom dollar, and was able to purchase the chair for half of the asking price.( It never hurts to ask.) I love the chair, made by Westnofa, the leather is on the worn side, but all buttons are in tact, the leather is free of rips or cracks, and it is very comfortable!
And last but not least, it finished knitting my wool throw. I am in love with the texture of this piece, the color, and feel. It took a little longer than I was expecting, but only because sometimes I don't take into consideration the two children I have to take care of, instead of spending all evening knitting like I would like to. The throw goes well with the new chair and lamp, now now I have a great corner to sit an knit and read, If only I had the time.
