TWiP: January Ripples

This Week in Pictures, Week 2, 2022

You may notice that much of the imagery in this post includes the new ripple blanket I started crocheting last week. That’s because 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 crocheting. Though I’d be open to opportunities if they magically presented themselves.

TWiP: Newfound Punctuality

This Week in Pictures, Week 1, 2022

This week I’ve made an effort to use my Canon 80D wherever possible. What I lose in convenience by not using my handy phone, I more than make up for in quality, I think. It’s not that my phone doesn’t take lovely pictures. In fact, my current phone is orders of magnitude better than the camera I was using when I started this blog. But there’s something about a DSLR photo that just looks better.

1 Second Everyday for 2021

1 Second Everyday for 2021

I decided to do this project when I came across a few videos from the first time I tried this, back in 2018. I only managed 3 non-consecutive months with that project, but those little films contained clips with my dad, his brother, a great-uncle, and a cat, all of whom are no longer with us. It made me realize that even though I have a huge library of photographs of the people I love, there’s something extra special about moving pictures.

TWiP: The Last Week of the Year

This Week in Pictures, Week 52, 2021

I can’t properly express how much it pleases me to be ending the year on a Friday. For TWiP purposes, all weeks end on Fridays, so when the end of a week corresponds with the end of the year, it just feels so neat and tidy. How nice for my 2021 photo and video projects not to extend awkwardly into the middle of another week! I’ve learned a few things this year, photographically speaking, and will tailor my 2022 project accordingly 🙂

TWiP: Another Pandemic Christmas

This Week in Pictures, Week 51, 2021

Just like last year, we connected via video to watch everybody open their gifts from three different locations: the gathering at Mom’s house, my living room, and a quarantined bedroom. It wasn’t ideal, but I’m glad that we have the option of this type of alternate last-minute plan.

TWiP: Polymer Inspired

This Week in Pictures, Week 50, 2021

I wrapped up my ornament-making season this week, and then whipped up a few jewelry pieces, because I was surprisingly still in the mood. That’s not great news for my dining room table, but it’s good news for anyone who’s been thinking they’d like a new colorful bangle bracelet to go with that sweater…

TWiP: The plural form of Flax

This Week in Pictures, Week 49, 2021

It was a full week. I’m thinking about how to refer to multiple Flax sweaters in a grammatically acceptable way, because I finished one Flax and started another this week. I also made more family portrait ornaments, and moved permanently out of the office space that I used to occupy before the pandemic.

TWiP: Ornament Season Begins

This Week in Pictures, Week 47, 2021

Ah, Thanksgiving week. I have always loved Thanksgiving, both for the opportunity to gather with family, and as a harbinger of the Christmas season. But during years such as this one, where I have been gainfully employed, I have also come to appreciate Thanksgiving for the four-day weekend it provides 🙂
