Ok, I have mostly restored my side bar, but I still need to put my blog ring codes back in, once I figure out where to find them again. I'm gonna try the black motif for a while and see how I like it. And, if anyone knows how to successfully find and add new templates on Blogger, please comment and let me know. That's how I got myself in this mess, I had no idea what I was doing and forgot rule #1, always save your current template.
Anywho, I'll update on the knitting tomorrow, as I almost have the second sock done, and it should take me no time at all, as Katherine jokings that I have "turbo jet fingers".
