This week I’ve been knitting up the simpler two-colour version of my latest pattern-to-be. It has a little intarsia – well, more like faux-tarsia, because there’s only one main colour that goes all the way across each row, but 6 little yarn butterflies are hanging from the back of the work.

I was spending a lot of time keeping the butterflies under control & untangled. Here’s the solution I came up with for storage when I need to put my work down:

I actually went out to my recycling bin and brought this back inside to work with my knitting. It’s perfect! I close it up and my project is now portable and I don’t have to spend any time detangling before I start it up again.

The forecast for today is snow & freezing rain. I decided that I needed to do something to feel like it was spring & this is what I came up with:

No flowers here yet, but I have some nice purples to look at.
