Thanks for the input everybody. Can you tell I'm going to be a totally inept grandmother (my sweet stepdaughter is having the baby, s o I have no baby experience)!! Maybe a simple bib would be better since most of you use a diaper or something for burping. Anyone know where I can find a pattern for one of those? I'm not too good at just practicing, so I have to be "making" something and I really need the practice on this yarn before starting the blanket. Thanks again for all your help.
BTW, how do I get one of these cute icons to post on my replies. I want to send you all the smilie blowing kisses, but haven't figured out how to do it. Okay, so I'm inept at that too :)))
