Although you have a working solution I'd like to tell that you probably forgot to allocate the new category to one of the subweblogs in your weblog definition.
In the case of theme Skinny this is subweblog "standard".
All categories allocated to the subweblogs in a weblog will be shown when using the tag category_list (which is used in _sub_sidebar.tpl).
Quality is in the detail of things............

I can also convert your site to a Wordpress site!
