A Year in Color and Just Wondering.....

A Year in Color - Lime Green WIP
I have been doing a little knitting and a little sewing but free time hasn't been on my side lately. Here is the knitting WIP. It will be either a washcloth or bib. The pattern is originally a dishcloth but I think it might make a nice bib. I also made a blue denim bag last week. Blue Denim Blue Denim This was my first attempt at placing ric rac at the top edge of the bag. As always with a new technique/pattern I consider the first bag as a learning experience taking note of how to make improvements. Friends are loving these trial runs....I give the bags to them if I don't use them myself.

Speaking of learning...
I love reading blogs and exploring all the talent found throughout each blog I read. I was just wondering....how do you change the banner on blogs? Is there a tutorial out there somewhere with instructions? Any ideas?

I am definitely NOT an expert, but I'll tell you what I did in Typepad. In the place where you can edit your banner, there is a spot to upload a banner instead of using theirs. I created a banner in Photoshop then put it in as a .jpg file. I had to mess around with the size of my banner quite a bit. I'm sure it is much easier than I was making it! Good luck!

Same goes for blogspot, too. You can upload a specific size banner. Or, you can ask your friend to do it for you. That's what I did:) hee hee!

Love the blue denim bag! I haven't had much time for the good stuff lately, either. So frustrating!

What?? You can change the banner?? Ah, the things I learn!
The new bag is terrific, and now I'm going to have to use the rickrack idea on something.

Heya! Thanks for the link to the dishcloth pattern. I've been knitting a ton of those lately, and I love getting new patterns! The bag looks lovely, too.
