I LOVE it! The petal bib is complete and I am thrilled.
Just about 48 hours after I started it, the bib was done. Definitely the fastest knit I have ever done (with the possible exception of a scarf of giant yarn on enormous needles). Considering that this was at times a difficult project for me (several new techniques involved that I had to figure out) I am enormously pleased with the result.
Here are the details: Petal Bib from Oneskein by Leigh Radford. The yarn was Rowan handknit Cotton in #203 Fruit Salad. Knit on US #6 Crystal Palace bamboo straights and Prym metal dpns. BTW, I really liked the metal dpns. I have previously used bamboo dpns and I found the metal ones had a better feel, for me any way (and they were darn cheap, too).
One last thing, this was my first experience with i-cord and can I just say how clever it is? Maybe I'm easily amused but the way it came together and then attached itself to the bib was so cool.
So now it's back to the WIPs, I think I hear the Albatross whispering in my ear. Oh, no, that's just my daughter waking up from her nap. Perfect timing.
