New Look!


Knitted Bliss has got a brand new look! It’s long overdue- as much as I loved my old blog look and layout, it was time for something fresh. The tabs are the biggest change- you’ll find information on specific features in the tabs, and you can find me on Pinterest, Twitter, Ravelry, and Flickr on the little round buttons in the top right.

The tutorial tab is functional, but I’m not 100% with how it’s playing out just yet. Right now only the Upcycled Cardigan is listed there, but I’m planning on more in the future, which will likely change how things are organized on that tab.  Other than that, it’s how I’d envisioned!  Big thanks to Guy, who did the heavy lifting on the technical bits, like those pretty tabs that change colour when you hover your cursor over them.  

For my fellow Canadians, happy Canada Day! and for all the non-Canadians, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Doesn't it feel great to have a face-lift for your blog?... and a little nerve-wracking, too? We can feel so attached to our original look but an update is always a fun thing. I love what you've done!

That must have been a lot of work- hope you can relax and enjoy a very Happy Canada Day! :->

I love the new look! I'd also like to thank you for taking the time and creating the blog. I started knitting just under two years ago and found your blog a year and half ago. You have inspired me.

Happy Canada!!

I thought I was in the wrong spot for a minute! Change is always fun but it does take a bit of time to get used to so as long as your content stays the same, I'm here to stay too.

Excellent re-design! It's clean, fresh and tight. The tabs are noticeable, but not obtrusive. The background is classic, but not dated. And the smaller, sleek Verdana font? What's not to love?! Well done, G! And the updated pic of you, Julie, is professional and charming. Great teamwork :-)
