Fibers on Friday: How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food?

Hopefully while wearing an adorable little bib like this! (Pattern by Elaine Fitzpatrick)

I made this bib for a friend who is expecting a little one in December. She lives far away from me, but she holds a special place in my heart because she threw me an amazing baby shower when I was expecting my twins. I have not knit a baby gift for 3 years, but she deserves a special handmade gift, so I took the plunge.

I used Cotton Ease for this. I hope it is the right choice! It feels great. It looks great. I just hope it holds up to washing and being spit up on! I also hope it doesn't take too much effort on the part of the mom to keep it looking laying flat to dry, etc. These are things I didn't really consider until I was knee deep in knitting it....oooops.

And next up on my needles is a little hat for one of my kids. I'm just going to do another simple ribbed brim hat for her. This yarn is called Wrapunzel by Knit One Crochet Too. I visited my favorite yarn store yesterday and came home with this and some Cascade Eco Wool for my next sweater....the Shalom!


  1. Very cute. I hope one day I'll be receiving one of these in the mail too.... I can wish can't I?

    Hey.... do you think you could knit a giraffe? I've got a friend who is due in January with a little girl and her theme is giraffes. Let me know. I could buy the yarn and mail it to you....

  2. For Amy & Beth - I have a pattern book at home with a giraffe pattern in it. I could scan and send it to you if you wanted Beth. Just let me know!


  3. Ha ha ha! What an adorable bib! It makes me giggle!! Tiny dino--how cute is that?!!

    You are amazingly talented.

  4. Oh that is so cute! I just love it.

    Some friends of mine are expecting and I'm really enjoying making lots of baby stuff for them (it helps that they both adore hand knit goodies).

    The Wrapunzel is beautiful too - such amazing colours!

    I'm hoping to do a bit of a photoshoot tomorrow to get a link-y up in your party!

  5. I'm sure your friend will appreciate the effort went into her gift. The bib is just darling and I'm sure she'll see how much love was put into it.

    Thanks for reminding me about your party. I didn't include the url in the post because changing the post usually messes the formatting up for me. However, I did link to to my blog parties page so everyone can see it. Hopefully that will spread the word around for you. :)

    Happy Saturday!

  6. What a cute the dino! I knitted bibs for my son when he was a baby and they held up better than the store bought ones, so no worries. Cotton-ease is also pretty durable. Can't wait to see the progress on your Shalom. This has been in my queue for a while. I even bought some Cascade Eco wool for it, too. I love the modified versions on ravelry with long sleeves.

  7. Thanks for coming by Moose in Toque. I love perusing the blogs that link up here, even if I don't join in very often. Love all the inspiration!

  8. That is awesome! I would love for you to come link up at our Strut Your Stuff Party!


What's on your mind, friend?
