Birthday Bib for Ben

Hmmm, looks like I have a sunny gold carpet, doesn't it? The shade is actually supposed to be a light beige. The color of the bib is pretty close. I took this shot tonight, sunlight would have been better. I know a little about fixing photos in Elements, but I need to learn more. I have taken some great tutorial classes at Jessicasprague.com. I would recommend them highly. They are mostly geared to digital scrapbooking, which I don't do, but most all tutorials have good information for other digital crafts. Anyway, the bib is for youngest grandson, Benjamin, who turns one this weekend. I thought I would knit a quick little bib for him, and I found this one at

http://downcloverlaine.blogspot.com/2009/10/cupcake.html. It knit up quite quickly, and I think it is pretty cute. A hint was given that some little mittens might be a good gift, so I will see if I can find something easy and try a pair. Do babies need a thumb or is just a little knit pouch a better idea? How in the world would I do a tiny thumb, anyway? I think I have a Polar Fleece mitten pattern for babies in a book somewhere. Maybe that would be a better idea. The weather around here has been pretty nice, so far no hand coverings are needed. Be assured....the winter is coming. Jerilynn
