I was bad. I admit it! I did not go for a long run on Sunday. I was struck with insomnia again Saturday night & ended up getting about 5 hours of sleep & didn’t climb out of bed until 10:30 – a totally unheard of event for this early bird, let me tell you!! LOL
This morning I struggled again, as I didn’t drop off last night until after 1am – but I finally managed to get in a good 3 mile run. The humidity was 98%, which made for a really miserable run – but I managed to keep my pace at a fairly decent level, anyway!
A bit of a Revamp
I’m sure any regular readers have noticed the revamp, of course! Sunday morning I decided to play around with my blog, updating links & such. I found that the template I prefer for my blog doesn’t allow me to sort my links in any particular order… which annoyed me to no end. In reading up on it, I also found that printing from this template was fugly at best… not that I’m sure anyone is actually printing out my blog, but hey – you just never know! LOL
So I found a new template to use… and spent a good bit of time tweaking it. I’m not sure yet if I like it or not, though. Some things I don’t like, other things I really do like. I like the clean look/feel to it, but I’m not too sure about it having the default text be quite this large of a font – though it’s supposed to make it much easier to read. Hmmm. What do you all think?
I also finally bit the bullet & registered my domain. I’ve had this blog for coming up on 3 years now. Wow! I’ve thought about getting my domain many times over the past 3 years, but just never quite got around to doing it. While I was revamping, I spontaneously went for it. LOL
I’ve been working on the new pattern this past weekend. I think I finally have a winner for this colorway! Yay! As you can see, my design process is just as chaotic as ever, with scribbled notes crossed out & new notes jotted down as I knit, frog, knit, rip back…
I’m also working on a Storm Cloud Shawlette, using Malabrigo Silky Merino in the Stonechat colorway. It is a super easy pattern to knit – perfect for watching Doctor Who or maybe some movies. :)
Today’s Ravelry Search
So for today’s search, I decided to take full advantage of Ravelry’s newly revamped search feature as well. Revamp for my blog; revamp for Ravelry – why not? LOL As always, these are not my patterns – click the picture to go to the Ravelry pattern page!

Happy Monday, everyone!
Wow…lots of pretty patterns.
LOVE the picture of the sock design process. :) Pretty colors!!
hmmmmmm that new design looks interesting!
;) I’m having fun with it!
I love this colorway! I almost hate to knit socks with it! LOL
Those projects? Give a totally new dimension to the word “doily”. LOL
ROFL! Indeed. They do make incredible circular shawls or blankets, though. ;)
Likes the new look
Whew! Thank you! :D I haven’t heard any feedback, so I really appreciate yours!!
