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!

Billy the Kid and more!

I was looking on Ravelry the other day at my "designer" page and discovered that I have 70 designs posted there.  Technically, as far as designs go, there is half that many as the bib and the cloth are counted as separate patterns, as they should be.  Out of all those patterns, not one has ever had a chart, until now!!  This time I've included the chart with the pattern for all of you who have asked for them.  I had a crash course in charting (courtesy of my son) and you'll see I'm not very good at it.  Still, it's there and a giant step forward for me! 
Last year when I was working on designs for the 2011 calendar, I was on a country theme and this one was in the running, but lost out to the cow, the horse and the sheep!  I went around to everyone I knew and asked them to vote on which ones should be included in the calendar and, on some lists, the goat was number one.  It's not really one of your mainstream farm animals, I guess. 
One more word about the charts.  They're only included with the pdf files.  I haven't figured out how to get them pasted here.  Sorry! 

Thank you, thank you to all my test knitters for your patience in waiting for me to get this posted.  All of my testers are sworn to secrecy and they promise not to post pictures until I publish a pattern.  I'm very fortunate to have their loyalty.  Some of them have been waiting a long time to see this one, so I want to especially thank them for keeping their promises!!

Aw, so cute!

You mentioned a sheep and a horse, but I haven't seen these patterns. Are they yours and available?

I just discovered your patterns on Ravelry and must say they make me smile. So cute and cheerful!

I can't wait to make one.

Thanks for sharing,
