I've always wanted a rocking chair, and I didn't have any of my own chairs in the apartment. Unfortunately, Andrea's futon couch and papasan chair are too big for me, and don't provide me with any back support; not good when I'm trying to knit.
So I've been checking the local Craigslist postings constantly, on the lookout for a nice armchair or rocking chair. I drove out to Waterford, NY, on Wednesday (about 20 minutes away, or it should have been!), proceeded to get thoroughly lost, but bought this gliding rocker set (the ottomon rocks, too!) from the owner - on the spot - for $25. Yay!!!!!
