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!

Well, here it is, another birthday and time for a new pattern. I have to keep up my tradition of posting a new pattern every year on my birthday, now don't I? This pattern is in honor of my youngest grandson, Marty. He just loves baby chicks. Not the chickens they grow up to be, but the babies. He has his own little blog where he posts pictures of chicks and he has an imaginary pal, Cheepy. As part of his home schooling, he even writes stories about Cheepy's many adventures. With that in mind, I decided that Cheepy needed to be memorialized, if you will, in cloth.
Marty has decided that the Cheepy cloths are all his, so I had to use his favorite colors, yellow and orange, however, since he's long past the bib stage, I knit the bib in Apple Green.
I love the combination of colors. Very citrus like!
The pdf for the patterns are listed in the sidebar, or you can click here for the bib, or here for the cloth.

You might be interested to know that Cheepy has a grandmother named "Lain Cheepy". Whenever Cheepy goes to visit her, "she lets him play with her computer and he can eat anything that he wants!". I should add a disclaimer here that any similarities between Marty and his own grandmother are purely coincidental.
