Go to Google and click on images. Then type in whatever you want (knitting, knitting sheep, etc)

Make sure you save the image to your own hard drive before using them.

I googled frog, and found this frog outline, and filled it in with a dark green knit pattern in my PSP.

After you have saved the image to your pc , you will need to open it in your paint program and resize it to 100pixels x 100pixels and save again, then go into your profile and you can browse for it on your pc and put it as your avatar.

i just doodled mine on paint. If it got too small (which it did) i zoomed in. If you look closely you can see my initials KA in the bottom right corner. :teehee:

I must be a total idiot! I resize and resize and it still says my avatar is too big. So, I will give up and be happy with my name only. Thanks for all the advice...I'm just computer challenged!

I got mine from Google Images. I just googled "cartoon sheep" and I got my avatar.

1knittychick,

It is hard to get them to the 100 x 100 size, in the paint program that comes standard on most computers, I have paint shop pro that I use.
You can email me this avatar you want to use and I can size it down if you would like. Just PM me and I will give you my email info.

My avatar is a crop of I pic I took of my naughty Peanut. It wasn't a setup photo, I found him like that after leaving the room for 2 seconds. Here's what he and his foster brother were up to:
