I just finished these bibs which will be baby gifts in the new year. Guess I just made the deadline as 2006 is ending soon!
These were really fun and very easy. The pattern is from the the Mason-Dixon Knitting book by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. I was tempted to try one of the fancy stitch patterns from my new Barbara Walker's Treasury but decided against it. These are bibs...no need to be fancy. Hopefully they will have lots of food and drool stuck on them. I want them to be used, not put away in a drawer. I know if someone had given me elaborate knitted items for my boys I probably would be afraid to use them. I think these will be used. I wish I had had some for my boys when they were babies. I probably would have had dozen of them!
Well, I hope this finds everyone happily waiting for the new year to begin. I know I am looking forward to order being restored in my household tomorrow when we take down the tree and all the rest of the decorations.
May everyone have a very happy and healthy new year!
happy knitting in 2007 :)
