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 Arbor Day!

Happy Arbor Day! Here’s my latest offering. Okay, so I know it doesn’t exactly relate to Arbor Day, but, after all, owls do live in trees! That’s close enough, right? The bib was knit in Army Tan from Peaches & Crème. I really like this color knitted up. I wasn’t so sure I would, given the name, but it’s not too dark and not too light. Just right!! The cloth is also from Peaches & Crème in gold. I almost always use the P&C since I have so many cones of the yarn. Also, they supply all the pre-packs for the Dishcloth Calendar so I feel it’s only right to support them. Plus, I like it and that’s the most important reason of all!!
The pdfs are in the sidebar, but I’m also posting the patterns for those of you who have trouble with the downloads. Finally, go hug a tree, but first, please leave me a comment! I love hearing from you and also, it lets me know that someone is reading this!! You are reading this, right?

Oh yes, someone's reading it. I still love these bibs. I make them in cotton and acrylics. I fiddle with your patterns to teach myself things. Thank you for all your hard work on these.

I need more baby grandchildren!!
