The Cat’s Bib*

I finally knitted a Mason-Dixon Knitting baby bib. What better model could I have other than Munchkin?


She has the same put-upon expression as in this picture from last year. After she escaped the terrible bib she glared at me in true cat fashion. (I was forgiven when I gave her a couple of treats and a belly rub.)


It’s a cute and quick project. I used one skein of the Bongo cotton left from the Cropped Cardigan. I didn’t want to break into the second skein so I rummaged around and found a bit of leftover dishcloth cotton to finish it; I like this effect.


Pattern: “Baby Bib O’Love” by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne, Mason-Dixon Knitting Size: Baby Yarn: Four Seasons Bongo white, 1 skein and leftover dishcloth cotton Needles: Brittany birch 10-inch US 7 (4.5 mm) single-points Started and completed: April 5, 2007

    LOL! Love the glare! That’s a very cool effect, with the straps a different color.

    Oh, the things we put our poor kitties through. Luckily, they are very forgiving souls :)

    Poor Munchkin. She’s puts up with so much…it’s obvious from the pictures.

    So cute! I’ve made so many of those, once you’ve made one, the variations are endless.

    Is there a blog ring we can join for people who torture their cats by making them model our knitting? Because I do it, too.

    poor kitty. The stare is just hilarious. very cute. Cats are very generous, aren’t they? Just give them rub and snacks, you’re all set.

    I like the color combo. Munchkin looks just a tad bit more patient than Chaos and Mayhem.

    I found your post online somewhere after I made my Mason Dixon bibs. I was inspired to take the same picture:
