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.
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.
Updating this site is taking much longer than I hoped. Work and other aspects of life are interfering. I am still making progress and am looking forward to adding new links later this week or on the weekend.
In the meantime, please be assured the work on this site is continuing.
Be warm and safe!
Thank you to everyone who has commented abut the update. I appreciate your encouragement. Due to unanticipated events I am able to begin updating this site today. I will be here as much as possible for the next few days.
Thank all of you for your patience.
My plan for today was to spend time updating here. Life has happened and there is not enough time to do this. Due to my work schedule, I will not be back until Wednesday to respond to comments and to update pages.
Please be safe and have a great week!
