Bibbage!

As I was working diligently on the baby set for my cousin, I realized I would be remiss if I didn’t whip up a couple of bibs to include in the package. I went stash-diving and found a couple of colorful cottons.

If you think the cast-on (bottom edge) looks wonky on this bib, you would be correct. I had the bright idea to make a ruffled edge. So, after consulting Stanley’s Knitter’s Handbook, I cast on twice as many needed stitches. But I goofed, and forgot to take into account the proportions of garter stitch. Someday I’ll try casting on thrice the amount needed.

(These colors remind me of Cotton Candy…)

    Those bibs are such great gifts. Just make sure they don’t end up in the dreaded “too nice to use” pile.

    I like the ruffle too – a little something extra to catch the dropping pieces of food!

    Bibs! They’re cute – and they remind me that my cousin just had a baby that probably needs some colorful bibs….

    I have so much of that cotton yarn. I was sick of making dishcloths, so this may be my next project for it. Cute and quick, yay!
