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!

Is it Spring yet?

Yay! I'm back online! My son was able to rescue my computer and all my patterns and pictures! I knew that college would pay off some day! I don't know exactly what he did and even if he told me, I wouldn't understand it. All I know is that I'm back....and yes, all of my documents are backed up on my external drive!! Thank you for all the prayers!

I designed this fella last year and had every intention to post him then, but time slipped away, so I decided to just wait and do it this year. Unfortunately, I didn't know my computer would crash. Still, I like to think this is more of a Springtime rabbit.

I remember that he was test knit last year (thanks Sue!), but when I looked at him again, I decided that I didn't like his paws so I redid them. Then after I knit both a bib and a cloth, I decided that I didn't like his face, so I redid that as well! I can tell you that he also looks good in both baby pink and baby green!

The pictures aren't as nice as I'd like them to be. If you've been following the weather here in New England, you know that we've been having torrential rain. Fortunately, we're okay, but in Rhode Island, where my son lives, it's just been disastrous! Historic floods. The weatherman promised that the sun would shine today, but apparently he needs to take another look at his weather charts. It's pretty cloudy and not good for taking pictures. Still, I didn't want to wait another day. Oh, and don't forget that the pdfs for both patterns are in the sidebar.

I just realized that tomorrow is the anniversary of this blog. Wow, two years. Maybe I should start a tradition and post a new pattern every year!

Hooray! I didn't say so, but I was cautiously hopeful that you'd get your data back. It's a long way from a computer that doesn't work to a computer with unsalvageable data.

Great looking rabbit!

HI Elaine,
Thank God and of course your son for fixing and rescueing the patterns.

You're welcome for the test knitting of bunny bib. I enjoyed doing it. It's really cute. I'll have to download the new one under a Hippity Hop #2.

This is the perfect time for the Bunny pattern.

CONGRADS on two yrs for the blog.
Em's and my second anniversary is Monday.
