TWiP: Colorful Days

This Week in Pictures, Week 35, 2019

This has been a particularly colorful week. Between the red of the cardigan I’m knitting, and the beautiful blue skies, there hasn’t been a single drab-looking day.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Flickr and Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 and any other extra images I may have posted.

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S7).

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


Iced coffee and swatching ❤️ – Happy Saturday! I bought this Donegal wool in Ireland, and plan to knit a #travellersendcardigan pattern by @feller.carol as soon as I figure out which needle to use 🙂

I came up here to knit, but this late afternoon sun on the bed always makes me want to settle in for a cozy nap. I think I might be part cat.

What a beautiful day it has been! It’s cloudless now, but earlier, when I was driving and couldn’t stop to capture it, there was a stunning cloud-filled sky.

Off to a good start this weekend. It would be longer, except this is not a mindless TV knit, and I am watching TV anyway, and periodically having to rip out something I did wrong while not paying attention 😁. Also, I reprinted the cable instructions on a single page, because flipping back and forth was super annoying. It’s gone much more quickly since that little hack.

A bit of Batternberg Cake for breakfast, slightly squished from its journey in a suitcase.

I’d love to sit out here in the back yard sipping coffee, but I’ve already been approached by three mosquitoes in the time it took me to take this picture. Think I’ll just sit inside next to an open window instead.

I can’t wait to wear this sweater this fall! I’ll probably be separating the sleeves on my lunch hour today…

When your work tablet’s screen begins to bulge, and there’s a burn mark on the display next to where the power is connected, that’s usually a good sign that it’s time to ask the boss for a different computer.

Think anyone would notice if I came back here tomorrow with a pair of scissors and snipped myself a few?

Tea, key lime cookies and candlelight 💛
Happy Thursday!

Story for Thursday


Parking at Trader Joe’s can be near impossible, but it seems the Friday night of a 3-day weekend might just be an exception.
