A bit of a revamp to mark the darkest day of the year in this hemisphere! I'm still having a few CSS issues, noticeably the fact that no matter what I do, the content in my right hand pane insists on hiding waaaay down there below all my current posts. I assume that this means the whole pane is actually hiding down there, because the total width of my panes is greater than that of the screen as a whole, but no matter how I tweak the numbers, it remains shy and retiring. Incidentally, it works great on the Blogger preview. Anyone shedding any light on this can take a virtual mince pie and my thanks as a reward.
In more fibre-related news, after seeing Mary's recent post, I've decided to sign up for Knit From Your Stash 2007. This really shouldn't pose any difficulties at all – I have more than enough stash to do it – it's purely my resolve that is in question. I too am tweaking the original rules, as follows:
1. My Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run for the whole year. I have no reason to stop partway through, and plenty stash.
2. I will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:
2.a. Sock yarn does *so* count. It doesn't in the original rules, but it will in mine. I have enough sock yarn to knit for a small army.
2.b. I may buy yarn to knit specific gifts for specific people, as long as that person is not me!
2.b.i. I may purchase yarn to be given as a gift, as long as the recipient is not me!
2.c. If I am knitting something and run out of yarn, I may purchase enough to complete the project.
2.d. I get two "Get Out of Jail Free" cards – the original challengers/challengees only have one each – I am running this for a whole year, after all, and would hate to go to Woolfest or any other fibre festival with zero purchasing power.
2.e. It's possible that I will start learning to weave this year. Not very likely, but possible. I can buy yarn for a specific weaving project, as required, immediately before that project is due to start. I will most definitely *not* build a stash of weaving yarn!
3. I am allowed to receive gifts of yarn.
4. Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt, but I will try not to increase the size of my stash in this time.
