Hole-y Scarf!

Dear Shayne,

WOW. This week, I finally finished knitting a scarf that I have been fooling around with for... oh, at least 3 years (!!!) I posted an in-progress shot of it on our blog back in Sept '07, and it looks like I first mentioned it on Ravelry in July of that year.

I say again: WOW.

Hole-y scarf!

I have, of course, completed many other projects during that time. I just couldn't get into working on this one -- tiny needles and a somewhat tedious pattern. But now that it's done, I'm happy with it. (And, also, happy to be done with it.)

What are you working on these days?

Awesome backyard project

Dear Shayne,

Unfortunately, I don't think we have the room for this in our backyard (since the trampoline takes up most of the room back there), but I just had to share it with you because, well it's Pure Awesome:

Aw, yeah! Outdoor larger-than-life Scrabble set! You could sort of get exercise while playing this thing!

I got these photos from this article in at the Sunset website, where you can find the DIY details if you have the room to make this in your backyard. Check out the tiles:


Perhaps I need a smaller trampoline?
