I inadvertently changed my blog last weekend. I wanted to install a label cloud and while tinkering I clicked on "upgrade," not realizing that I would lose data. Further tinkering recovered many of my links, but my buttons are gone. I suppose in this Ravelry age, not many of us are collecting buttons and badges anymore (are we?), but I wish I had mine back just for sentimental reasons. They reminded me of the knitting contests I entered, the knit-a-longs I joined, the first knitters I met online. Even the bars that showed the projects I never finished! I know that as I read your blogs I'll find some of those old buttons and I will attempt to recover them. I won't revert to the Classic Blogger - I've discovered that the newer version has many features I like that aren't available for Classic. But I wish I had saved my old blog's HTML code before I started playing around. Be warned.
Tinkering is easier and faster - and more dangerous - now that I have a new laptop. I'll continue to refine this blog, and hopefully be as pleased with it as I was the last.
I am still knitting. The shawl is stalled again. The yarn that I thought was right, wasn't when I took it out into the sunlight. I need the knit police here to advise me. I have one more source to try: Colourmart. they make an interesting looking silk blend in a colorway called "Lemonade." They've been out of it forever.
Decided to check - they had one cone left! I hope it will be a better match than what I'm using now. If not, I know I'll use it for something else. Priscilla made a pair of socks out of it and it was beautiful. In the meantime, I'm working on a skirt from a kit I bought in Miami a couple of months ago. Photos will follow later.
