Yup...colors and such are changing...bear with me while it's a little crazy over here. I wanted to feel spring and summer when I look at the bog. The old style will probably come back in the fall though with some changes as well. I'm surprised at how easy this is to do. I'm still staying within the confines of one of the main blogger templates, though after I finish this HTML book (which I haven't opened in a week so don't get too excited out there) I should be able to do more intense things.
Oh, the WIP in the background can now be defined as a FO. Time to start the next one. I'll do a boring color next; "natural." I had to skimp out on one of the repeats because I couldn't get it in with the amount of yarn I had. The FO is therefore a bit shorter than I would have liked, but I kept my sanity and am actually excited to start the next one. I'm still not really sure why, but I'm going to hope that I can continue to be excited about it after it's been cast on!
My issue of IK came in the mail today! There's some interesting tid bits in it. Once I finish reading it I'll let you know what I really think about it. There's a nifty pattern for a felted hat that looks like a good idea. I've never done anything with needle felting so maybe that's a good project for it.
Oh - note to self - for mom's present, you'll need some iron on transfer paper and some iron on backing - Katy and I have come to the conclusion that P&S or Pearl by Canal street might have it. ALSO - fabric for a belly dancing veil can probably be purchased around 7th ave and 40th (is that the right cross street there gals?). Hopefully these errands will get done tomorrow, but I doubt the fabric places will be open on Sunday.
Who in NYC would be interested in getting together for an HTML/CSS "Get to know your blog" party? Any idea where a good place to host one would be? I'm thinking somewhere relatively accessible (read: not someone's apartment) that would have free wireless access and room for a bunch of us to get together and talk about how to make our blogs look the way we want them to. I'm thinking the best time for such an event would be after I've finished reading this HTML book (I'm about a third of the way through). Not that I'm an HTML/CSS expert, but I think I know enough to teach some people that don't know that much about how HTML/CSS works, and I have enough patience to actually sit down and look at a bunch of blogs to see where to plunk in certain attributes. Any grand ideas?
