Is it me, or is this week’s mosaic very autumnal? Between the cozy blanket and the warm colors, you’d think this was the first week of October, instead of the first week of August. I need to step up my Summer game… I think it’s time to schedule a day trip to the beach!
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it 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 : Today’s goal: finish Row 4 (the all gray row). What do you think of the ombre effect on this blanket? It started with an all-brown row. After gray, it’ll transition into blue, followed by a touch of teal. I need these color changes to keep me entertained
365 : 2017 210/365 – I am on *fire* with this afghan today! I watched a ton of British TV and finished 2 entire rows. Now I have 3 rows and a border left! Or maybe 5 rows… I thought of another way to do it that might be nicer, but it means extra rows.
365 : 2017 211/365 – Tiring day. We helped my brother and sister-in-law move into their new apartment. I think it’s an early bedtime for me tonight. [Taken at my brother and sister-in-law’s new apartment.]
Instagram : I added two rows to my blanket yesterday, which was awesome and unexpected, but tonight I am dealing with all of those ends. Ends are *not* awesome. But weaving them in now beats having to do a whole blanket’s worth at the end! #pdc
365 : 2017 212/365 – Well, look who dropped in to say hello.
Instagram : My morning flatlay: keyboard, , a Kind bar, and a million vitamins. Workday commencing in 3 2 1… [Taken at work.]
365 : 2017 213/365 – Just your typical Tuesday evening, hanging out after dinner with my weird son. (That doesn’t narrow it down at all, does it? I mean the older weird one, LOL!)
Instagram : Hmmm… Clean my room? Or lie around and watch a Father Brown mystery? Whichever shall I choose?
365 : 2017 214/365 – I see things all the time when I’m driving, and I think, I should pull over and take a picture of that, but then I don’t do it. Today I did it. This sign is kind of weird. [Taken in Bedminster, NJ.]
Instagram : There are some in this house who have suggested that there are too many crochet doodads lying about. I don’t understand that language they are speaking
Instagram : Good morning
365 : 2017 215/365 – Lately the clouds have been so beautiful in the early evenings when I’m driving home.
Instagram : Pretty leaf, but too soon! [Taken at work.]
365 : 2017 216/365 – So this is where I am right now with this blanket: 5 rows of 10 squares are done, connected, and ends are woven in. I either have 3 more rows or 5 more, depending on how the next row turns out. This weekend’s goal is to at *least* finish up all of the blue squircle centers. 2 down, 18 (or 28, depending) to go!
Instagram : Taking a break from crocheting to think about my next knit. I’ve had a radical idea: my Rhinebeck sweater? I think it’s going to be a shawl this year I’m not generally a shawl knitter, but this idea is really grabbing me. I’m going to hang out on Ravelry for the rest of the night until I find my perfect pattern
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!
