Finally!

I just finished removing dead links from  the Knit Cloths page amd updating others.   It feels like it has taken forever to do this. It has been an interesting process filled with some interesting discoveries. I have seen patterns I have not seen in years and have had some long forgotten memories rekindled.

A number years ago I received a beautiful dishcloth as part of an exchange,  I lacked the courage to ask for the source of the pattern at that time and have often wondered about it. While updating  this page today I  came across it and laughed out loud with the joy that comes with discovering a treasure.

I also discovered  a page containing not only a link to a pattern, but also information on the history of knitting. That brought back a flood of memories of years ago in a world far away when I wanted to be a history teacher.  I was not allowed to pursue that by my parents and life took another path. That did not diminish my love of history.

Thank you for listening. Thank you most of all for your patience while I continue to update this site.

 

 

 

PDF Files

I have been observing that there seems to be an increase in the number of patterns being offered in PDF format. I try to place that in a note at the end of the link so no one is surprised by this. I also open them myself to insure that they are safe and contain a copy of the pattern listed on the link. So far, there has never been a safety or accuracy issue with any of them. I do not expect to have one because most people are honest and upright. Just in case something strange like that ever happens, please be assured that I will not include a link to the pattern on this site. The designer or owner of the web site will also be contacted privately.

Have a great day!

Still Updating

I am still updating this site. For the past couple of days it has felt more like it is being torn more than being updated because of all of the dead links that have removed. I am going down the list of pages in alphabetic order. The last page completely updated today was Holiday Cloths Assorted. It is not possible to tell you there will be more time spent here this weekend because that will probably not be the case. This weekend, like most of them, will be spent taking family time and doing an assortment of other things.

I hope each of you has a wonderful and safe weekend.

Making Progress

The Crochet Cloths page is finally updated. To the best of my knowledge all of the dead links have been removed. It feels like it has taken a long time to accomplish this even though it has only been a little more than 2 1/2 weeks.

There are other things to be done this afternoon such as knitting; a bit of laundry; straightening up the kitchen and eating a late lunch. I will back here sometime to work on more pages.

Have a great day!

Slow Progress

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.

 

Changes on the Way

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.

 

Treasure Found

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.
