A new look (well, sort of)

I'm a dreadful blog decorator. I admit it. I'm not a complete technophobe but I don't have the patience to sit down and work out how to make my blog look more interesting. I'd rather knit in the spare time I have. I had a burst of enthusiasm recently to try and improve my blog wardrobe but after half an hour of trying to work out progress bars (and yes, I even looked at the Ravelry instructions!) I thought, "bah, I'm going to cast on a new sock".

As far as I knew, a widget was a fictitious manufactured item often referred to by the English House of Lords when giving hypothetical examples in their judgments. I also know that it's one of those little balls in cans of, for example, Guinness. Frankly, I still don't know much more about them!

Fortunately, I have some very generous and talented friends :)

One of those friends is Carol. She made my header thingie for me. I really love it and I just wanted to do a quick thank you post. So thank you, darling Carol, for your aesthetic contribution.

Maybe one day I'll have widgets that aren't beer can balls.


  1. Ooooh it looks fabbo, but it's merely due to your brilliant photography. I just whacked some words and a border on it. LOL

  2. Ahh, you are less of a Luddite than I am!! Love the new header, very appropriate!!

  3. Very nice!! I can never work out how to fancy up the blog either - like you, I'd rather be knitting!! It looks great.

  4. ooh Carol's done a great job. All the fiddling about I've ever done has been after asking for help. Widgets are easy though - blogger just says click this button and suddenly it's there!

  5. It's good to see you back! With the busy year you've had, it's easy to see how blogging can take a back seat. Samara is a cutie!

  6. Hi, I'm with Donna Lee. Somehow I missed your return, but all will be well now, you are back in my bloglines. How grown up is your daughter? That went fast.
