TWiP: Blue Hair, Gold Cardigan, Purple Flowers

This Week in Pictures, Week 10, 2021

It was a colorful week!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Most of these images are posted on Instagram, but others aren’t posted anywhere but here. Some days there may be no photos, and other days there may be multiples. It’s more laid back than the Project 365s of previous years. You can learn more here 🙂

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S9).

Here’s a very short video, featuring 1.5-second moments from the week:


Greetings from Starbucks curbsides pickup, where I’m currently rocking a medley of purples, blues, and teals in my hair, courtesy of 20 minutes with #overtoneblueforbrownhair. (The color is more vibrant in person 😯) It’s one color, but it took differently to different areas of my head. The most vibrant, though, are my gray hairs, which are now an electric purple-blue. What I really wanted was green, but I’ve been on the waiting list for that color to come back in stock for so long, I finally gave up and went with blue. It’s all in good (temporary) fun. And there’s plenty more in the jar, so I can do this again sometime, if I feel like it 🙂 (Also in this photo, my rainbow #hitchhikershawl and a #pdcmasks of which there are plenty still in stock in my shop [hint, hint😜])

Trader Joe’s had pussy willows. They look right at home here!


I finished knitting this sweater yesterday, but there was no time for a photo shoot today. Mondays.


I finished my #oxbowcardigan 🙂. I think this is going to be a super cozy and warm sweater to bum around the house in. These pictures, though, really emphasize to me what I already knew: I gained some weight in the past year. Bleh. I don’t love it, but it is what it is, and I am posting these shots anyway because (1) if I wait until I feel perfect, I will never post another selfie, and (2) like most people, I am my own worst critic, and I know that. So, until I have returned to my own personal best shape, I will keep taking photos, even if I have to creatively crop them to keep myself happy 😁

Editing and cropping by me 😜
P.S. That stitch pattern, though! Isn’t it unique and pretty?
P.P.S. I made a little stick thingy to hold it closed. I didn’t like the way it looked on me flopping open.

It’s the “I’m about to turn off the TV and go to bed, but wait, did I take a picture of anything yet today?” picture.


What is it about kitchens and morning light?


Spring is in the air!
And in the dirt, too 💜💛💜

  1. […] I threw on the Oxbow Cardigan I knit last year. I love this sweater, but it has no buttons or zipper, and I generally like my front flaps to stay […]
