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!

Little Porker

Thank you for waiting so patiently for me to get my act together and to finally post another animal from Ruthie's Farm.  This time it's the pig.  I had a hard time coming up with a name for this one.  All of my great ideas were already taken.  I was complaining to my good pal, Tunie, that I didn't know what to name the little porker, when she said to name it that!  Duh!
I used Peaches & Creme in Sunburst, but I think it would look good in almost any color.
For the cloth, I used Army Tan.  I love this shade of brown.  It's a pity that they discontinued this yarn.  I know it was bought out by Lily, but it just isn't the same.  Fortunately, I stocked up on a whole bunch of cones before they went out of business.
The pdf files are in the sidebar or you can click here for the bib and here for the cloth.

The aforementioned Tunie knit both the pig and the chicken as hostess gifts for a friend.
Anyone for bacon and eggs?
