TWiP: Pleasant Weather

I’m in Starbucks this morning, sipping Blonde Roast and doing my taxes. And by “doing my taxes” I mean logging in to the software for the first time this year, and selecting the “file an extension” linkย ๐Ÿค‘

If you were at all invested in the progression of the Vernal Pool pullover I introduced you to last week, you’ll see by the end of this post that the story has come to a less-than-satisfying conclusion. (Spoiler alert…)

I was satisfied to just let it go for now, but as of this morning I have a renewed interest. Before heading to Starbucks, I grabbed my Rainbow Porthole, threw it over my head and was reminded why I started the new sweater. This porthole is just the best kind of “wear everyday” sweater. The shape is perfect. Everything about it is perfect, except maybe the color scheme. While I like the rainbow thing, it’s not my favorite. I need something in all of those blues and greens that make me happiest. And while I could just make another Porthole Pullover just like the rainbow one, I really want to do something different with the yoke.

So I’m still thinking about the darn thing, and despite the fact that it will surely be too warm to wear a sweater by the time I finish, I do think I may find myself casting on again very very soon.


Well, it looks like I’m out of coffee and out of things to say. I’m going to get myself a free refill, proofread this post, and then go home. Have a lovely weekend!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

Itโ€™s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

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


365 : 2017 98/365 – Happy Birthday Eamonn – Game night tonight! And a cake for the boy who turned 14 on Tuesday.


365 : 2017 99/365 – Neil Clarke – Somebody around here is kind of a big deal.


365 : 2017 100/365 – No Parking – It’s been such a beautiful day! And it’s not a bad evening, either. Aidan and I took a short walk around the park after dinner tonight – the first time this year! [Taken at the park.]


365 : 2017 101/365 – Not all who wander are lost – I used to have this magnet on my car. I should put it back – I’ve been doing a lot of lunch-hour wandering lately.


365 : 2017 102/365 – Summer! – We had a few days that were so nice and warm that it inspired me to get out the Summer music for my drive ๐Ÿ™‚ [Taken at the gas station.]


365 : 2017 103/365 – Blended – It’s 7pm and I’m brewing coffee on the front steps. I really hope this jar full of odds and ends is at least half decaf, or I’m in for a long wakeful night.


365 : 2017 104/365 – Closer than they appear – It’s been a good week for driving with the windows open!

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 Flickrย 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. Awww, sorry about the sweater, Lisa. I hate it when that happens! :/ At least when it’s finished it will be how you want it…nothing worse than finishing something you won’t wear…hugs though. It will be beautiful when you do finish. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Pretty cake!
