TWiP: Blues and Greens

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

I managed to surround myself in all of my favorite colors this week, if this mosaic is any indication. Oh, and school is out! Yay!

Speaking of things that are my favorite colors, I have some knitting calling my name. How about you enjoy this week’s pictures, while I go spend some time with that cardigan in progress? 🙂

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2016), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

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



365 📷: 2016 170/366 – I can’t remember the last time my kids were on the Wii together. It’s kind of nice to be hanging out here in the same room on a Saturday afternoon. It’s such a rarity these days!

Voila! 😊

So messy to make, but kinda worth it. #strawberryjam

365 📷: 2016 171/366 – We spent Father’s Day hanging out with my Dad & the rest of the family, and then Aidan & Eamonn tossed the gigantic frisbee around the front yard. [Taken at my parents’ house.]



365 📷: 2016 172/366 – Starting from scratch with my latest knitting project. Despite having invested 60 rows into the original, I unraveled it. It’s going to be a lot better (and significantly less expensive) in this new yarn: Berroco Weekend on sale (vs. Berroco Remix full price)



365 📷: 2016 173/366 – Things are growing in the lily garden.



365 📱: 2016 174/366 – Last day of school picnic! So glad summer is here 🙂 [Taken at Eamonn’s school.]



365 📷: 2016 175/366 – I’m pretty sure I am going to live to regret this blank canvas I’ve left on the refrigerator…

Progress. #junesfavoritecardigan take two 😊

365 📷: 2016 176/366 – Well, this is embarrassing.

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!
