Nice work so far!!!! And I love that header. I also agree with Artlady. Maybe just making the font bigger will be the "right" answer. Also, when you fix the text issue in the navigation, you may want to also consider making the boxes in the drop-down navigation the same width. I think it will give it a cleaner look.
Other than that, I think the look is great!!
One other thing too. It looks like you're embedding images from other sites. For example in the Yarn Harlot post, it looks like you embedded the image (which is dead) from http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/images/YH-mainhead.gif
. You really shouldn't be doing it that way because it constitutes bandwidth theft. (Of course this is assuming that 1. Yarn Harlot didn't give you permission and 2. You're not Yarn Harlot
). You're using *her* server & bandwidth allowance to display an image on *your* site. Yarn Harlot is essentially paying to display the image on your site. I think it's better developer etiquette to save the image to your own server (with permission of course
) and embed it from there. For example, it looks like you did that in your "Color Fun" post with http://anotherlongyarn.zinalee.net/w...colorwheel.png
I hope you're not offended. But I just wanted to point that out because bandwidth isn't free. And when you consider how popular a site is (and visited internationally by millions of people), I imagine bandwidth theft can get expensive. :(
...one more thing ... there's no way to contact you from your site
