I bet that got your attention didn't it?
After complaining for two years about how bright our bedroom is at night, we finally decided to do something about it. Last Saturday, we made a trip to Ikea and came home with some pretty dark purple curtains. They are almost the same color as the flowers in the artwork. The curtains are semi-sheer and with the blinds open provide light during the day, but with the blinds closed at night the room is really dark which makes for a better nights sleep.
While we were at Ikea, we found a duvet cover that matched the curtains, so we bought it and a new duvet too. The first thing Steve said when we had it all put together was, "It looks like a grownup's room now." I think it looks great and now the sun doesn't wake me up at 5:00 am!
In other news, I finished my Hey Teach sweater. It was a quick and easy knit. I love the color and the way it turned out. What I don't like about it is the size. It is a little too big and a little short. I should have made a large instead of an extra large. I will definitely be making another one in the near future.
I also finished the blue lacy socks. I like the way they turned out and they didn't take that long to knit either. This is the same yarn that I used for Dad's socks.
