Bib for Baby Liam

Last week I saw a knitting pattern online for a baby's bib. It's knitted in garter stitch (all plain rows) and can be completed in two hours. I had yarn and needles and started immediately. 

I knitted 3 cm and then became involved in computer work. Rina sat in the sun near me and shortly she asked if she could continue knitting the bib. I said yes, and within an hour and a half, she'd finished the article! With a button hole on one side of the neck strap and the button on the other, the bib was ready to be worn. 

We walked over to Amanda who was in the nursery; Liam had just woken up from his afternoon nap. 
Darling Liam just awoken, but interested in what three women were up to! 
How do I look? 
I was interested to see that the yarn had been dyed and balled by women from an economically depressed rural area in South Africa

  1. Baby Liam looks so so cute in the bib! :)

  2. Now Jo What will you be up to next? I wonder how itwill wash?

  3. He doesn't look that impressed. The label on the wool is interesting.

  4. Hello Jo, what a pretty bib for baby Liam! he looks adorable wearing it too. It is great that the sale of the yarn helps this community! Great shots, enjoy your day!

  5. Liam is precious. He looks good in his new bib.

  6. You do have some nice yarns in SA, I've bought mohair and silk also made by women in areas to increase economic benefits. Sadly, I've made nothing from them yet. Love the bib.
