You may notice that much of the imagery in this post includes the new ripple blanket I started crocheting last week. Sometimes a project shows up in every picture because I’m excited about making it, or finishing it, or using it, and it’s all I can think about.
That’s not really the case here. I’m enjoying working on it for the most part, and it will be nice to use when it’s finished, but if something else more exciting came along, I’d probably dump the blanket in a WIP bag and ignore it until next January 😜
But it’s January, and it’s cold, and there’s a pandemic still raging out there, so I haven’t really had anywhere to go, or anything interesting to do that could tear me away from this blanket project.
That said, I have had an idea for a sweater I’d like to knit. I’m thinking a Porthole Pullover in a nice natural gray, with a gradation of aquas and teals for the yoke. I know the last thing I need is another sweater. I mean, I haven’t even shown you the last one I finished! (It’s awesome, though, and I really should get on that soon, but until then you can see a glimpse of it in the first photo below.) I have a coupon, so I suspect I’ll be talking myself into buying that sweater yarn pretty easily. It can come out of my Polka Dot Cottage advertising budget, right? Since it’s my own pattern I’m making? Sure… let’s go with that 😁
Oooh, maybe I’ll get a little extra yarn and making a matching Porthole Cardigan for one of my nieces 🤔 How fun would that be? 😍
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
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.
Thanks for helping me celebrate the week! If you want to see some of this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Instagram ♥
