I really like it when I have something worthwhile to share in these weekly roundups. I’ll admit that some weeks feel a bit sparse. But this is one of those satisfying weeks, with multiple projects to share. First up, is an improvised triangular scarf I knit from some of the surprise Malabrigo from last week. Then, is the mandala I made up to go with my mom’s living room rug. I’ve shown you that before, but not fully blocked, and not on the new table where it belongs. I also have a new vest knit and a bowl of soup to share.
All of these things were either improvised completely, or were made differently from the original instructions. I must be on a creative streak 🙂
It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Some of these images are posted on Instagram, but many 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 🙂
Maker's Market 2022 (2022) I'll be at Urban Sewciety in Westfield, NJ this Saturday (December 3rd) to participate in the annual Maker's Market! Will I see you there? Read on for instructions for ordering ahead, if you would like me to set something aside for you.
TWiP: Picture the Holidays, Take Three (2018) I have spent all year capturing my mornings, but I find it hard to be innovative when I spend most of my morning hours in the office, where I have very little control over lighting and atmosphere, and more importantly, where I have a job to do that does not involve photographing my breakfast. So, I've been feeling a bit uninspired with My Year of Mornings, which is why I jumped at the change to participate in Picture the Holidays again.
