The colors are just ever-so-slightly less vibrant, but really, it's only noticeable if I hold the leftover yarn next to it.
Now, can somebody with a brain tell me why my pictures are consistently cut off on the right side in blogger? I LIKE the medium size. I DON'T WANT to use the small size, it looks like a thumbnail and it's annoying!
This has been driving me crazy for months, and I would gladly sacrifice right column width to make it right! (It looks fine in Preview, it's the column width that needs tweaking. I considered changing templates, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't make a difference.)
