Motorcycle Baby Bib

As promised, a baby item.  I made this motorcycle baby bib for a grandson that's due in Jan.

Motorcycle with seed stitch border.

The true blue color.

Motorcycle - Close-Up.
The motorcycle bib pattern was designed by  Lisa & Alli of Kwits Heaven.

I used a DK weight cotton that called for size (US) 4 needles, but I used size (US) 2, so that the bib would be dense and the design of the motorcycle would be more defined.

I also modified the pattern a bit, but kept true to the original design of the motorcycle.  I wanted a buttonhole neckline instead of ties that are either i-Cord or crocheted.

I can't wait to gift this to my son and his wife for their new baby.  My son and his wife's brothers are motorcycle enthusiasts.

A big shout out to Lisa & Alli!  This was exactly what I had in mind for a motorcycle bib and thanks for helping me out so quickly and being so patient with me and all of my questions.

Be sure to visit their web site for some really beautiful and unique patterns.

Photos of the Shawls for Little Girl

A while back a friend from church had asked me to knit a shawl for her young daughter.  The young lady wanted a shawl, but couldn't find one that fit properly.  So, I set about looking for a pattern and the right cotton yarn.

I posted about the Wave Shawl here:

And, here's the beautiful young lady wearing the shawls.  I made 2 types of shawls, The Wave  is a triangle shaped shawl.

The other shawl, Little Leaves Lace Wrap,  is rectangular in shape like a scarf.

I love how these knitted up and this little lady looks so chic and ready for any occasion.

Next Up:  Baby items, of course.
