It’s My Birthday!

I cannot believe that I am turning 30 today. Holy heck! It’s also been a REALLY LONG time since my last pattern post. But not to fear, I come bearing gifts! I quit my job recently, and have found that I have loads of free time now. I can actually knit and crochet now! Crazy huh? So here’s a little something that I’ve hooked up the last couple days.

Side note: Please please please share your FOs with me! I love to see them!

 When my kid was a little baby, I always called him my little piggy. It seemed like all    he did was eat eat eat! Now that he’s three, he still eats all day and never seems to  gain any weight. Typical kid, I suppose. I hope you enjoy my piggy bib pattern. When  your little one grows up, you can also use it as a table pad for those hot dishes!
