TWiP: Stopover

I started off this week sneezing my head off, and ended it taking my Stopover Sweater off of the needles. I am wearing it right now – very toasty. And fuzzy. It’s shed all over my winter vest and now it looks like we have a dog πŸ˜‰

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…


Instagram πŸ“±: My sweetie got me soup from #shoprite and it is delicious. I love me a good cup of soup when I have a cold 🍜

365 πŸ“·: 2017 21/365 – Roku – How did I ever entertain myself on a sick day before this little device came into my life?


365 πŸ“·: 2017 22/365 – Mint – Happiness is a packet of mint hot chocolate you didn’t know you had ☺


365 πŸ“±: 2017 23/365 – include coffee.h – Spotted in the kitchen at work this morning: the world’s nerdiest coffee mug. These are my people πŸ˜‰ [Taken at work.]


365 πŸ“·: 2017 24/365 – Keep Out – Just a friendly reminder to the neighborhood mouse population, a member of which skittered past me this morning in the family room, Three times.

Instagram πŸ“±: My #stopoversweater is almost done! Just another 10 or 15 rounds, I think 😊


Instagram πŸ“±: When you’re so close to the finish line that you can’t resist a little lunch hour #knitting 😊 [Taken at work.]

365 πŸ“±: 2017 25/365 – Ladies – It seems some of the women in the office building where I work, are slobs, and some other women are cranky about it. [Taken at work.]


Instagram πŸ“±: My #stopoversweater off the needles and blocked 😊. I should probably try it on…

365 πŸ“·: 2017 26/365 – SBL – I tried a smoked butterscotch latte. It reminded me of butterscotch candies. Thumbs up.


365 πŸ“±: 2017 27/365 – Harolds – Went out for lunch with my co-workers today, and wow, this place lived up to its reputation for gigantic portions. There was a collective food coma in the office this afternoon πŸ˜‰ [Taken at Harold’s in Edison, NJ.]

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on FlickrΒ and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!

  1. These pictures are so fun! And woo hoo! Your sweater is gorgeous! I had some mitts that shed like that…it was the first few times, and then they calmed down. πŸ™‚
    It sounds like you have a great group of people to work with! Have a fabulous rest of the week!

    • Thanks, Jamie! Liking the sweater, despite it’s sheddiness, and work is pretty good, too! Ive always enjoyed my alone time, but it’s actually pretty nice to not be such a hermit πŸ˜‰

What do you think about that?
