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!

It's Over!

I survived the first KAL, but I am a little relieved that it's over. Things didn't go quite as smoothly as I had hoped. Once again, my computer was attacked by a virus on the second day. Fortunately, it hit after I posted the directions for that day, but I was one stressed out wreck all day. The last time this happened, my son installed some protection program that did its work. It only took him three hours to get me back up and running again!

I received lots and lots of nice emails from group members, which boosted my spirits considerably. I only had one (so far) negative response. That's pretty good for a group with over 7,800 members! I knew going into this that you can't please everyone!

In any event, here is the cloth for August. It's my Baby Starfish. I've posted both the bib and the cloth. If you want a pdf, you'll have to be patient because my webspace is filled. I'm still working on getting another site to host the patterns. It should be ready by next week. In the meantime, you can just cut and paste if you can't wait.

I hope you'll like this one. It just reminds me of the beach and fun summers along the coast of Maine and Cape Cod.

I agreed to host two more Kals this year and I thought I would have some time to regroup, but I just checked and realized that I'm scheduled to do next month's too!! Yikes! Everyone will be sick of me by the end of the year!
