Little Duckie Bibs

I thought this was such an adorable pattern, from Crochet World Magazine, April 2004, Volume 27 No. 2, Pages 20-21.

It is made using 4 ply Cotton yarn. I used both Peaches & Creme and Lily's. The pattern called for the two yellows, and when I was done I wasn't sure, so I tried another one in the traditional yellow and orange.
Very easy pattern.

Traveling with your Crochet & Knitting Projects

I have found it is best to travel with a small amount of yarn.

That way you can plan your stops by scanning for nearby Hobby Lobbys or Michaels....

This one just happens to be in Amarillo, Texas and would you know after a break in the drive shopping for yarn sales,

right across the street is a super bakery, with the best sandwiches. The rye bread for the ruebens is a work of art.
We have never been stopped and checked at state lines for bringing 4 ply yarn across.

Of course I usually carry a DQ blizzard just in case. This is a luscious, choco-cherry one that was their Valentines Day Special.
