TWiP: All. About. This. Sweater.

It has seriously been The Week of The Sweater around here. It’s all I could photograph, for several days. This sweater that I frogged twice before settling on the current design. This sweater whose colors are so hard to accurately capture. This sweater that I’ve actually gotten to wear in MAY because the weather is completely nuts.

Seriously, it’s been far too cold for May, and if I didn’t have a brand new knit that I was excited about, it would be making me pretty miserable. But I do have a brand new knit that I am excited about, and so I will not gripe about this weather. Not too much, anyway.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it 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 126/365 – Had a nice visit with my parents today, and now I’m going to cozy up with my knitting for the evening. It’s really something else, how I can breeze through knitting the body in a few days, and then take a week to finish a single sleeve. I’m losing my will to continue, but I must persevere!



365 📷: 2017 127/365 – Finally. The sweater is finished and having a good soak. I hope I like it after all of this 😉



365 📷: 2017 128/365 – I still have a few ends to weave in, but aside from that, it’s done! And I do think I really like it. It’s going to be a chilly day tomorrow, so I’ll probably have a chance to take it for a spin somewhere other than my bathroom.



365 📱: 2017 129/365 – I took a little walk today at lunch time. I think I’m going to do this more often. It’s a pretty campus, with lots of trees, and it’s good to get out of the building and get some fresh air. Truth be told, I do go out most days, and while I get plenty of fresh air, I don’t get much exercise riding around in my car with the windows open 😉 [Taken at work.]



365 📱: 2017 130/365 – My pretzel stash is dwindling, and the future of afternoon snacking is in peril. [Taken at work.]



365 📷: 2017 131/365 – I’m glad I checked the forecast, but I’m not thrilled about what I saw when I did. A suitcase destined for the beach in May should not have this many heavy sweaters in it.



365 📷: 2017 132/365 – We’re in Ocean City again, and it’s pretty chilly, but we have sun! And I got to wear my new sweater yesterday, so there’s another silver lining. Today I’m wearing my rainbow Porthole Pullover, and I found a matching beaded bracelet in a favorite shop (so, of course, I now own a matching beaded bracelet…) [Taken in ocean city.]

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!
