Fiber Friday

A Note: You may have noticed that things have changed around here. I've decided not to switch to WordPress after all the technical trouble I've been though already with them. It seemed more practical to keep my account here and just work with it. I still have some things to fix, such as the date to post title ratio (why is the date HUGE and the title tiny?) that so far has proved totally illogical. I'm actually very proud of how much I've learned in the last couple of days. What do you think? Is it too cluttered? I can't tell if I just need to get used to it or if I don't like it...Let me know your opinion(s)!

All that said, let's get to my fun new tradition! Fiber Friday! I have so many fun fiber things going on that I'd love to constantly bombard you with photos, but I'm trying to restrain myself. One on Friday, and maybe a WIP Wednesday... if I'm looking for an excuse.

Oops, originally uploaded by Soasa Designs.

The big pile on the left is mostly pure cotton with one chartreuse skein of cotton/silk blend. All that is destined to become a woven skirt (I hope!) In the back there are two beautifully rich skeins of pure wool, the deep gold a the gem tone variegated. The light green with the shawl pin is for my weaving class on Saturday, and it's an acrylic/wool blend. Before anybody freaks out that I went out and bought so much yarn today let me divulge, I did not spend more than U$S35. Yes, you read that correctly. South America is on my side this time!

Gorgeous photo! Just so you know, it was in color on my bloglines and it's black and white now that I'm actually on your site.

I love Wordpress, and find that the dashboard is incredibly empowering and easy to use, especially the latest version. Having tried Blogger, I can say that the functionality just isn't there. I'm a high end intermediate web/computer user, so we're probably right on the same mark when it comes to aptitude for tinkering in the guts of stuff.

Have fun playing and switching things around, you'll find a look that works for you.

It's black and white?! I can't even imagine how that would happen, as it's never been black and white... How strange!

Now that I've futzed around with Blogger I do feel a bit more comfortable manipulating things. Still I'm unhappy that after 5 days they haven't gotten my posts transferred or updated me on the process, and I can't wrap my head around the inability to customize headers on so many of their themes.

We'll see where I end up! Thanks for the vote of confidence:)
