I know squat about html
If you do, please help!
How can I fix my template
so that the main body margin
allows for the right sidebar?

So apparently Blogger doesn't do a wraparound if you do a row of asterisks. Who knew?

Belated Saturday skies :

Ominous pre-departure sky

flying east at night sky
(Since flying east means arriving late at night, I didn't get around to downloading the photos until today. Love that 3 hour time change.)

After trudging through houses with the realtor this morning, I headed over to The Knit Cafe for High Tea. Forgot to take pictures - you'd think that I'm somewhat distracted by mild "starting a new job" anxiety. On the way there, I stopped at Romni Wools, and picked up some yarn. One skein is a Secret Pal gift, and I didn't think of that when I took the photo. Pardon the low tech cropping job.
The Karaoke is to add to the EBTKS bin; it was 25% off. The label-less multicolour sock yarn is Regia Silk, the solid is some wool/wool blend. Since both skeins were orphans, my plan is to use the solid colour yarn for the cuffs/heels/soles/toes of what I have christened "The Blended Family Socks" (There I go with the naming again. If only I could use that power for the forces of good.) The Regia stretch yarn was pretty. No rationalization there. Have I mentioned anything about new job jitters?

Liz (aka blu roux on Knittyboard) brought me a present:

Jitterbug yarn! In the "Jay" colourway.

(Now I have the jingle "OK.. Blue Jays" stuck in my head) . It's so beautiful, that if I had brought the appropriate sized needles, I would cast on for another pair of socks tonight, but in an unusual show of self restraint, I didn't bring spare needles.

In fact, it turns out that I only brought 4 out of the 5 dpns for the Jaywalkers - hence the safety pin being used as a stitch marker . DPN #5 was sitting under my laptop stand. I'm doing a short row heel instead of as written in the pattern. This yarn has a very long pattern repeat; it's close to 6 inches. It would make an awesome sweater (luckily Romni didn't have any of this yarn in stock...)

It's working now by the looks of it. When I used this template the largest pic I could use in the main body was 500 px wide. You may want to check your pics below. Also, you can go into your template and see the # of Pixels designated for each column and the overall page. Make sure the main column isn't too big.

The jaywalkers are looking good. I'm contemplating to make these myself and I can't wait to see yours finished.

Blog looks good, as do the jaywalkers! I'm in awe of your photographic skills. Your pictures are always worth a look or two or three. If you didn't already have a job, you could always try getting into professional photography.

The Reggia Silk color looks so rich. The color choice for your Jaywalkers is perfect.
