My 100th post!

Today is my 100th post since I began my blog. In honor of this momentus occasion, I'm previewing my new look for the fall. Courtesy of quixotic pixels, I have a new template. I'm still tweaking it so if you find that something is missing or a link doesn't work anymore or if you just don't like it at all, please let me know. I hope to have a favorite things section soon in addition to a UFO/FO information page.

Quick knit update: I started my holiday knits this weekend (yes, Rogue is still languishing in my new lantern moon basket. I promise to finish you soon, my dear) with a snazzy shawl I call "Moonlight over the Blue Ridge". It's a modified feather and fan pattern similar to the Collinette afghans, et all in various purples and blues. It's very pretty though I haven't decided who to give it to yet. I bought a ton of yarn and have it separated into bags for the various projects. My next project is to do some serious stash busting to whittle down my mountain of yarn. I also need to special order some Cascade 220 colors since the LYS was out mostly the off white that felts. I'm so excited about knitting more than scarves for people this year.

That's it for now. It's a busy week here at the House of Muse so I may not make to my blog often. I have to get the boys ready for their school's annual camping trip and I'll be out of town Tuesday and Wednesday. I plan to check out a new yarn shop in Bedford though on my way to Richmond this week. I've decided that my mission within the next six months will be to visit every yarn shop in Virginia. I don't have many more to go and will post my opinions as I have time. Take care all and have a great week!

I love the new look. My fave is the little line of leaves at the bottom of the post. Congrats on 100 posts, that's an achievement!

And yes, please post your thoughts on the LYS's in VA--I'm so curious, too!

Went to add you to our "Co-stars", and we can't seem to save your button. We keep getting a "function disabled" notice.

Great new look! I LOVE autumn

Yeah, there's something in the code that disables right clicks (I think to keep people from stealing the images without QP's permission). I can email you the image if you send me your email. Thanks for letting me know :)

Isn't blogging fun? Hasn't it changed your life in possitive ways? I'm sure glad I decided to start. I like the look of your new template.

Thanks Amy Boogie for your suggestion about setting up another blog with the old blog template on it. It was nice to have a safety net in case I royally screwed up the new template :)
