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. 🙂

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

  2. 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. 😉
