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!

I love this pattern! It was easy to knit, and I would like to post it, and with your permission, include a link to your blog...from my blog, VeggieBound.blogspot.com. I used pigs as a graphic for a family cookbook...and your dish cloth is awesome!

Thank you for this pattern. It turned out perfectly. It is adorable and I love how it looks like a pencil sketch or doodle. The fact that it is not perfectly symmetrical is really cool, because no one is actually symmetrical. Good job!
