For Baby Douglas

I am finally learning how to use my blog press app on my iPad. Yippee, this is easier than expected! The photo above showcases the bib and bow tie l crocheted for my cousin's baby. (He arrived safely all plump and sweet this past Monday). The bib was made out of a full cotton but was very soft. Wish l still had the label. I would buy it again for sure. Have the feeling it was from a clearance bin which sometimes makes the labels hard to read anyway. The most tedious part of this little project was sewing the bow tie on without allowing it to skew crooked. Even pinning it in place, l still had a bit of a tricky time with it.

As you can see, l am still a bit new to this whole iPad thing. This is the only picture l took before shipping the cocoon to my cousin, so here it is in all it's screenshot-style glory...haha. I went for a more modern feel with this cocoon. Wasn't sure l liked it at first but, in retrospect, am really pleased l did it this way. That is one of the amazing things about the art of crochet. Even using the same pattern over and again, the end product can still look dramatically different just depending on the yarn texture, color scheme, and hook size used.
I rather think blogpress makes this all a mite too easy. I am liable to blather on about nothing all night. Better stop myself now. A pile of fluffy pillows is calling my name. Best be wise and heed their beckoning.
Goodnight, all! Sweet dreams!

  5. Hi there,
    What cute baby makes! And congratulations to your cousin.
    How are you feeling now? I hope you're on the mend.
    Happy weekend!

  6. Hmmm . . . I haven't heard about an ipad blogpress app. I am going to have to check it out! I tried to post on mine a year ago but wasn't able to add photos. An app should make that possible now, right? Your baby gifts are cute!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  7. Very sweet gift set. I love the bow tie!!
