Please excuse the dust

I'm in the process of updating my sidebar, something which I had been meaning to do for aeons. This will take a while since I have limited computer time, so the sidebar may appear a bit wonky at times.

I've already started by redoing my knitting blog links, changing it from "link list" Layout Element to "html" Layout Element, and adding a new section for photography links.

For those of you who use Blogger, you may recall that there used to be Old Blogger before this current incarnation known as New Blogger. Sometime during the transition to the new blogger template, I went into the Layout section and created a new Element, choosing "link list". This is what my Free Patterns list is and I despise it. When you add a new link, it will appear at the very top of the list. Moving them up or down, line by line, isn't too difficult when the list is short. Unfortunately my link list has grown quite a bit and it is a real PITA to add a new link and insert it where I want it to appear. My goal is to scrap it and recreate it using the "html" Layout Element. It will be so much easier to cut/paste to rearrange things in the list.

I'm thinking of removing the Google Translator widget. I'm not sure it is benefiting anyone. There are times when I see a bunch of icons there, times when only a few appear, and other times none at all. It doesn't appear reliable at all. And I suspect than anybody who needs to translate my blog into another language has their own system for doing so.

I do have some knitting to share with you, but it'll have to wait until the next post...
