Unfortunately, it’s only a back muscle!
I bent down to pick something up off the floor and, in an effort to protect my sore knee, I sort of twisted my back as I bent and “TWEAK”! So I spent most of Friday jacked up on pain killers and muscle relaxants (yeah, baby – legal drugs!). I did, however, manage to order some yarn:
To make this:
For my brand spankin’ new cousin!
I don’t subscribe to the babies = pastels school of thought. Firstly, it’s the parents that have to look at the kid, so pick stuff you like. Secondly, babies can’t percieve pastel colours anyway, so what’s the point?
This is the mock-up of the fair isle chart I did (the colours are way off from reality, but it’s close enough):
I wanted to include red in the pattern because it’s the Chinese colour of good fortune, wealth and happiness, and since baby F. is half Chinese accountant, half northern idiot (I love my uncle I really do, but he is quite useless) I thought it would be perfect.
I’m off to dose myself up again and celebrate the first assignment mark of 90% that I’ve had in years!
EDIT: I’m fiddling with my template again (ouch!) but I can only test it in Firefox and I.E. for Win XP, under 800×600 and 1024 x768 resolution. I know that the “archive” part (i.e. if you view an entry directly instead of going through the main page) has many problems, not least the fact that the title disappears! The web site of the person who designed the template no longer exists, so I’m on my own! If you have any ideas, feel free to have a look at my code and point me in the right direction!
