A New Look

I think it is about time that I have an updated look for Mereknits.  But there is a big problem, I am technology challenged.  I have yet to figure out how to take a picture on my Android 4g phone, I can barely text, and I do so using one finger to punch in the letters at a time.  I am hopeless.  I work with special needs children, mostly babies in need of a lot of help.  My brain and my hands know what to do when I touch a baby.  I can tell you what is going on with their development within seconds.  But change something on my blog....no way.

This is where my incredible, wonderful, perfect, stunning, beautiful and talented sister Claudia comes along.  She is the one who got me into this blogging business to begin with, and for that I am eternally thankful.  I was chatting with Claudia yesterday, whining a bit about my blog being sooooooooo outdated.  She said she would update it and here you have my new look.  After a few questions from her about the feel I was looking for, I drove to work and she created my new look all the way from New York.  That works for me.  I think it looks fantastic, and frankly I think Claudia should go into business helping the technology challenged bloggers such as myself create the blog they envision, just can't create on their own.  I feel like I just had the best haircut in the world, or I suddenly got into terrific physical shape without even trying.  A whole new me!

What do you think?  If you love it please let me know and let Claudia know, too.  I think she deserves it after all her beautiful work.  Thanks Claudia, if I haven't told you lately I am sure a lucky girl to have you as a sister.

It looks great! I am too scared to try to change mine as I'm worried I will loose it completely! I really should bite the bullet and give it a go!

I think Claudia did a great job. I love it, especially the photos in the header. I am assuming that is your gorgeous doggie in the photo. He looks so sweet. I've always wanted a retriever.

Tell your sis she did a great job! Your new look is very cute :) Sometime this spring I hope to be adventurous and try a new look for mine too! I love all of the little polka dots in the background.

It's great. Fresh and ... green. This colour can't be seen that often these days. I like the dots.

YOu know I Love the new look. I love what you have to say about knowing how to do your own work in life, but not being able to do other things! ! Your gift with babies in need is more important than a techno gift....
