playing with my layout

I have a wide screen, so I don't know how this all looks on a normal square screen. Is the picture (of the mug/endpaper mitts) on the top right too large? Is it all out of wack? How's it lookin'?

In other news, I have decided that, rather than taking my attention away from schoolwork, knitting helps me to concentrate. Last weekend, after I finished the bulky pom-pom hat, I made myself not knit. Instead of getting tons of work done, I got absolutely nothing done, despite my hands being free to type. I just stared slack-jawed at the laptop as I perused the internets. So now I am going to try to knit in moderation. I started these herringbone mittens (ravelink) last night and can't decide if they look totally wack (that's my word today, apparently) or not. I'll have to knit a few more rows and see, and then maybe try it with different yarns, because I think the contrast between the two colors is too great. I love all the versions I've seen on the Rav, so it must just be me.

I love the new look. I wonder if a little redecorating would motivate me to blog more?

It might! I've seen some lovely things on your flickr that you haven't written anything about...

I love the new header - awesome picture!! I think the pic of the mitts on the side is a bit big - but I love it anyway :)

Thanks, Jody! I think I'll try to downsize the mitts...

Oh, and the top pic is the view from the top of Mount Zao in Yamagata, Japan. I love it, too!
