I'm Ready to Have Something on the Needles

I haven't had anything on the needles in a few weeks, since I finished this:


Like the error right there in the middle? It's my nod to the Amish. ;-) I know you are also in awe of my ghetto lace blocking style. It works, though. This scarf was super-easy. It's just two repeats of the tilting blocks stitch pattern. I did around 30 repeats. The yarn is Filatura di Crossa, I can't remember the colorway, but it's a nice autumnal blend of rusts and olive-y greens. It's for my mom, as soon as I get it in the mail...

We had another contest on the SeoulPodcast, and here was the grand prize:

Not one, but two earpickers, an Englice dictionary, a "V-line" face massager, Korean stickers, some socks with gambling card images on them, and some random Korean candies.

We had Halloween at work this week. I forgot to take my camera one day, but here are a few kids from Wednesday.

I went to Yuldong Park to check out the foliage this past weekend. It was definitely not a date. :-( It was fun, anyway.

If you look closely, you can see that the bungee jump faces a huge church (above and slightly to the left of my head).




Don't know what it is? Me, either.


Even the port-a-potties are nice. :-)

When was the second contest? Did I just space that one?

You must have-- it was over several weeks and ended at the beginning of the month. You had to tell in 25 words or less why you would be a better leader for NK can Kim Jong Il. Don't worry, I have a stash of deco earpickers waiting for the next giveaway. ;-)
