Help Me Pick a Color

I've only just recently learned about The Yarn Pirate. I probably shouldn't even tell you because you just might check out her handpainted sock yarn and buy it all without leaving me one, single skein. I know the likes of you! But look at this yumminess. And I know you are probably wondering, "This chick hasn't even knit one sock, let alone a pair. Why does she want sock yarn?" And that's ok.

I want sock yarn because of this stuff called Storm:

And I want sock yarn because of this stuff called Sadie:


And, well, if you can't understand that, I'm sorry. I'm really trying to be a sock knitter. I've even gotten my gauge ready for my first pair, tonight! My son has an appointment tonight and I have to fill my time for 50 minutes.

So anyway, Storm or Sadie? Sadie or Storm? I have to buy soon!

And another question: How do I put up a wallpaper up as my background for my blog? It took me forever to get my blog as "orderly" as it is now. But I'd like a little change and I would love to have a little more color. So, if any of you out there know html codes or know somewhere that I can go, please direct me!

Oooohhh, if I had to pick, I'd pick Sadie. They're both so pretty though. Let me know how the first sock goes. I'm happy to help if I can.

Sadie. It looks more unusual.

I love them both, but Storm has been calling my name since I first saw it, so I'll vote for that one. :) No worries about me running off and stealing it... I need to save money for a fwe more Christmas presents, and the STR sock club. ;D

I just stumbled upon your blog for the first time, and I enjoyed my stay! I noticed your 100 item to-do list, and I just wanted to say that if you really want to breastfeed you absolutely CAN DO IT!! It's all about making up your mind and finding the support you need. I like the "Breastfeeding & Lactation Consultant" messageboard at iVillage.com. Congratulations on the up-coming arrival.
