Yes, I've fiddled with my blog's appearance again. I loved the overall look but felt it was a bit cluttered. Rather than delete anything, I decided to go for less background pattern and more text space. I made the font bigger too. I hope that makes it easier for everyone, though you probably do what I do: hold the control key down and scroll the mouse to enlarge things I want to read! It beats squinting at the computer!! LOL
I've added all my stash [not counting odds and ends which I use for small projects] to the footer - it will be interesting to see if this was a worthwhile couple of hours work!
I have also rejigged and added to The Queue in my sidebar. I'm going to challenge myself to work through this list [at random]. I have a few books that I have never knitted any patterns from, a few techniques and different yarns I want to try and a few fibre-related, non-knitting things I want to have a go at too. So, when I'm looking for a new project, The Queue and The Stash are the first places to look!
Knitting for charity means that just about any knitted item is acceptable somewhere - usually my three most-knitted-for-charities cover anything I can think of: Operation Christmas Child [toys and children's clothing], Australian Interior Ministries [warm clothing and accessories in all sizes] and Wrap With Love [blankets or squares]. Why these three? Because I can deliver these items without having to pay postal costs to send them somewhere; that saves money for more yarn and more items for charity! Anything else I knit can be sent to one of the thirty or so organisations on the Knit4Charities 2009 calendar!
If all else fails, I have family and friends, and might even knit something for myself - the silk yarn Sally gave me last year is ear-marked for a 'me' project!
