ruffle bib

Ruffle bib for baby M


Pattern: from Mason Dixon KnittingModifications: I put ruffles on the bottom (cast on 3x the required stitches then R1: K, R2: K2tog every stitch, R3: K, R4: K2tog, K1 to end, R4: start written pattern) and at the ends of the straps (R1: KFB every stitch, R2: K, R3: KFB every stitch, R4: K, Cast off).

Yarn: Sugar and Cream

Needles: Size 8 straight

What I like: I like this pattern. It was my second in a row and is a super quick knit. I like the way the ruffle turned out.

What I would change: Nothing, I like this!


log cabin Log Cabin thing for Mom


Pattern: modified from Mason Dixon KnittingModifications: I used the basic log cabin but scaled it down to about 1/3 the size

Yarn: Sugar and Cream

Needles: Size 8 straight

log cabin backWhat I like: This was fun, and quick, to knit. All the turns kept me interested!

What I would change: Because I didn’t like the back I knitted a plain back and whip stitched them together. I think for my next log cabin experience I will slip a stitch at the beginning of each row so there is a nicer edge from which to pick up stitches.


Jill's MD WarshragM-D Warshrag for Jill


Pattern: from Mason Dixon KnittingModifications: only thing was I knit it all on double points instead of a circular

Yarn: Sugar and Cream

Needles: Size 8 double points

What I like: I like this pattern. I like that the rounds get smaller and smaller! and I learned how to make bobbles. I will certainly make more.

What I would change: I would use a short circular at the beginning, the stitches kept falling off the double points.


fuzz feet toesFuzzy Feet for C and M


Pattern: from KnittyModifications: none really, I followed their directions to make one pair larger… and I had fun with the color changes

Yarn: Lamb’s Pride worsted

Needles: Size 10.4 double points and circular

What I like: Well, even after making four of these I wasn’t annoyed so that’s something. There is a perfect balance of thinking and mindless knitting! Also the look on C’s face when she opened them at the shower made it all worth while!

What I would change: Nothing, it’s good and I even got them done ahead of time!


Marni's BoxBirthday Box for Marni


Pattern: from Mason Dixon KnittingModifications: I made stripes
Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Bulky

Needles: Sz 15

What I like: It was quick to knit… and the recipient says it’s the perfect size for CDs

What I would change: I’m not sure about these boxes. I like the idea, but wasn’t all that excited about how this turned out. I guess I should try a solid color one and see if I like that better. Also, on this small size the handle holes felt down so small they aren’t useful.

  1. I love the ruffles! One of my friends is with child & she doesn’t know yet boy or girl but I so want to make a ruffly bib now – I’m praying it’s a girl. 🙂
