New Look...New Name...

Surprise! I have a new look...only thing is, it doesn't have anything to do with cats or kittens (but that's ok). I decided that it was time for a change, and I wasn't really liking the other template anymore. I found the background, while cute, was a little distracting underneath the words in the post.

I've also changed the name some. The blog still has the same link as before, so you don't need to change that - just the name of the blog on your links. The new name is Kitten Knits Yarn. Since I have more than one blog, I was finding that often when I would venture over to a new knitting blog and leave a comment, that person would go to my Confirm the Work of Our Hands blog to leave a comment. I figured they were missing out on the knitting goodness, so I thought if I put Knits in the title, it might help guide them...we'll see. Not that I minded them going to the other blog (I would actually enjoy if more people went there too), just that if they were looking for knitting content, they wouldn't find it there.

Also, you'll notice that my sidebar is waaaaayyyyy down at the bottom. I think the reason for that is some of the pictures in previous posts are large and might be affecting it. I'm not totally sure on that though. If someone knows what to do (other than wait for those posts to get off this page), please leave me a message in the comment section so I can try to fix it.

Well, school is done for winter break now...Yay!! I have been working the last coupld of days on my Christmas knitting, and I think it will all be done on time - at least I hope it will. No pictures to show yet, but after Christmas, I promise I will post some. I've also got two or three projects I want to make for myself that I am anxious to start on.

Just wanted to make a quick post (are any of my posts ever really "quick"?) to let you all know about the new changes here at Kitten Knits Yarn. Happy knitting!

Shelley, LOVE the new look!! I'm always a sucker for a new blog skin =)
As for the sidebar... I'm viewing your blog via my Firefox and I see no problems at all. =)

Ruth...that's good to know. Maybe there won't be problems for others too. I know when I was setting it up and would click the preview button, everything was fine. But when I actually saved it...totally different story. Maybe I need to refresh the screen or something...nope, just tried it twice and everything is still way at the bottom.

Hey, it looks great! I'm also using firefox and not having problems. Maybe it's time to download firefox!

I think your new blog background looks cool!

I think the sidebar sliding to the bottom has something to do with the sizing of either the sidebar, itself, or something in it being too wide. I had the same dang thing happen last summer and it annoyed the heck out of me! LOL There was a website with helpful info on it, www.bloggerforum.com/
that might be able to explain how to fix it, if you do a search there.

Have fun on your time off from school!
