lilyofshalott: (Potterpuffs Remus)

I've been toying with the idea lately of changing my journal layout a bit, namely switching from having a repeating wallpaper-style graphic to a fixed banner at the top of the page. Actually, that's not quite right. I suppose what I'm really pondering is whether to have a top banner and have the rest of the layout be "clean" (i.e. with a solid background, similar to [livejournal.com profile] nentari's layout) or to keep my wallpaper graphic, but no longer have invisible text boxes--or whatever they're called--similar to [livejournal.com profile] gentle_blessing's layout. I'd probably be doing this to my icon journal first as the variety of shades in the wallpaper graphic has made it rather hard for me to choose text colours that actually show up across the page. Of course I would also need to peruse the [livejournal.com profile] howto comms to find the proper coding and suchlike. Thoughts? Ideas?

Oh, and a quiz! I know I've taken this before, but I don't think I've ever actually posted it.

Which Mix of the Hogwarts Houses are You? )



In knitting news, I'm nearly halfway through mitteny-mitt the second! Yay! (I shall post pictures of the pair when both are done.) Once I finish it I'll be able to start on Extermaknit! (same needles) for the [livejournal.com profile] who_knits Good vs Evil Knit-along. Since Daleks count for Evil, I'll have to join Team Evil. ::laughs:: I plan on switching sides as soon as I finish the knitted Dalek of Awesome, however, and making Rose's Doomsday mitts (must.learn.cabling.), finishing my cuddly TARDIS, possibly making a jelly baby or two (no, seriously), and possibly a scarf.

Which brings me to my next question (I already brought this up on [livejournal.com profile] who_knits, but I figured since many of you lovely people on my flist are Who fans, knitters, or both . . .): The Fourth Doctor's scarf is quite iconic and suchlike, but what scarves would the other Doctors wear? How about Companion-y scarves? Ten's already covered, actually--[livejournal.com profile] chili_dance posted a WIP picture of a fantastic Tenth Doctor scarf.

And I think it's quite safe to say this post got away from me. Just a bit (hee). Well, I'm off to get ready for bed and do a bit of reading--we're doing Diane Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale for book club this month and I'm rather enjoying it so far. ^_^
