I've been working on my links sections and on creating some affiliate links. I'm very new to all of this kind of stuff; I just play it by ear, then check to see what it looks like. So far, I think all the links are working right and hopefully it all looks good. The thing I can't get to work right is adding a picture of books I'm reading now to the link for the book. Seems that I need a local image path, which is the place where the picture is stored on my site (I think), but the only place I have that I store pictures is in Photobucket. I'm not sure how to do this in Blogger. From Photobucket, it just shows up as the dreaded Red X. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. I'd love to be able to show a thumbnail of what I'm currently reading.
I bought some yarn to make myself this scarf while we're flying. I figured that would be an easy thing to transport and work on in a small space (I still have to call about taking a crochet hook in my carry-on though - I'll do that tomorrow). I love the yarns I chose - Lion Brand Red Fun Fur and Lion Brand Hard Candies Boucle' - and the pattern is the easiest I've ever done. It won't take long to make, and I'm just dying to make it before we leave. But the kids won't let me. Let me explain.
Samuel and Beth are reading the Left Behind series, and they're ready to start book 6. We checked the books out of the library, but we won't let them have them till Monday, because they'll read them this weekend and have nothing to do on the plane. So . . . when I got the yarn "to make my scarf on the plane", Beth took that as my project to do ONLY on the plane. So I'm stuck. Out of fairness to them, I will wait till we're on the plane, which is Tuesday. I know very well that I could pull rank here, but I'll play along and wait. Maybe.
