I know it has been more than a week since I promised to do some major updating here. It is going a lot slower than I hoped. There have been a lot of dead links removed . Some have been able to be updated. Please be assured that I am still here and working even if it does not look like it. Thank you again for your patience.
I realized one day last week that almost two years have past since this site has been updated. The sad truth is there were other priorities in my life. Realizing my need to make some changes on this site and feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work which needs to be done here, I took a couple of days to come up with a plan. My decision is to go through each published page on this site and remove or correct the broken links that can quickly and easily be repaired. After doing this I will rebuild the site. I will also be going through comments and responding to them. To those of you who have been ignored as the result of my absence, I apologize and say “Thank you” for your patience.
While working the page of Knit Cloths yesterday I came across and a link to an old site that can now be found only on the Web Archive. Take a look at this:
Assorted Cloths-Web Archive–Lily Dishcloth Patterns. page with black background. It has nine old patterns written out there. They look like they would be fun to try. If you want to try them, I would be delighted to see pictures of what you make. I would also like to know what you think of them.
In the past few years this site has become lost in the shuffle of life. In the past few weeks some changes have been made in my life. One of the results of these is there is more time for updating this site. There have been and will continue to be pages updated almost daily. Dead links will be removed. New links will be added. Please do not expect to see major changes for a few weeks. It is taking longer than expected to reach my goals for this site.
I have discovered this morning that one of my favorite websites: Piece by Piece by Kathy North is being rebuilt. Links to patterns hosted there were available up until as recently as early February of this year when I used one of the patterns from it. At this time I will be leaving links to patterns from that site in place and will be checking at least once every two weeks to see if they are available. Once current links are available they will be updated on this site.
Work on this site is going a lot more slowly than planned. There has only been an hour or two to spend on it when I am not working outside the home. Be assured it is not being ignored.
Have a great day!

Tagged Site Update
Up until now I have tried as much as possible not to link patterns to the Web Archive. After experience much consideration my policy has changed. There are a number of sites which contain some beautiful cloths which are only available by way of the Archive. Some of the cloths on these websites have links to them on Ravlery, but the reality is that not all who come to this site are part of that community. From this time forward I will be linking to patterns on the Archives when patterns have had links to active sites.
Thank you for your patience as this site continues to be updated.
