TWiP: Giving myself a hand

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

I’ve done it again. I’ve stepped into more than half of my own photos this week. Sure, it’s usually just my hand, but it’s there. I’m becoming predictable…

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 2016), plus some phone snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

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


365: 2016 9/366 – So, I think maybe this time around I’ve found a cell phone case that fits my personality 😀


365: 2016 10/366 – So, I think I have learned a knitting lesson: if I’m going to ignore the advice to alternate hand-dyed skeins in an effort to avoid pooling of colors, then I really need to choose my skeins and do my knitting in a better-lighted area. I had no idea the bottom part of this sweater was coming out so much darker than the rest of it! I’m not sure I can be happy with this. I may have to rip it out… aside from that, though, I really like it. And it was a quick knit.


365: 2016 11/366 – Snack time!


365: 2016 12/366 – Made a quick ShopRite run tonight for firewood and Triscuits. [At ShopRite. Taken with my phone.]


365: 2016 13/366 – Aidan came home from school and told us about this game called GeoGuessr. It plops you down in a random spot in the world, and you have to wander around using Google Maps street view to figure out where you are. Totally addicting. I’ve especially enjoyed some of my strolls through quaint little villages in the UK – exactly the kind of places I’d want to go if I visited in person!


365: 2016 14/366 – Not. Even. Close.


365: 2016 15/366 – Finally making good on a Christmas Eve promise to bake more of the peppermint chocolate cupcakes 🙂

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!

  1. Don’t rip the sweater out! It looks planned and perfect!

    1. It’s funny. I posted that image on Facebook the day I took it, and I couldn’t believe the flurry of people telling me that exact same thing. So, I’m probably going to leave it 🙂 Thanks for chiming in!

  2. That’s exactly where I would want it darker to give the more slender look. I love the way it turned out.

    1. Thanks, Chloe. I’ve heard that same thing enough times now that I’ve been persuaded to leave it as it. It’s always nice when being lazy works out aesthetically 😀

  3. I think your sweater looks great! Your haircut is cute!

    1. Thanks, Jamie, I hope my hair stylist never retires. She always knows what I want!

  4. Love the post Lisa, and I can’t wait until you have your pens made again. They are so pretty and unique!

    1. Thanks, Mariann, I plan to make some more very soon!
