Baby bibs!!




Some close family friends of ours welcomed into their family, preemie triplets on Easter Day!!! All of them are healthy and home already!! Of course, this just gives me three new wonderful reasons to knit!! It turns out that there are about 35 babies born or to be born this year between family and friends. I am sooooo not drinking the water around here! ;) Since I am trying new knitting projects, I decided not to knit a bunch of baby blanets, but instead bibs. The top photo is the first one I have ever made. Used this pattern Simple Baby Bib Simple Baby Bib. The second one is based on that pattern but instead of knit all rows, it was changed to Row 1:* K1, P1* repeat to the last stitch, K1, Row 2: K across. The last one is of a Pug. The triplets's grandparents have a pug. Maybe I should say, they are owned by a pug and also a minpin. LOL! I used this dishcloth pattern PugPug and added the bib strap to it. I held up the top bib to one of the triplets this past weekend, before the strap was stitched to the bib. The bib was still a little big, but they will grow into them in no time. I'll try to make sure to get a pic of them modeling the bibs this weekend. Happy Knitting!!
