TWiP: All She Wants to do is Knit

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

It’s a yarn-heavy post this week, isn’t it? It’s funny how often my weekly photos put me in the position of having to explain that I did more than just put my feet up and stitch over the course of seven days.

I think it must just be a fact that I am far more inspired to commit the stitching moments to Instagram than I am the looking-for-a-job moments, the emptying-the-dishwasher moments, and the folding-laundry moments.

Can you blame me? 😜

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.

Under water selfie 🌊 Hello 😊

365 📱: 2016 205/366 – Finally got some underwater shots that consisted of more than just everybody’s legs ☺ Thanks to my nephew for the handstand! [Taken at my parents’ house.]



365 📷: 2016 206/366 – The first of the tiger lilies has opened up! These are such odd-looking flowers. Also, I think they should be called "leopard lilies."



365 📷: 2016 207/366 – Remember that fabric I designed a few weeks ago? The pattern works on flip-flops, too… I’ll definitely be blogging about this in more detail soon!



365 📷: 2016 208/366 – Sewing shirt number three this afternoon!



365 📷: 2016 209/366 – Lately, 8pm means a lit candle, cold-brewed coffee, a good mystery on TV, and knitting. I’m fine with that. I could be done with this sweater in a week or two.



365 📷: 2016 210/366 – Hey, when the Snapple goes on sale, we Clarkes do not mess around.



365 📷: 2016 211/366 – I’ve been wearing Lip Shimmers for several years now, usually Cherry or Papaya (warm hues a couple of shades darker than my natural lip color). I bought this Strawberry one on a whim today, and wow – it brought me right back to high school when my preferred lip look was the palest possible pearly pink. All I need is some electric blue mascara, and I can feel 17 again, LOL!

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. Thanks! I hope I finish it soon, because something else just caught my eye, and I am eager to give that a try! 😄

  2. Nice! Your sweater looks gorgeous! I love that color 🙂

    1. Me too 😊. I knit so much on Sunday, I gave myself a headache… I should be able to finish it this week, though. I hope!
