A little late for YPF

But here is some yarn porn all the same.

The first is from Merlin The Cat on Etsy (and Knittyboard). It was so much fun to spin. I spun most of it at a demo, and people kept petting it and commenting on the colors.

WPI: I have no earthly idea. Eyeballing it, it's DK to sport weight.
Yardage: 350 yards
Fiber: Pink superwash merino, gray Peruvian Wool, white mohair, gray bamboo

Next up, some merino that I bought at Heritage Arts in Grandview. It was soooooo gorgeous I couldn't resist it. It looked like it was dyed in the locks and then processed, so it made a nice heathery yarn.

WPI: 24 WPI
Yardage: 550 yards
Fiber: 100% merino

On the Blogger issue, MAD PROPS to A at PinkPorcupine Knits. She is seriously awesome and has put in way too much of her personal time helping clueless me. Thank you! And go look at her blog. She is not only talented with the HTML, but has some serious sock yumminess over there.

Dame Wendy, I tried your suggestion but it didn't really fix it. :(

Edit: LOOKIE! Ms. A fixed it for me. It's great! WOOHOO!

I'm so glad it worked!!

Yeah I checked your source code when you changed it but you had changed it to 50px instead of 0px and hadn't deleted the padding line. That's why it was still wonky.

Glad it's all fixed now though!! :)

I didn't actually publish it after changing it your way. I just previewed it. The posts were allllllllll the way over to the left and just too hard to read, and the text was still there. I appreciate you trying to help, though. :)

Glad you got it fixed! Your yarn looks great - now tell me why you wouldn't want to swap spun yarn?!

Dame Wendy said...

Gotcha. :) They're all the way over to the left for me all the time because of my window size so I wasn't sure how it was different.

Love your banner. :)
