I'm not terribly tech savvy, and for a while was just like - what are those groovy little pictures folks have? When I finally decided to add one, I was just playing with the digital camera, taking pictures of yarn. This one just looked peaceful - and that's what knitting is to me - quiet and peaceful.

That is, except when I'm working on that ##@*!! lace project for the july KAL!... But I am determined!

Generally, if you can click on it with your mouse, you can use it for an Avatar.

Mine is a cartoon of what I look like. Sort of. I don't have long hair anymore. And I hope that I am taller and cuter.

Rules? Use common sense and you should be fine. Remember that this is a public forum and all ages can view it so nothing that you couldn't share with your family. I believe the images are uploaded to KH so I don't think bandwidth is an issue, but I'm not sure. I save them to my HD and then upload them.

I found a little penguin (my collectable) named Pookie (my nickname by my best friend -- no, I don't know why.... never asked)... but wasn't sure if I could use him or if I would be violating some law and the Pookie gods would come slap some legal thing on me.... ??
I'd say that you should choose something that represents you, your mood that day, something you love, your favorite thing in the whole world, or just some random picture that you like. And if you're worried about the Pookie gods, stick something in your profile about where you got the pic :P

If you find one out there in internet land, right click on it and save image as to your desktop. That way there you always have it and can stick it wherever you want.

:rofling: no, no, nothing obscene... just wonder about copyright, etc.... PLUS, what I could share w/MY family would stretch decency to the limit!! :rofling: We are very unconventional....

OK,, when I get a few minutes (can you believe that I actually have to work while I am here??) I am going to put Pookie up, and will do as suggested and have a link set up in my profile to where I got him... then see if I get smacked with a cease and desist... or whatever.

My avatar is my pooch Crash. I've also used childhood pics of myself, a pic of Chow Yun Fat and a picture of Justin from Blue October... I like to change mine from time to time. Ooo... and we had rubber duckies last year. They were cool.

Mine is a painting that my DH did of me almost 20 yrs. ago. My last one was my granddaughter. I hope it's not too revealing.
