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!

An Oldie

For those of you who read this blog (does anyone actually read it?), you might remember the Trucking Along bib that I did for the 2009 Dishcloth Calendar. The design has been released back to me and so I thought I would post it. This was definitely designed for the boys, but then again, who's to say that a girl can't play with trucks too?

This green bib was done with Cascade 220 Superwash wool and I used U.S. 4 needles. By using the thinner yarn and smaller needles, the bib is smaller. A perfect size to capture all that lovely drool!

Have you checked out the new online magazine yet? It's Petite Purls and it's devoted to infants, toddlers and children. It's like Knitty only for kids! The editors contacted me about submitting a design, but unfortunately, I can't make the next deadline, as I'm off to Rhode Island for a week to help my son after his upcoming surgery.

When I get back, I'll also post the directions for the bib I designed for the girls for last year's calendar. In the meantime, I hope the rain here in New England will finally end and we'll have some nice weather for a change. It's been raining so much, I now have mushrooms growing in my window boxes!!

That looks great! I really like that green.

I think the links to the patterns are broken though. They should probably be

HI Elaine,

Of course I am still reading your blog. I just downloaded the Trucking bib/cloth set. I knit the cloth in Peacock (Turquoise) and the bib in Lt Green. Johnny loves them.

I bet there is a lot of us out here who read your blog but don't post much. So, I'm just delurking to let you know I'm here and I love your cloths & bibs! Thanks for the wonderful patterns.

Just wanted to say that I love your bib patterns! Your designs are charming! I'm doing the "green" peace one right now and have enjoyed passing it on to friends. Dare I say I am an activist/educator working in a developing country, and have enjoyed giving a baby gift that packs a little more meaning into life :) Thank you for all that you do on the creative front!
