Thanks twisted. I just went to my blog and figured out how to mess with the colors, type and type size. Meant to look at yours while I was there. I'm trying to decide about a new template, but messing with the html? I have no clue!

The HTML part was tricky...getting all the sizes correct and what not. It took me a long time, all darn morning! But I am pretty happy with the colors and I really wanted to use some of my yarn as the background. So, I like it. I will mess with it more tomorrow, I am sure. There it is, if anyone is wondering what on earth I am going on and on about.
