|Based on Kathy's comment on my last post (hi Kathy!), I thought I would put this info out there for anyone who wants it.|
I found the progress bars courtesy of the Knitty Coffeeshop (I can no longer find the original post, of course). I got mine from Unlikely Words, which has a great explanation of how to format them and update them.
You do have to go in and update the percentage numbers when you want them to change, but it only takes a second. I try to update them every day or so, but I'm sort of...um...obsessive about them, which also explains why I like the color of the bar to relate to the color of the knitting project (and be different from any other bar).
