Announcement and Apology

I apologize for not replying  to all of you who have attempted to reach me by way of the Contact Me page on this site in the past year or so. The reason, not meant as an excuse,  for this is that in the course of switching computers I lost track of the email address.

The announcement is : The problem has been resolved. I will be answering those emails in the next few days.  My goal is to take care of all of them this weekend, but I cannot promise to meet that goal because family time and family needs come first.  It might be as late as sometime Monday before all of them are answered.

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

 

 

 

 

 

Progress

Dead links have been removed from all of the pages and some of have updated.   New links will start being added today. 🙂 Since there are a lot of them in my files it will probably take a while.

Please feel free to let me know if there are links you would like to see here by leaving a comment on one of the pages. They are normally checked at least once a day.

Thank you again for all of your patience.

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.
