Accomplishments of the Week - May 19, 2018
With two young kids at home, it often feels like I run around all week and never get anything done. So... this is my effort to reflect on the week and celebrate successes both large and small, knitting-related or not.
I made good progress on my Meandering Pathway Shawl (shown above). I love that the rows are getting shorter rather than longer so it feels like I'm knitting faster the further into it I get.
I taught a geography lesson on Hungary to a group of young homeschoolers and showed off some of my Hungarian/Transylvanian textiles. The colouring sheets based on traditional Kalocsai embroidery patterns were a hit!
I grafted the toe and blocked my Wayfaring Stranger sock. My quick phone photos don't do this colour justice I'm afraid. It's the Tree Frog colourway of our Pizzicato yarn and I love it so much that I knit THREE socks with one skein. The first two got donated to Dans La Rue during our Socktober KAL and this singleton will get added to our sample box to bring to festivals and trunk shows.
Not knitting or yarn related, but we booked our plane tickets and accommodation for Hong Kong!!! I've been dreaming about this trip since Christmas and the whole family is so excited that it's turning into reality.
What did you accomplish this week? Feel free to share in the comments below. We love to hear from you!

This year we're celebrating Sweet Paprika's 15th anniversary, and it's honestly been a bit hard to get my head around where the time has gone! We've been looking back through some of our old photos, and thought it would be fun to share a little retrospective here. Our little business has come a long way in the past 15 years!
Most of the images I'm including are not our polished product photos (although those have also come a long way since the early days), but more of a behind-the-scenes look at some of the memorable stepping stones along our journey.
