I’m on the move

I’m moving away from my wordpress hosted system. I’ve been wanting that for so long and now the time has come. Don’t worry, for you only one small thing changes. Also very nice is, that I can install now plugins that make my blogger life easier (Plugins are additional modules that give the blog more functions).

So far, I have had to set parts of my posts in German and then I wrote the English translation. This is a bit awkward for the readers, they had to skip a section in order to continue reading.

I changed that. Now I can create my posts in two languages ​​so that you can easily read the article – only in English or only in German. Have a look to the sidebar on the left, there is a small box with “Language”. If you click underneath, you can easily switch the blog post to the language you prefer.

It took a few months to set it all up. Especially the separation of the language from the previous blog posts took a long time. For the moving and the new installation, I got support from a very good programmer (Gevorg Setiani, DSC web design) who also patiently explained to me all the terms of the computer language.

Soon there will be another Amigurumi from me, here is the preview:

The rabbit is crocheted in one piece and is therefore not suitable for beginners. I am currently writing the pattern and I’m looking for crocheters who would like to test the design.
If you are already comfortable with crocheting Amigurumi and feel like testing this rabbit, contact me (k.germanida@gmx.de), I will send you the pattern.
So, see you soon,
Karin

Daddy is expecting a baby

Can a man get pregnant?
Yes … – if it is a seahorse. Seahorses are the only animals in the world where males carry babies. When two seahorses find each other, a long love and romantic dance begins. They rub their cheeks together and hold hands, oops, I mean they hook their tails together. Then the female puts her eggs in the belly pocket of the male. Once fully developed, they hatch and go foraging by themselves.
