It's the little things...

It's the little things in life that make life worthwhile, right? Right. Little things can bring great joy, like a baby sweater and hat for no particular reason, especially if there are owls on the sweater...

...and owls on the hat...

Yes, a little sweater and matching hat bring this knitter great joy, especially if they have been cabled with a trendy owl motif or two!

Little knitting always makes me happy. Just like anyone, I do enjoy the occasional bulky afghan or adult-sized sweater, but mostly I think I love the little knitting. That's the only explanation I have for knitting a second hitchhiker, with tiny lace stitches, currently on my needles:

This pool of lace-weight knitting just makes me happy to look at! As a bonus, the yarn is my own handspun, and a double bonus is that this project is past the half-way point, which is good...because I have been looking for my size 3 needles for a week, for a new project. Guess where my size three needles are? Bing!Bing!Bing! You got my hitchhiker! lolz! I'm doing my level best to get that finished now, so I can cast on another pair of endpaper mitts...those were a fun little knit!

So that's it, in a nutshell, for me. I'm knitting little things, and I am enjoying it very much, thank you! What are you knitting this summer? Big things? Little things? Or maybe things that are "just right"? I'd love to hear about it in your comments! :)

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!

    Just to let you know what I was thinking as I read down. Very nice!

  2. Your hitchhiker is so pretty! What gorgeous colors. And the owl set is ADORABLE!!

  3. I love cabled owls. What a sweet sweater and hat!
