Finished Scarf!



I finished my first knitting project, a scarf. I got this lovely yarn at Loop, in Philadelphia. I have 2.5 skeins lefts (out of the 5 I bought), so I think I am going to make a hat to go with the scarf. Steph took this lovely photo for me of the finished product; isn't it sweet how she wrapped it around a butternut squash?

Speaking of Steph, she has joined the world of blogging-- you should all go and read her blog on a regular basis. Read, comment, and be sure to answer her bizarre polls!!!

In other news, I am conducting an experiment. Starting tomorrow, we are not going to go out to eat for one month. I want to see if we eat better, how much money we save, and also I just want to prove to myself that I can eat at home for a month and not feel deprived of anything. I usually enjoy the food I make at home more than the food I eat out, so that's not the issue. The issue is that I get lazy and don't feel like cooking and/or cleaning up after a meal. Plus there is the social aspect, but I'm sure our friends can survive eating at our house for a meal or cooking for us for one month.

Love the scarf! It's very pretty. I'm not sure what Steph was trying to say with the phallic presentation though!
