Instagram photo of the day dump

I am really having fun with this photo of the day thing on Instagram.  Here are some of my postings from the last week or so...

Where I ate breakfast - a shake at my desk.
Stairs - near my office...

A sunset - sometimes you have to get creative when the assignment is a sunset and you are in the middle of a thunderstorm.

Something I do not like - work.  Ick.  Sure wish I didn't have to.

Something orange - road construction season has begun.  While I'm very appreciative of road improvements, it's going to stink to have a major road near my house closed until fall.

Hair - Dis my curly hair. :)

Something I found - I love it when I find this sitting on the table next to me!

We have an incredibly busy weekend ahead of us with a dance competition taking up most of it.  Luckily it's in town.  I plan to bring my knitting and curl up in a corner somewhere and work on my newest project.  I've been wanting to try something lacy for a while, so I chose this:

I think it's gorgeous, and will either keep it as something pretty and snuggly for myself, or save it for the perfect gift when I need one (hopefully for someone who doesn't read my blog).  You start in the center and work your way out, adding more stitches as you go.  I'm really loving it so far, though I'm only on row 23.  We'll see how much I love it when there are 439865759867 stitches per row.  For the record, that's a lot of stitches.  I will keep you updated on the progress as it's coming along. 

So hopefully at the end of the weekend, I'll have some good progress made, and some pictures of a bunch of gorgeous dancers for you all to see.  Hope you are enjoying your Friday evening.  I'm going to go work on row 24.




  1. Looks like a lot of fun. I've been wanting to cast on another lace project lately. Speaking from experience, even when you love the project, it does really start to drag once it starts taking 30 min. + to complete a row. :)

    1. I'm sure it will! I'm on row 49 now, and it already taking too long! Good think I'm not on a deadline or anything. Like, you know, making a shawl for my wedding... ;)
