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 nice....like 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!
