TWiP: Knitted bookends

This Week in Pictures, Week 17, 2018

This week was bookended by a lot of knitting. It’s nice having things on the needles again after a bit of a break.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2018 is mornings: #myyearofmornings2018) and any other extra images I may have posted.

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


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Apr 21 – So nice to have something on the needles again! I started this last night. It was going to be a #pdcportholecardigan but about 6 rows in, it became something else. I think I’m calling it Spike. 😁

Instagram πŸ“±: – Ready to separate the sleeves already. Tiny sweaters provide such instant gratification!

Instagram πŸ“±: – Knitting for me, history homework for him. β˜•β˜• [Taken at Starbucks.]


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Apr 22 – Another terrible weekend day of knitting and pleasant weather to get through. What a drag 🀣

Instagram πŸ“±: – We got a new hand-me-down mattress today. And I’ve put my favorite quilt on it. And it’s a beautiful Sunday afternoon with the window open and the sun streaming in. So, as you can see, I had no choice but to queue up my latest Quiet Time playlist and nap for an hour 😁 Time well spent, I say!


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Apr 23 – Such Monday πŸ˜ͺ [Taken at work.]

Instagram πŸ“±: – I am so happy with the way this little cardigan came out! The design reminds me of gears, so I’m going to call it “Cogwheel.” I found some buttons in my grandmother’s collection that will be perfect! It’s hard to tell from the photo, but that dark color in the yoke is actually green, so the green buttons are a nice match. Pattern coming soon! [UPDATE: It’s here!]


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Apr 24 – I treated myself to a new mousepad, complete with a photo I took in Ocean City a few years ago 😊 [Taken at work.]

Three on a Theme πŸ“±: Theme: I went for a walk today and saw… – A tree in bloom (finally!) [Taken in the parking lot at work during my lunch hour walk.]


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Apr 25 – It’s a rainy day, which is a little bit disappointing, but it’s also making me optimistic that tomorrow the trees in this parking lot will explode into pinks and purples 🏡 [Taken at work.]


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Apr 26 – Guess what! I just happened to notice it’s my 6th Instaversary! Six years ago today, I discovered that Instagram was available for Android, and though I didn’t have a smartphone at the time, I did have a tablet, and I was so excited! I was tied to WiFi, and the camera in that tablet was beyond terrible, but I found a way to make it work anyway 😁 [Taken at work.]


365 πŸ“±: #myyearofmornings Apr 27 – It’s funny how some trees can barely have anything on them yet, while others are bursting with blossoms. [Taken at work.]

Instagram πŸ“±: – Friday night knitting and Masterpiece Mystery πŸ’™. I’m making another #pdccogwheel cardigan… Have you gotten your copy of this new pattern yet? 😁

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 onΒ InstagramΒ β™₯
