TWiP: Family, food, knitting

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.

📷 = taken with my Canon EOS 80 D
📱 = taken with my Samsung Galaxy S5

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

Saturday

365 📷: 2017 280/365 – As the kid and his number two pencils headed down the path towards his SATs, his mother became that weirdo in the school parking lot, pointing a camera out her window and hoping there were no cops around to think her suspicious. [Taken at WHRHS.]

Sunday

365 📷: 2017 281/365 – This street sign has been speaking to me since I first saw it, many years ago. It’s like a command. Lisa, drive! And so I do… [Taken in Chatham Township, NJ.]

Monday

365 📷: 2017 282/365 – Working from home this morning, and the coffee hater is not here. It’s nice to be able to brew myself a cup inside the house!

Tuesday

365 📷: 2017 283/365 – He knows I don’t like tomato chunks in my spaghetti sauce ☺

Wednesday

365 📷: 2017 284/365 – They keys to successful sock knitting for me appear to be the use of worsted weight wool and a toe-up construction. Just the same, these are probably getting unraveled. I think they’re going to be too big. I’ll make up my mind after the heel. If nothing else, this can be my practice sock (which is good, because if you looked closely, you’d know I really need that).

Thursday

365 📷: 2017 285/365 – This is every night at our house.

Friday

365 📷: 2017 286/365 – It’s that time of year again… [Taken in Stirling, NJ.]

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. I almost always use Magic Loop for toe up socks. I’m always afraid I;’m going to lose a dpn

    Here’s a great lesson on casting on toe up with circular needles http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATmagiccaston.html

    1. I think I’m going to try that next time… Thanks for the link!

    2. I tried that method yesterday, and wow! So much easier! Thanks for the link 😊
