Take that blogger!

I fixed my header. Stupid blogger. I decided not to fight the battle for now and just add my blog name to my picture and be done with it until I can figure out the code. (Well, I looked and tried to figure out the code, but I really do not see why things seem to be going astray.) But it's FIXED! La la la laaaaa! Happy!

Blog Header Issues - Grrrr!

Okay, so things with the header are not so good. Apparently, part of the bottom of my header image is being cut off by blogger. If I use the image instead of my blog title and description, it's fine (but then I have no title!). If I use the image as a background for my title and description, it gets cut off at the bottom. I'm going to have to try and figure it out later tonight. Ugh! Grrrrr.
And I just looked at the preview and the top is coming and going! WTF!

A new look for the bloggie! I've taken a pre-designed blogger template and tweaked it to my satisfaction! So happy. (well, for now at least.) Now that I know how to do this, I might be making more and more changes! I used a blogger template called Polar Bears that I found on the net with a google search. (I'll try to add the website here once I track it down.) I changed the header picture and the footer picture using my own images. I also editied some of the html code to make it so I could use the blogger dashboard to change the colors. I took the sheep picture in my header on a vacation to New Zealand last year. I was lucky enough to be there during lambing season. Cute! (How I wish I had been more of a knitter back then, I definately would have shorn a sheep and bought some yarn!) The picture in my footer is the first yarn that I bought for no specific reason. (Mirasol Hacho) I just liked it. Thus beginning my stash! My stash has grown a bit now.....I just bought sock yarn just becuase I liked it and I have ordered some sock books. (So I really did need some sock yarn!) So, new look. Better than the plain ol' jane look I had with the basic blogger template. Yay!

Binary Hat rocky beginnings

I'm knitting my brother a Binary Hat (from redshirtknitting blog). But I'm putting a different word in it.

Ugh. I cast on and knit a few inches. There is NO WAY that the man's size would have fit my brother's head. I was on gauge too. I'm going to have to measure some poor man's head. (Someone I know, of course!) Could you imagine me going up to strangers asking to measure their heads? Ha ha ha ha ha!
