hmmm.... looks like a good way to keep up w/ my knitting habit! christmas presents for next year and something to do on the bus. I've always steered very wide of all straight acrylic (except for a few times when I mixed it with another strand of a nicer, nobby yarn to take away from the ickyness), but those scarfs came out nicely. and I can make a scarf for $4.50! woohoo!
edit: how many stiches did you cast on for the second scarf? I just happen to have 15 size needles (well, cheap-o college student I am, they're dowel rods), but I always have a hard time judging wideness.
those 3M Command hook things work really well to stick stuff to walls non pemently. a little more expensive than double stick tape, but they come off nice and cleanly. you don't have the buy the actual hooks; they sell refills with just the stick tabs. the only problem is that you have to leave the little tabs sticking out, but you probably wouldn't notice it much at all against white and so far away.
just to give an example of why they're so great, I used a 2 lb capacity one to stick a plywood shape to a kind of rough painted plaster wall. it's been up for about five months with no problems. I'm sure I could've used a smaller tab, but I had the 2 lb one left over.
wow! I've never run into people in the same town as me, let alone both places I live! Tyranny, do you know of any places in ann arbor that sell yarn or other crafty stuff? (downtown / campus area mostly... I don't have a car here)
