TWiP: My Workspace Seven Times

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

I’m sorry. The pictures this week are not in the least bit diverse. I did try near the end of the week, but it was a case of too little too late. The thing is, if you spend an inordinate amount of time in one particular spot, you’re not going to have much else to photograph aside from that one particular spot, you know?

Better luck next time. Maybe I’ll try leaving the house or something πŸ˜‰

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot with my DSLR for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2015), plus some phone snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

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

Saturday

365: 2015 332/365 – I don’t really care what’s on the outside of the cup. It’s the blonde roast on the inside that makes me happy β˜•

Sunday

365: 2015 333/365 – I’ve been experimenting with new ways to build the Afghan Cane. On the right is the original (very fiddly) way. In the middle is an easier way, but I think it looks too messy. On the left is the easiest way yet that I came up with last night, but I think it’s too squared-off to be realistic, and the texture lines are too straight. Too bad… it was so much easier!

Monday

Instagram: When your only vest is green and your most comfortable cowl is red, it’s kind of hard to avoid being a walking Christmas billboard… [ugh! this phone’s camera is so bad in low light!]

365: 2015 334/365 – I’m taking a quick break from my usual claywork to focus for a moment on button-making. I have to mix just the right shades of pink and cream for these little sweaters-in-progress. (The sweaters are prototypes for a new knitting pattern that I have been very sporadically working on over the last several months.)

Tuesday

Instagram: It’s a rainy day. I filled my dining room with candle light and Christmas music, brewed some coffee, and now I’m going to sit by the window and make a half dozen seam rippers β˜ΊπŸŽ„β˜”β˜•πŸŽ΅β€

365: 2015 335/365 – Some after supper knitting: working on the second sleeve on this little cardigan. For such a small sweater, I sure am taking my time getting to the finish line!

Wednesday

365: 2015 336/365 – It’s a very blue workspace this afternoon!

Thursday

Instagram: LAST CALL for custom orders! Less than 5 hours left to pick your own colors and patterns. (These guys here are waiting to be sanded, buffed, drilled, and otherwise assembled.) 😊

365: 2015 337/365 – I thought you might be tired of all of the pictures of my workspace lately, so I stepped out the back door and took a snap of the sky. All of the leaves are gone. Definitely December.

Friday

Instagram: Enjoying a ginger molasses cookie while I get this week’s shipments out. Mmmmmmm. #traderjoes #polkadotcottage #pdc

365: 2015 338/365 – I ran out of yellow ink in my printer, so my new CD cover is pink and blue instead of red and green πŸ˜‰

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!
