So I want to ease back into knitting. I definitely want to make stuff for the baby but I wanted to start with a small project that I know I can/will finish so that when I really get back into it, I'll have that "I accomplished something" feeling.

So I picked up the needles yesterday CO about 35 stitches with some cheap 'ol walmart brand cotton. I'm going to make a dishcloth. Knit 2 rows, then K2 *p1,k1* K2, next row K all stitches, repeat. I figure simple, quick, slight patternish, good way to ease in.

Then I started thinking, "If I'd made this bigger I could TOTALLY make it into a bib...you know your back when while you're knitting a project you are already 1)thinking of the next one, and 2) making adjustments in your head.

Yep, way to go to get the creative thinking started!

:thumbsup: Bibs are fun and easy! Check Rav for lots of great patterns, too. I just made these from the Mason Dixon book. ;) Info about them in What'cha Knittin' and in Rav.
