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!

Lucky Me!

I have been so fortunate to meet some really lovely people both through my blog and through Ravelry.  One of them is my pal, Christi, from Texas.  A couple of weeks ago, I was surprised to get a package in the mail from her.  I just couldn't imagine what she could be sending me.
Look at this gorgeous set of handwarmers and matching cowl.  Christi knows how much I love green and so she knit this beautiful set for me.  Not only that, but she also spun the yarn herself!  I couldn't believe my eyes.  I'm not used to anyone making things for me. She made this as a thank you for something I did for her awhile ago.  Something I didn't expect any thanks for, so needless to say, I was just overwhelmed.  I wish you could all slip your hands into the mitts and feel how soft and cozy they are.  I'm truly touched by Christi's generous gesture of friendship.  As I said, lucky me!

On another note, I'm going to shamelessly ask you to help me help out another friend.  Tracy lives in Arizona and has had some major health difficulties in the last few years.  She's entered a contest on Ravelry and I would love it if you would all vote for her project.  I think it's one of the nicest ones in the contest and it would be just so terrific if she could win.  All you have to do it go to Ravelry and vote.  Here's a link to the voting: St. Patrick's Day Celebrations  Click on "love" and that's it! You can read Tracy's touching story.  tracyvw is her Ravelry name and her project is post # 6.  A beautiful Irish scarf.
Isn't it lovely?  So I urge you, if you've ever knit one of my patterns, this is your chance to "pay" me back by helping Tracy out.  I sure hope she wins and I thank each and every one of you!!
