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!

I thought maybe it was time to get re-acquainted with this blog. Knitting hasn't been at the top of my priorities lately. My daughter-in-law was recently diagnosed with cancer and I've been trying to help out where I can. I'm afraid that I haven't even had a pair of knitting needles in my hands for the past couple of weeks. I guess I thought it would be more productive to just worry! It seems to have worked though, because things are looking much better now! I want to thank you all for your nice messages and prayers. I've discovered who my real friends are.

Before life got so crazy, I did knit up the cloth for the frog to match the bib I posted last time. As with the bib, this cloth isn't in the pdf files yet. I'm still waiting for my website to get up and running. Even with the new website, you'll still be able to just access it from here. I'm waiting for my son to get back from vacation when he promises he'll help me! I'm starting to have a backlog of patterns that need to get posted! ;o)

I do want to mention that if you send me an email, be sure to put something in the subject line like "bibs" or "blog", so I know that it's not spam. I have received a couple of messages from people without any identifying information and if I don't know you, or don't have any information why you're contacting me, then I don't open it.

On a parting note, here's what we woke up to this morning. The apartment house across the street had some uninvited guests for breakfast. This is what happens when you get drunk the night before, pass out, and forget to turn off your oven and stove.

Oy! Another good reason to not be much of a drinker! I hope I never have to see those unexpected guests at my house! Hubby is a newspaper photographer and once heard on the police scanner that there was a fire or accident, so he ran out the door to get pictures. He almost burned down his house, because he forgot to turn the oven off and he was making a pizza! He got home in time, though. Phew. (That's when he was single!) His apartment just got smoky.
