Well, I did it again. Spent more time spiffying the blog than working on a post.
In trying to figure out how to post the handspun stuff, I kinda ran into some complications.
Flickr don't like it when you use their photos to sell something on your website. So I can't use Flickr.
Etsy is a bit expensive, so I'll hold off for now.
Creating a new blog requires putting the photos some place.
My blogging software has a photo gallery, but the skin has links to a bazillion things you just don't need to see. Plus, it doesn't look like my blog.
So I worked on the skin.
And now my blog doesn't look like my blog. Heh.
I changed things around to fit the new banner. It really changed things. Plus, I was feeling like the colors were getting kinda dark. Wanted to lighten things ups. It's definitely lighter. :) But I like.
So... Handspuns are temporarily housed at http://twoleftneedles.com/shop. (Who knows what temporary is?) I'll add a linky-dink to the sidebar at some point, too.
I'm still working out formatting issues; it's not quite there yet, but close enough!
I managed to spin some this weekend, but very little knitting was accomplished. Oh, and I had to chuck that pink-purples roving. Instead of rinsing it out I let it sit ... and it grew a bit o' mold. Yuck. Chucked. I think I've learned my lesson. (I hope I've learned my lesson.)
I did go to Fabric Place's 25% off sale Saturday, and bought a sweater's worth of Classic Silk for my guy. And a couple of skeins of non-wool for a possible Alien scarf. And nothing else. 'Cuz I have enough yarn. And it's nice to know that every now and then I realize it too.
I leave you with an in progress photo of Sangria, or That Cute Flirty Skirt. Here's what a skein of Classic Silk will get you:
