I really love the nifty knitting blogs I see some Mamas keeping. Particularly the project progress graphics in the margins (where there will be multiple projects listed, with a little graphic underneath with a bar saying "20% finished" or whatever). Where'd you all get those? I have a blog already through blogspot, but I didn't see anything like that. Is it something you have to pay for? I really like the "tracking" aspect, I find it inspires me to keep working when I hit that "oh my god I'm so sick of looking at this purple yarn" wall. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I got mine of off a friend's site (leigh at woolflowers.net) and she got it from anothe rblogger. it's jsut a java script, I think. Here's the code to mine, I think all you'd need to change is the percentage # and the link to your project:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>

Awesome!! Thank you so much, I've been trying to get those progress bars in my blog for months now and couldn't figure it out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

no problem! I just saw one today (can't even remember where it was now, dang!) that had little sweaters and scarves instead of the plain bars. and the sweater and/or scarf got filled the % you were completed. VERY cool!!<br><br>
edited to add: found the cool one, here's the script: <a href="http://www.indigirl.com/knit_tracker/" target="_blank">http://www.indigirl.com/knit_tracker/</a>

I pretty much have it figured-out. I put my blog back in my siggie...something funny going on in the margins but overall it looks all right. I have zero patience for programming language <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> so I give up for now.
