Small Changes, Cleaning....

I tidied up the top part of the left sidebar a bit. It more realisitically shows what I'm actually working on but still has a list of things that are wonderful distractions. I'm also playing with colors and toying with the idea of changing the look of the blog.

I'd show you progress of the Aran Afghan but I actually took a few steps back. I started this a few years ago, my tension is a little different. I also made a mistake and started using yarn that is the same brand but a slightly different color. So slight that I didn't notice until the sun came out a few days ago, ARGH. I thought the yarn might be dirty so I tried rinsing it. Then I remembered the other yarn and after drying I realized the gauge grew. So, I took the opportunity to restart and make sure I had the correct yarn all in one spot! I also made the sides a little narrower and switched the rope directions. The original pattern has them all turning to the right. I decided to make them turn so they kind of match the middle pattern. I'm already pretty far on it, so it was a good restart, even if I never really like to do that!

Anyway, Hope everyone is having a Happy New Year! Glad to be back in the swing of things and I plan to post atleast twice a week!
