Houston…we have applied icord!! It was a very rocky start, but I figured it out and have been buzzing right along with it. I have about half of blanket one to do yet, but I am feeling great success!! Woo hoo!
Thinking About – The Instagram conundrum… why do I see all the posts I want to see when I open Instagram in a browser window on my pc but from the app on my phone I must search for friends’ posts? Really, this is making me so mad. Also, am I the only one getting a million “promoted” posts on the phone app? Instagram, you are making me crazy and not in a good way! I have been trying to go through and “turn on notifications” for all the people I want to see however, that is a process in itself! Yes… this is really not a problem in the scheme of things, but there you have it.
Grateful For – The spate of sunny days we have had recently! Even the chilly mornings are easier to take with bright blue skies! I only walked one day where it was a bit “misty” out, every other day was just glorious!
Inspired By – Robin’s Back to the Mat! Yes, this week has been hard (and there are still 2 more days to go!!) but I feel so accomplished when I complete my time on the mat! Note to self… be inspired by your own motivation!
Fun, fun, fun – This weekend is sure to be full of fun, especially since Steve is taking Monday off and we have plans to go and enjoy the southwestern PA sights! I will be back here on Tuesday to tell you all about it!
Things to ponder – The preliminary deets for Project Peace 2018 went up this week!! I did not knit a peace project last year and I really need some peace this year… badly! Proceeds will be donated to Seeds of Peace this year, and I am super inspired to participate. I am hoping that I will have some fellow peace-seeking knitters joining me!
And, that’s all I have for this week! Have a great weekend and I will see you all back here on Tuesday!
The blanket is looking wonderful! It’s a lot of work to do all that I-cord, but it will so be worth it.
I wish I had the answer to the IG question, but I’m just as puzzled.
I didn’t know about the feed issues on Instagram but I do get too many ads. Off to check on Project Peace – need more of that in my life too.
Oh, Kat, the blanket and applied i-cord looks beautiful! It is really a great success and I thank you for all your work. I’m having the same thing happen with Instagram. I’ve mostly quit facebook for ig, but the pretty pictures and inspiration are giving way to a lot more frustration, and I’m spending less time there. I’ll be seeking peace with you this year, maybe not on schedule, but I’ll be participating in some way. Have a wonderful long weekend!
Ever since Facebook acquired Instagram, it has gone downhill.
Yes ……..WAY too many ads.
love seeing the blankets – can’t wait to see them once they are done – they do look wonderful
Enjoy your lovely weekend, Kat!
We’re headed out of town this weekend, too! Have a great time!
The facebook “improvements” on IG are terrible. I don’t see who I want to see, and too much of what I don’t.
A couple weeks ago I took 3 classes with Nicky Epstein, and my whole perspective of i-cord and embellishments had changed. I really dislike the promos on IG; I have found inspiration with the Behr paint ads, but I find them pretty annoying. Enjoy your little road trip-look forward to the photos.
yay for applied i-cord … and for a FUN weekend away!! my solution to IG was to unfollow a lot. now my feed is a lot smaller and the ads seem fewer/more closely aligned to what I like to see. not ideal, for sure, but it works!
Ditto on Instagram! Usually I only check any social media from my computer. Saves the sanity. Enjoy your weekend!!
That blanket is perfection!
Samesies for IG. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! We got to spend it in Saratoga Springs, NY and it was gorgeous! (But Doug and I think the foliage is pretty meh this year.)
It’s so generous of you to put together the blankets. I’m putting one together that I made with sock yarns and I didn’t realize how much work it would be! You are an angel to do two! Thank you. Can’t wait to see them.
wait a minute! I can see who I want on the laptop? This might be ground breaking. I love instagram but I have to sift through to find people too when I’m on my phone. when they went analytical it ruined the fun I used to have!!
