We will be buying new furniture for the living/family room. Everything we have now is stuff my husband or I bought after college and have been hauling around with us for years. I'm particularly excited about getting a nice(ish) coffee table, something like this beauty from Macy's.

Of course, if we invest in a nice coffee table (i.e. something that hasn't had three previous owners and was bought at Goodwill), then we need to treat it well. Do I hear coasters?
I just finished these babies last night. Using the pattern for Pinwheel Coasters from Ravelry, I knitted these using some leftover Red Heart Fiesta from a previous project. I made 6 coasters with a #8 needle, then used various scrap yarn to darn the center hole, adding the different colors. I like how funky this set looks. And very utilitarian, too!
And on another decorating note, I think I may have found my ottoman:
I bought this ottoman at Target for around $55 (but I had a gift card). It doesn't really "match" the chair, but I love the fabric and all the colors. I think I'm going to keep it. Heck, its my knitting room - I can have whatever furniture I want, right?
