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!

Remember the shawl KAL for Among the Heather?  I have been working diligently on it, despite the fact that I seem to be the only one participating in the group.  Here's an update of where I am:

Lace always looks so "rumply" before it's blocked.  However, so far, it has a lot of very pretty texture. At this point, it also has a lot of stitches and I've never been more aware of it until today, when I accidently dropped about three stitches and they unraveled before I could even get some not so ladylike words out of my mouth!

Thankfully, I do have lifelines, but I still have a lot of ripping to do.  A genuine "frog" in the heather.
