Summer knitting.

I have been on a baby bib and dishcloth binge.

Bib 2

Bibs 1

Bib in progress

Yarn: Lily Sugar 'n' Creme and probably some Peaches 'n' Creme, too.
Needle: Addi US#7.
Pattern: The ever popular Baby Bib o' Love from Mason & Dixon. I modified it so the neck strap is long enough to button in front. A knittng friend came up with that because she thought it was probably easier to put it on a toddler this way. Good thinking.

I used up odds and ends of SnC to make some dishcloths for my kitchen (no photos), then started to get a bit creative. I sent these four as a housewarming gift to a blogging friend who moved recently.

She featured them on her blog.

Dishcloths

My cotton knitting may be coming to a close, however. The coarse yarn eventually makes a groove in my left index finger that gets irritated. Another bib or two, then I'll have enough in case of a baby emergency.

    I particularly love the rainbow one. It’s VERY pretty. I’m working on a version of the Chili Pepper Red Dishtowel http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chili-pepper-red-kitchen-towel . This is my fourth!
