TWiP: Little round things

This Week in Pictures

Bowls and mandalas seem to dominate the latter part of the week. Little round things. They make me happy.

This week started out with fruit crisps, visiting family and a snow day.

I’d say more, but it’s Friday night, my decaf coffee is getting cold, and I am really, really chomping at the bit to slip into my pajamas and settle in with a good mystery and some knitting. I haven’t worked on my sweater since Sunday afternoon – it’ll never be finished at this rate!

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…

365: 2015 32/365 – Still knitting this sweater. Today, there’s a family Super Smash Bros tournament happening in the background.


365: 2015 33/365 – Snow Day! Or, more accurately, Icy Winter Mix Day!

365: 2016 40/366 – It was fun getting the ice off of the car this morning.I have half a mind to clean out the garage before next winter…


365: 2015 34/365 – I decluttered my night stand, and then I thought it could use a crochet mandala. This is my first attempt. It’s a little bit smaller than I’d like (and the ends aren’t woven in yet).


365: 2015 35/365 – I resisted a lot of things at Target this morning, but little bowls and M&M’s were not among them.


365: 2015 36/365 – Dear New Vacuum, You suck. Sincerely, Me. PS. I think I love you.

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.

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. The crocheted mandala is so pretty! I had to giggle at the bowls lol. So far I’ve resisted each time but after seeing your pictures, I may not be able to now!!

    1. I have to admit it – I went back and got two more!

  2. That’s it – I’ve decided now that I need a mandala too! So pretty!
    Although I need to be careful I don’t cover everything in yarn – if it were up to me, I would – the colours just make everything better!

    1. I know what you mean. My husband has started complaining about all of the crochet in our bedroom. Mind you, “all of the crochet” is that one mandala, and a tiny 15-square granny square throw I have hung over the back of a chair. Clearly his threshold is much much lower than mine!

  3. […] I didn’t whip up this weekend, but I searched through the blog archives and realized I only mentioned it in passing and I never shared the details. This thing has gotten a lot of comments and complements, so I […]
