Space for more

IMG_1739So the 3in1 is done and I am really pleased with the result. The Wollmeise yarn is lovely, very rich and intense colours, the pattern is great, really my style, I love the extra long sleeves.

IMG_1755I wasn’t too happy with the buttons initially but once I had sewn them on, I found them rather perfect.

The only problem really is that I still don’t know when to wear it. It is too precious to be worn with my children and their sticky fingers in sight. And it is also a woollen jumper and even in England we do expect something like spring and summer coming up now.

Never mind, I haven’t knitted anything big for myself since ages and it was about time.

Now, I still have to pack for our Easter trip starting tomorrow and I am still undecided… should I finish my longtime WIP, should I finally write down a few beginner patterns for my knitting students or should I start the next project as I just got the yarn for it.

And there is still the window yarn bombing in my mind….IMG_1742That is the window next to our door. It would be very nice to have something welcoming there (or something to make it a bit clearer that we are in fact NOT the dentist next door 😉 ) But I am not sure if I should draw attention to this window as it is uncleanable and then the dirt of I don’t know how many years would just really stand out.

This is the main window and it definitely needs some kind of decoration.

IMG_1743. Sadly I am suffering from a severe lack of ideas and need help. Any suggestions are welcome.  I wonder if I should do some kind of work in progress as otherwise I will never be able to do it anyway. Maybe going with the seasons? So I could add bit by bit and then maybe replace things? (I guess I am a little too late for my Easter decoration)

Or just wrap the bars one by one in different colours in some kind of pattern.

But now it is time to fill the half empty suitcases with an overambitious amount of yarn.
