Knitting Blogger Alert!

Update June 1, 2009
I have stopped offering free blog templates and have taken down the old Faces of Yve site. Sorry!
Update February 4, 2008
The information in the below post is now outdated. I’ve since revamped the free blog templates site and the old stuff is gone. I am in the process of developing new knitting WordPress themes, though, so please go check it out!
Many of you probably know that my other hobby is web design. I worked as a web designer all through college and still make free blog templates for fun. The next issue of my web design ezine is coming out soon, and I thought I’d give you a sneak preview of the knitting-themed templates I have in this issue.
#2: Pointy Sticks
The templates will be available for Blogger, WordPress, and as straight HTML for those who like to muck in code.
Both should be pretty easy to install, even if you don’t know any HTML. If you’re on Blogger, you will need to find some place to host the images—Flickr is a good solution. Complete installation instructions are in the README file.
The new issue of the e-zine will have a couple more templates, some detailed tutorials on writing code for links and images, and web design book reviews. To be notified the instant the new issue goes up, head on over to Faces of Yve and subscribe!
