So I had this idea for a bib and it looked so cute on paper, but when I knitted it up, it kind of lost something. I'm not sure that the border is firm enough to keep the edges from rolling up. I haven't decided whether or not I should write up the pattern or if I should go back to the drawing board, or if I should just toss it into the pile of rejects. What do you think?
On another note, I've been working on some more baby leggings. I think this is the greatest idea for keeping little legs warm, especially during diaper changes. This is the pattern by Alana Dakos called Legwarmies. http://nevernotknitting.blogspot.com/2008/01/legwarmies.html I modified it by not changing to stockinette and just ribbed the whole leg. Since little Marty is only two months old, he needs a little "cling" to keep them on his legs. It was pretty mindless knitting, but I loved the yarn so at least I could look forward to the colors changing to keep me interested. The yarn is Regia Ringel Color 5048.
Here is another pair that I'm working on. This time I'm sticking to the pattern (rare for me) and I'm using Knit Picks Felici in very manly browns! This yarn is so soft. The only thing that's bugging me is that there are little flecks of gray throughout the light tan sections. It looks like I was eating something when I was knitting and spattered it on the yarn. The colorway, Pebble, has been discontinued, maybe that's why! I'm thinking that with the left over yarn, I should make a third leg, so when one gets lost in the laundry, there will be a backup!
I'm also working on converting some of the bib patterns into dishcloths or washcloths. A bib and a matching washcloth would make cute baby gifts tucked into a basket with other goodies, don't you think?
