wiwo wednesday vol. 7

This post is a day late but yesterday was a busy day so I had no time to write this post. Anyway, enough excuses, here’s this week’s wiwo edition.
My stripe obsession will probably be featured here for the rest of the year (at least!). I love working on it but at the same time I love working on projects that produce scraps so I have more colours to choose from for this scarf.

I went on a road trip to Cologne to visit my dad (he works there and commutes every week) and had lots of time to knit on my buttercup. Sadly, the hours of knitting spent on the stockinette section is hardly visible. I have two full skeins left and I have to finish the body, knit both sleeves and the neck edge. Originally I wanted to knit 3/4 sleeves but if I have to choose between a belly top and short sleeves I’ll pick short sleeves any time. We’ll see how far I get but I’d also love to add at least a thin stripe of this beautiful color to my stripe obsession.

Another ongoing project around here is organizing my yarn stash. So far I sorted everything by weight and took photos of most of my yarn and uploaded everything to ravelry. Right now my stash lives in plastic containers from IKEA. It is practical but not pretty; I’d love to find a glass cabinet on craigslist so I can see all my pretty yarn. Yet I don’t want the sun to suck all the color out of my pretty fibers…
I’ll write a more elaborate blog post about it when I find a solution that works for me.

    Marie, your buttercup is turning out lovely. If you want the progress to show more, then maybe you could place a locking stitchmarker at the point you are now and then let it sit there until next Wednesday?

      Yes, that's a great idea! To be honest I didn't pick up my buttercup yet because I'm working on a new pair of scrap socks and it's just so much fun to add new colours. I'm a stripe addict 😀

    I disagree – I can see a huge change in the buttercup from last week to this one! It's looking beautiful. I love that your cat snuck into the last photo 🙂

      Haha yes, it's impossible to take a knitting related photo without Lina magically appearing in it. Her photo bombing skills are getting better too!
