TWiP: Blooming

This Week in Pictures, Week 16, 2022

Things are starting to come alive in the yard, the grass is more green than brown, I finished a knitting project, and I got boosted for the second time 💗

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.

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


I spent some time wandering around the yard with the camera today. It’s nice to see things blooming!


There are not many things that would make me happy for a 42-degree day in April, but a new sweater is one of them! This is my own pattern, a #pdcportholepullover, which is available in my shop 😊

I’ve wanted to knit one in these colors for a long time, so I’m really happy to have finally done it! This is knit in KnitPicks Simply Wool with KnitPicks Chroma for the stripes. I actually ran out of the body yarn in the middle of the cuff of the last sleeve, but I had some other random gray worsted in my stash, and I substituted. It’s not perfect, but you probably can’t tell unless you’re looking for it.

The younger son and I were on a drive and stopped at the Swamp for a little bit.
