Winter Sky Wingspan

Quick - get in a post before February has gone!

My DD received from Secret Santa the Wingspan pattern and some white and grey yarn with sequins to make it with. She made it and called it "Winter is come" (as a sort of quote from Game of Thrones) as the yarn looks like clouds and snow and the sequins are the sparkly bits in the snow (when there is enough sunlight to make them sparkle!). I looked at this and remembered I had bought some similar-coloured yarn (no sequins) a few years back, intending to make a hat for DS's then girlfriend, but then had made the hat out of a plainer grey yarn (pic under Hats - May 2011). They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, whatever, I decided I'd do one too and as the yarn is sort of winter sky colours I decided to call it Winter Sky Wingspan. Mine is two triangles shorter than DD's, so a bit short for an adult, but would be fine for a girl.
[In original post: And at this point I was going to put in a picture, but the facility for uploading a photo from one's computer has disappeared. This happened before when I was using Internet Explorer, but then DD suggested going back to Google Chrome, as this is a Google blog, which seemed to make sense and indeed, yes, there was the facility. Now it seems to have disappeared even when using Chrome. So, I'm going off in a little huff now and will come back sometime and see if it has become possible again and if so, edit this post.]

Added on 9 March 2013: and now it seems to be possible add a photo again, although the method seems to be slightly different. Why do they have to keep changing things?
