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!

One More.

Here is the last design that I did for the 2010 Dishcloth Calendar. I meant to post it earlier, but unfortunately, my mom had a possible heart attack this past week and, needless to say, I've been busy travelling to and from the hospital. She seems to be fine, but is facing a battery of tests to get to the exact cause. She's strong and has some wonderful doctors, so I'm sure we'll have a positive outcome. Anyway, this guy is actually the first pattern that I did, but I wasn't sure I was going to include him. In the end, I decided that he really does fit in well with the other two designs.

I had a hard time coming up with a name, so I just call it "Puppy Love". When he's done in red, or in this case, persimmon, I think he kind of resembles Clifford the Big Red Dog, although that wasn't my intention!

It's difficult to come up with a dog design that will appeal to most dog lovers, as they usually have a favorite or specific breed. Someone has to stand up for the mutts though, and hopefully, this guy will suffice.
