I have a blanket to show you! I got caught up in other things and never blogged the finished stroller blanket. You know, the one I started many months ago and went through several iterations before I finally settled on a color scheme and design I liked? I will definitely have to write up a little show-and-tell for you next week. The blanket was a gift, but I subjected it to a photo shoot before I gave it away.
Finishing that blanket last Friday night freed me to get back to the cabled sweater I started a few months ago. I’m so close to the finish line on this one, I can taste it. It’s one of those things where the stitching looks really complicated and I can hardly believe it came off of my needles. I love it!
I plan to finish that this weekend, and after that I plan to live in it constantly until the summer comes. I think those are both do-able plans.
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for my Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2015), plus some everyday-life snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
