Updated patterns!

I'm in the process of updating my old patterns, particularly the bibs, to include charts. I'm rewriting some of the directions to make the patterns even easier and including alternative methods for beginning the bibs and for making the ties. Look for these patterns in the sidebar to see which ones have been added. It's a slow process, but eventually, they'll all be there!

A Sneak Peek!

I was so thrilled when Janet Nogle asked me to participate in this years Dishcloth Calendar! I never dreamed that she would be interested in any of my little designs, but much to my surprise I have three that are going to be published!! The calendar goes on sale September 5th and there are 35 designs all together. In addition, there are helpful knitting tips, a bonus section, comparison of yarns and lots of good stuff! There are also some raffles so it promises to be lots of fun and a really great addition to your knitting library. (Oh, and there's a calendar too!) You can read more and see some of the patterns by clicking on the button to the right or here .
So, as promised, here is a sneak peek at one of my designs. This is the first bib that I've done specifically for a girl!

It also has a matching washcloth.

If you check the blog for the calendar, you'll see that Janet had already posted a picture of my bib for boys, but here it is again for any of you who might be interested in a second look.

It has a matching washcloth too.

And here it is done in a superwash wool. This shade of green kind of looks like Army trucks, doesn't it? Not my intention, but cute just the same!

Oh yes, I did say that I had three designs, didn't I. Well, if you want to see the last one, you'll just have to wait and buy the calendar, cause it's a surprise!!

OK, if for some reason I did NOT plan on buying the calendar, that truck bib pattern would win me over! I LOVE it! And, one of this year's crop of grandsons is a major drool master, so I'm sure he'll get several! Wonderful job! Thanks for all your work; I can't wait to cast on! Sept 5, here I come!

I also love the truck bibs! That baby hat is adorable, too. In fact, all your stuff is great.

We have this resolved. The pattern is correct as written, you just have to be careful when reading the directions. ;o)
