A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to attend Creativation in Phoenix. There, I was able to see of the new yarns hitting the shelves and although I had had the opportunity to try Red Heart Chic Sheep before the event, I had not seen all the beautiful colors in the line. Wow! If you haven’t seen this yarn, run and get some, it is truly dreamy! So soft and squishy!
Here is the second baby bib that I made for my little Eowyn. This one is ever easier than the Bandana Bib, no decreases at all, simply knit in the round, then knit flat until you reach the desired length. I put in some garter at the end to stop the item from curling.
A little bit of yarn, a little bit of time, and you get a tiny little present for a loved baby.
