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: 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 🙂

TWiP: Improvisationally Inclined

This Week in Pictures, Week 43, 2021

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. Some knitting, some crocheting, and some slow cooking.

TWiP: NJ Fiber Festival and Other Stories

This Week in Pictures, Week 37, 2021

I finished crocheting a mandala for Mom last Saturday. We went to the NJ Sheep and Fiber Festival on a whim on Sunday. I swatched for a new knitting project on Monday. Our old van that would not start got towed out of the driveway. I lit a couple of candles. That’s pretty much it for this mid-September week 🙂

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.
