Fresh Face

Notice anything different?

The blog has had an upgrade (to WordPress 2.7.1) and a face lift.  The bandages are not yet off, so there might be some more changes made in the next week or two.  It was just time for a change.  

I found this theme here.  I’ve been searching for a new theme for a very long time and have been threatening to change the look and feel of this blog for months.  I finally made a firm decision – I will not start another knitting project until I change the blog.  Period. 

I’m making steady progress on the Spina di Pesce sock, but frankly doing all my knitting on size 0 (2mm) needles and all twisted stitches is a) hard on my hands; and b) getting a little boring.  I want to start a second project with bigger needles and no twists.  Thus, today was the day to upgrade the blog.

The header images that are currently shown are not my own.  That I want to change by adding some NL specific images.  Since the header is wide and thin, it will take some time in Photoshop to create the images I want.  Stay tuned for that.

I’d love to hear any comments you might have about what you find nice on blogs.  What features do you like on other people’s blogs?  Any suggestions to make this one better?  OK, besides better writing and photos. 🙂

    Love the new layout! I like the bright and clean look.

    Depending on the resolution of your camera, it shouldn’t be too hard to get decent header images. I have a 5 MP camera and the JPGs it shoots are more than 2000 pixels wide to start… more than enough for what you’re trying to do here. Good luck!

    I like the layout (grin – since I am shortly using it myself). What I found is that 40% is a bit much on the side transparencies for most of the images I have and that 20-30% worked better……

    The new layout looks great. Your photos are wonderful–no change is needed with them!
