As many of your know, I am expecting my first grandchild in early December. It’s to be a boy, and I’ve been knitting for the baby. I made some baby socks, and now I’ve finished a baby hat and a baby bib. I’ve got countless baby blankets on needles and sweaters waiting in the wings to cast on!
The first is this Top This Hat that is sold as a kit. I purchased mine at Knit2gether in Silverdale, Washington. You get the pattern, yarn and topper. It was easy and fast, and the yarn is delicious. I wasn’t crazy how the topper is applied, and it’s shown me how much of a perfectionist I am.
The second is this Grammy’s Bib. This gal is on Ravelry, and she has designed all these bibs. Her name is Elaine Fitzpatrick. I was wanting to knit with some red. white & blue yarn over the 4th of July holiday, and purchased this Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn at Michaels. I was just thinking drool bib. I did buy some more high end cotton yarn thinking I would knit up a bunch of these. But alas I’m reminded how slow a knitter I am. I’m going to move on to the finish line with one of my many blankets on needles, and then most likely cast on a sweater.
