Yarn focus challenge

Have you seen Rebekah's challenge? I just signed up to participate. The details and rules of the challenge are here. Thank goodness we get one free day per month. Yarntopia is opening next week! If all goes as planned, after I purchase my Malabrigo from Amy, I won't be buying yarn for a long, long time.

Now I have to figure out how to make a ticker that's acceptable to me. This one from the Ticker Factory is ok... I wish could find a narrow one to go in my side bar. Even something that simply counts up numerical days would be good--I don't need a slidy thing. Help, hints, suggestions? Please?



Edit: I found this javascript counter. Seems to work ok. I had issues formatting it to look nice on my blog, so I'm still open to suggestions.

Edit 2: reset my ticker for the start of the challenge

I just joined up too. Between this and the stashalong, I think I can do this!

Sounds like a good plan!

Hey, are you watching the show on Alaska on PBS? I thought of you!

Good luck on your yarn diet. Just don't go too crazy on your day off! :)

And here I was thinking you weren't a joiner! I guess joining people in NOT doing something is pretty allowable for a non-joiner.

I'm so jealous of y'all's proximity to Yarntopia. It looks like it's going to be a great store. I hear you're forgoing a catnip-stuffed Tiger to knit a sample item for the store?

(What're you going to use the Malabrigo for?)
