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!

Knitwit Alli

My friend, Alli, truly is a knitwit, but I mean that in the nicest possible way. Not only is she the best friend a person could ever hope for, but she's one talented designer as well. Yesterday, she opened her new website , which has all her wonderful designs. Although they are primarily dishcloths, she does have some other goodies there as well. Periodically, I get to test knit her patterns, and in turn, she test knits for me. It's always so much fun because we get to see each other's work before anyone else! In the past few months, I've knit quite a few of her designs, but I haven't been able to post pictures, as she's been working on her new site. Since she's now officially up and running, here are some of the cloths that I've knit. First up are her "My Earth" and "Save the Earth" cloths. I used Peaches and cream in Lt. Sage and Celery.

I love these Ivy cloths. I think they're just too pretty to use.

Finally, I got to knit her "Baby Bear" cloth which really appeals to me for obvious reasons. We have something special in mind for this design, but it's still in the works!

So okay, I know this was just a shameless plug for the new website, but then again, what are friends for? Good luck Alli!

Nice site...lovely patterns. I like the ones that you have knit the best, however! My sister puts dishcloths under all of her flower pots. Those would be such an appropriate gift for her. YIKES...there I am thinking gift knitting. I promised myself I wasn't going to do that this year. LOL.....
