TWiP: Too Soon to Look Like Fall

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

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 Flickr 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!
