Hope's Bright Ass Cabled Bib

Needles: Addi size 6

Yarn: Rowan Handknit DK Cotton 1 skein (I think I only used half)


Hope is going to be the cutest, BRIGHTEST, little thing with her new bib.

There are some patterns you see and want to make, but do not need it at that time. Well this pattern was one of them. I seen it a while ago and always wanted to make it, but had no reason to.....until now.

I always order an extra skein when I knit projects for other's. I had this Rowan because I knit my KnittingHelp Summer Swap partner a bright orange (her request) spa set last summer. So since I had the yarn the pattern called for, I got to work. The only problem was the brightness, but I figure she is a baby and she is fierce, so she will be able to MAKE IT WORK!! Now, I just need to find some cute buttons.

What did I learn you ask? I learned how to do a Provisional Cast On (THANK YOU KNITTINGHELP!@!!). Everything else was knit, purl, cable, a button hole and shaping.

Awww, that is so cute! It will be even cuter on a wee little babe. Hubby has two co-workers that are expecting and now I know what knitted gift they will be getting. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love (I learned provisional cast on there as well!)

Baby fierceness!! :o)

And you are good in always ordering an extra ball of yarn! I am always like what is the "exact" amount I need?? And get mad when I have "too much" leftover. But I rather have extra than not enough! ;o)

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday gurl!
