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!

Happy (Belated) birthday!! I just dropped by to see your latest bib designs - little did I know there would be a birthday girl on board!! So..are you over this "old" thing? 60 is the new 40...isn't that what they say? I am only 2 years behind you, and I plan no remorse when I get there. Celebrate those discounts!!! leaves you more money for yarn! LOL. Speaking of, love the kids Regia yarns. Do you have a good source for those? or are you buying them locally? Not sure I know where I can find them, but might pick up some fun ones to knit for my BG. 50gm skeins? I hope.

This was the perfect "Non-Caloric" birthday gift I could give to my sister, Mellisa. She absolutely loved it. Thank you so much for sharing this and your other beautiful patterns. SD Miracle

I probably used about 2/3 of a ball. I can almost get two cloths out of one ball of Peaches & Creme which has 122 yarns total. Hope this helps.

This was just entirely too cute! Had fun making it. I WILL be making more of your designs. (This is my second one. The hippo -- OMG -- I couldn't even give that one away!)

Wondering if I am reading rows 7 & 8 wrong. I can't seem to get each of these rows to match up to 37 stitches. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

Do you have a revised pattern for the cupcake? It says to co 37 stitches but most rows call for 38.
