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!

To the Bat Cave

I've been trying to post for several days now and for some reason, Blogger wouldn't let me upload any of the links to my pdf files.  So frustrating, especially since Halloween is fast approaching and I wanted to get these patterns up!

I haven't done a Halloween bib/cloth in a couple of years, mostly because I just hate the holiday.  I didn't like it when I was a kid and I still don't like it.  My sister, on the other hand, just loves it.  Her house is decorated from top to bottom, including the bathroom.  She has so many Halloween themed items of clothing, that she'd have to change her clothes every ten minutes to wear them all!  One of her favorites are bats.  I don't know why, but I thought maybe I'd try coming up with one.  I started with one idea and then another popped into my head.  I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I just did both!

This one is called:  "It's a Bat, Man!".  The bib is done in Peaches & Creme in Gold, and the cloth is Silver Gray.
I didn't want to knit it in black, as you'd never see the design!
The second pattern is called:  "A Little Batty" and is done in Sunburst.
Again, I knit the cloth in Silver Gray.
So there you have it. Maybe you know of a little goblin who'd like a new bib!  You can grab the pdf files from the sidebar under updated bibs and updated cloths.  
Happy Halloween. . . . or not!  ;o)

I love these! "It's A Bat, Man!" especially lends itself to the addition of a big letter on his chest, if you wanted to personalize it.

I hate Halloween, too. Never have understood what causes some people to get all excited and decorate for it. But I DO love your two new bat designs. You are so generous in sharing your clever designs. Thank you.

So I'm wondering, do you draw your designs first freehand and then go from there, or do you just "wing it" no pun intended, as you stitch?
