I put together this little set for a new mom who I don't know well enough to knit a sweater or a blanket, but I wanted to knit her something that was cute and useful. Mason Dixon to the rescue!



I made three bibs, which I adapted from the Mason Dixon Knitting pattern to have rounded edges instead of the square ones in the book.



There is also a baby genius burp cloth in there and a board book that just happened to have matching colors. I used Sugar & Cream for everything.

Thanks for looking!

Wow those are fantastic! I like how you used buttons as fasteners. Most bibs come with velcro and tend to scratch up baby's neck. A very thoughtful gift :-)

Everything looks great! Sugar and Cream totally rules for baby knitting.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.


The northern downpour sends its love.

What a great set! Anything machine washable is a great choice. I really like the colors you chose for the 3 bibs.

Wow, those look terrific! You did an excellent job.  Smiley
Everything is colour coordinated to boot.
The new Mom should be very pleased, with your thoughtful gift.
I have these patterns, but I prefer the way you rounded the edges on the bibs.
Mind if I ask how you adjusted the pattern, for the rounded edging?
I think it looks much nicer than the square edging, in the pattern.
Thanks, and happy knitting!
