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 Birthday...or not

Today is my birthday. I’ve been dreading it for quite awhile now. Usually, birthdays don’t particularly bother me, but now I’m 60. 60? How can that be? What is it about hitting a new decade that is so disturbing ? Sigh, I just can’t believe I’m that old. Most days, I don’t even feel old. It’s just that now, I qualify for all those senior discounts at restaurants and fairs and stores and I have to admit that I am, in fact, a senior citizen. I’d like to just stay in bed with the covers over my head, but then I wouldn’t get any presents, and I do like presents, although I enjoy giving them, more than receiving them. Here then is a present for you. Perhaps you know of a little one that might be celebrating a special day.

This bib is a little longer than most of my bibs, but not much, maybe an inch or so. I'm also happy to report that, thanks to Alli and Kathy, it's been test knitted, so hopefully, I won't have to post a corrected version tomorrow! The pdf for the bib and a matching cloth are in the sidebar.

I hope that if you do make this one, the recipient thoroughly enjoys his/her day, because, before you know it, one day they too will be 60!
