Stuff n junk

So, I’ve been doing stuff. No, no, really – I have! For one thing, I’ve been redesigning my website. Please bear with me, as it’s transitioning right now – plus, the layout looks a little funky if you have to use the second-choice font. I’m working on it. I think the new look is cleaner and more professional, and it eliminates the nasty side-scrolling if you have your computer set to a low resolution. So I’ve been doing thaaaaat…
I’ve also been working on Liesel some more. It’s taking me a ridiculously long time to get through it, but I think that it’s due to the fact that this is my first time knitting lace. It’s my first time with all of those yo and sk2po and ssk and k2tog and all of that knitting mumbo-jumbo. At the beginning I kept losing yarnovers, which was fun. Now I almost always have the correct stitch count at the end of a row, but I still can’t read the lace to see what ought to go next the way I can with cables. It makes it take longer. I got through a repeat in half an hour last night – my fastest one yet, I think – so I do have hopes that the scarf may be completed someday.
In other news, I’ve decided to submit my pattern. I think. I mean, I’ve crocheted a swatch to send off, which makes it look like I will. So perhaps I shall. I mean, I will. Of course I will! It’s not that much trouble. And they probably won’t ridicule me. One hopes. That would be very unprofessional behaviour.
So….yeah. All of that hardly makes for interesting blog updates. If you’re bored, though, you can cruise on over to Inner Child Crochet and see if you can find the edges of the background repeat…

    I’m excited to see your scarf when it’s done. She’s sure makes it sound like it would take awhile. I know it would take me at least a decade.

    I’m not sure if you can use other fonts than what your website provider will let you use but here’s a good site for all kinds of wicked awesome fonts.

    The “real” problem with fonts is they either are on the same computer as the browser OR they have to be downloaded, sooo, non-standard fonts may do better as graphic images (like in your banner).
