It is time for an itty bitty hat

Good Morning. What a glorious day in Michigan. It is sunny and almost 70 degrees, heading to 80. One baby sleeping, 2 little girls playing outside, 3 birds fed and napping, 4 dogs exploring the new pile of dirt, and a happy grammie getting ready to start Project #7.

Did I ever mention how many projects are in the itty bitty books? Itty bitty hats has 36 projects, itty bitty nursery has 24 projects, and ittybitty toys has 26 projects. Total=86. Some projects actually have multiple parts, but I am still counting those as one project. Example: the Cupcake Tea Set, in "itty bitty nursery", has 22 PIECES to it. As usual, I am blown away by Susan Anderson's designs and her eye for detail.

I have been trying to decide what to knit next. I had such fun making the Egg to Bluebird and a Little Nest, Too. I gave it to Neve for her 2nd birthday. I really need to make another for me. My grandchildren love to play with the reversible toys. I bought the yarn to make the Lion and Elephant, but, I am thinking it is time for an itty bitty hat. I haven't made anything from the "itty bitty hat" book, yet. So......drum roll, please......Project #7, Rosebud, from the "itty bitty hat" book, page 78. I am going to make the wreath version. I love the colors of the flowers.

So, tonight I weigh in at Weight Watchers. Lets hope I lost the 1.2 pounds I gained last week. I made sure I drank water this week and not diet pop. I always stay within my points, so, I am keeping my fingers crossed.

A hat! Good selection. I really enjoy making hats. They are so fun to watch form as you knit.

Best wishes at your weigh in tonight!
