I know at least 6 pregnant women, 3 of them being my family. So, I have been baby hat knitting. Both successfully, and unsuccessfully.

Inca Snowflake Hat from Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson. Mine will not be having snowflakes. I tried, but it was a miserable attempt. I will be adding the tassels, though. As soon as I get into a pom making kind of mood. My picture is sort of dark… but you can get the main idea of it. Then I started the Marshmallow Bonnet in pink. And it was going great until I tried to mattress stitch the seams. It sucked, I couldn’t figure out what was going on. I quite possibly have ruined this hat with the seams. I won’t even show you, it’s so embarrassing. I did decide to finish it anyway, just to understand the assembly of the piece if nothing else. It looks great as long as you don’t look at the backside. I had a birthday last week. It was great. My husband took me out to a great dinner. When I got in the car, there was a big pink bag with a card and some Knit Picks Options knitting needles inside! The card was lovely, and it was fitting. It had a woman sitting on a paint can drinking coffee, looking up at her husband on a ladder painting the wall (a heart on the wall).And speaking of our home restoration….

We cut down some trees around our driveway (the first picture view is as you are leaving our drive. The trees were past the flowers…). We also had some really bad overgrown stuff taken out and the stumps are going to be removed soon.


Also, we moved our bedroom downstairs because we have no air conditioning. And it’s hot here, and only going to get more toasty as the summer progresses. One night, it was particularly hot.. and I woke up with a massive migraine. So, that day my husband put in a window air conditioner downstairs in a room that is a little cooler naturally and moved our bed down.

Well, off to watch Heroes. (I finally caught back up by watching them on the internet!)
