We’ve barely been home all week. We’ve been to Neil’s parents’ house twice, the boys and I have visited my Mom and Dad twice, Neil and I went out to a restaurant and a hotel for his birthday, and Neil is now in Kansas City for a convention.
We’ve spent a great deal of time celebrating the half century Neil has spent on this planet, and when I haven’t been involved in birthday stuff, I’ve been lounging around, visiting, and knitting. Much to the detriment of my house (it’s too much of a mess, I don’t even want to think about it).
That new sweater pattern I began working on last week is coming along quite nicely. The yoke features a bright rainbow pattern, which I’m really liking. We also saw an actual rainbow in the sky this week, so all in all, it’s been darn colorful around here.
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 226/366 – Party time! Neil turns 50 on Wednesday. [Taken at Neil’s parents’ house.]
365 📱: 2016 227/366 – The life. [Taken at my parents’ house.]
365 📱: 2016 228/366 – I had an errand to run tonight, so I took myself out for a little evening decaf while I was at it. [Taken at Starbucks.]
365 📱: 2016 229/366 – The birthday celebrating continues with a rainbow over Morristown. [Taken at the Hyatt Regency Morristown.]

Last night I ripped back several inches on my prototype #pdcportholepullover because I'd forgotten there should be four increase rounds for the adult size, not three. Ugh! The trials of designing your own pattern, eh? So glad I test these things before unleashing them on the unsuspecting #knitting public 😉 #pdc
365 📱: 2016 231/366 – Neil left for the World Science Fiction Convention this morning, so the boys and I are taking the opportunity to spend a few days with my parents. I’m kicking off my mini vacation with a relaxing dip in the pool. [Taken (underwater) in my parents’ pool.]

I figured out if I put half of the stitches on a second circular needle, I could spread it out enough to try it on. So glad it fits! Now I can get on with #knitting an additional foot of stockinette without worrying that the whole thing would be the wrong size 💟💟 #pdc #pdcportholepullover
365 📷: 2016 232/366 – Ugh. This kitchen. It’s been sorely neglected this busy week. And looking at it now makes me wish I’d stayed at my parents’ nice clean house for a second night! 😉
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!
