Wow, has it really been that long? No, but the only additons were minor updates and corrections and such. This weekend though, I added several new patterns to the Knitting section: Highland Socks, Nature Socks, Pancake Socks, International Scarf, Lacy Shawl and Carmen Scarf (no photo for this one yet).

Updated to my Celebrity Poncho pattern regarding "turning the corner", added a couple of tips for the Alternative Neckline.
28 Aug 2004
Hm, just realized I didn't add the exact date of the final site update! Ah well, it looks like it probably was 31 July 2004, based on the dates on the files. :) In other news, I just finished updating my Crocheted Celebrity Poncho as well as the Flower Stitch instructions, based on the questions people have been emailing me with. Wow, is this pattern popular! I also added my new crocheted Charity Granny Blanket pattern.
31 July 2004
I put up a couple of test pages for the new site design, including this one and the Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons Music page. I decided to simplify the site as well. I suspect this will be a longer more ongoing process than I first thought. A redesign always seems to happen that way, when will I ever learn? :) Ah well, at least this time I'm using CSS so future updates should be much easier. Key word being should. :)
20 July 2004
The site is under a major redesign. I've kept the URL's as is, but am changing the colour scheme and overall look. It will take some time to work out all the bugs, but c'est la vie! :)
25 June 2004
I forgot I hadn't put this pattern on the site yet, but now it's here. It's my Denim Shawl.
