FO: Bib for a new little girl
Thanks to Mason-Dixon knitting, I have a bib all ready for the imminent arrival of my nephew's new baby (due tomorrow!). It's made of Frog Tree Picoboo which is lovely and soft to the touch.
I took the advice of a brilliant person on this blog and used the Fibonacci sequence to determine the number of rows per stripe (1, 1, 2, 3, 5 and then back down). The mom's a math teacher so she'll really appreciate that. Not to mention the fact that I like the way it looks.
I tried a not entirely successful experiment with the edges. In previous bibs, I didn't like the way the color change bled up a row every time, so for this bib I cast on and knitted one edge with both colors of yarn. Then I whip-stitched the other edge with both colors of yarn when I was done. It looks okay but not great (probably a function of the fact that I'm a lousy whip-stitcher). Anyone have a better suggestion for that particular problem? I'm all ears!
P.S. I finished the Boundless Blue Blanket at last! Wahoo! Photos to follow.
