See My True Colors

*sigh*... I simply could not resist. While the green from the template was beautiful and soothing to the eyes, it just wasn't quite "me". So, I embarked in the seemingly impossible (considering I failed Computer Science 101) and modified the colors, font and even some design bits! Must be part of the anal tendancy to get things right (just like ripping out "normal people can't see I screwed up" rows to fix a tiny bloop), I had at least 100 trial and error failures. Alas! After many, many hours later... voila!! The new look! These are my true colors. Still, I couldn't bear to part with the green so it remains in the gallery section.

After getting this blog thing in order, finally started sketching some potential designs. I only have 3 balls of Katia Spray (165 yards) - and a ball of white I bought to mix things up...

This creates somewhat of a challenge... but this is the fun part!

You've done a good job in changing things. Once you get a hang of it, you'd like to change more because that's just fun. Make sure you have a backup file of the template before you change anything so that you can always return to it in case anything goes wrong.

Love the new look, Peggy! This is your space, so you should make it exactly how you want it :)

That Katia yarn looks so fun! Love the look of it.

Hope all is well!

Your blog now is very unique and I like the matching hues. I also noticed that you have a new bear design and even wears a matching purple top!
Your Katia Spray balls seem to be fun to work with! Let's see what you will surprise us with.....
