Woo-hoo! and Gak! 

"Woo-hoo!" because of the new CA KnitBlogs ring set up by the fabulous JenLa and "Gak!" because when I cut and pasted the ring code into my sidebar, I experienced the same thing I had when I tried to put up the CritterKnitters link.

Bullet points abounded and my fonts were all funked up.

    But I still have no idea why the font went super-sized on its own, or why adding another item in the sidebar suddenly made my browser see bulletpoints where it had seen only part of link code before.

    I'll be buying an HTML for Dummies soon, I promise, so I'll stop boring you all with my entry-level confusions. I definitely need to tweak this template, it's very blah. But I am afraid of screwing up things irretrievably. Like when you start ripping back lace...

    I found some fun HTML help websites though, with fun code generators and helpful examples.HTML Basix andComputer Hope, if you're interested.

    I've been knitting a little, but haven't any fun pics at the moment, so I'll just end this post with a pic of a bridge over Agua Clara river in Chiapas.
