It's a Mashup!
I am knitting a mashup combining this:
(pattern found here)
and the famous "baby bib o' love" from this book by the Mason-Dixon ladies.
It's for my internist, who is becoming a grandmother for the first time this summer. I was going to knit booties, but I thought a bib might have more lasting usefulness. One size fits all, and all that. I still haven't decided if I will do the traditional "Mason-Dixon" style button closure or crank out some i-cord ties (if I can force that dishcloth cotton through the machine). I sense another living-on-the-edge experiment coming on.
