Messing about with my dashboard


I saw a great theme over at The Pea Green Boat recently. She has a WordPress blog too, and it looks really clean and pretty, and I was inspired to muck about with my blog. Unfortunately I haven’t figured out how to get the photo for the header on the new theme to the right size yet. I tried uploading a couple of pictures and cropping them but they look all weird and stretched out, so I have stuck with my old theme for now.

I did change the header photo – rather funny that I should use a picture of crochet hooks (being Nicola Knits ‘n all) but I wanted something light and relatively unfussy so that the text would show up properly.

I have added some buttons so that people can share my posts – there is a ‘share’ button at the bottom of each post which also includes a Print option, which will hopefully help those of you who want to print my patterns.

Next, I really need to get an up to date photo of myself and change that (maybe a haircut would be a good plan first).

And now I think I’d better check that all those blog links still work, because I haven’t reviewed them in eons.

Hope you had a great weekend. We had beautiful weather again, Tai Chi Man and I enjoyed two long walks, and I nearly forgot but I went to a garage sale that was almost just a yarn sale because two ladies were selling their deceased mother’s stash, and it was huge. Apparently the garage was full to the ceiling two weeks ago – I only saw it today and there was still tons of yarn left. I spent $40 on a tub of yarn, approximately 40 balls. I did a bit of switching between the bins so that I only brought home plain coloured worsted weight acrylic. I know I can use that.

This woman really had achieved SABLE – Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy!

  1. Not sure if you’ll see the response on my blog, but I started with a cropped square image for my header so it wouldn’t distort. It wasn’t the one I had in mind but just one I had that I thought might fit. It’s a lovely clean theme though, I hope you get it to work. Hope that helps,
