A Yarn Holder!

Happy Chuseok everyone! This is the Korean's version of Thanksgiving, and they have 3 days off from work (plus the weekend). I go back to work on Thursday, and then have the weekend off; normally I'd be working 3 classes on Saturday, but there are no classes this Saturday or next.

Well, five of us went to Chonan yesterday and took in a movie. It was in English with Korean subtitles, and was actually an Irish film called "Once". I didn't find there was much plot to the movie, though the music was really good. I'd like to see if there is a soundtrack for it.

While in Chonan, we looked around for a craft shop but were unsuccessful. I'm sure there must be some kind of crafts stores around here, but we don't know where to look or how to ask. I might be resigned to ordering yarn and stuff online and paying shipping (some places don't have terribly high shipping costs, so that's promising). Anyway, I thought you all might be interested in what I found (in Chonan) to keep my yarn supply in...just need to figure out how to get it here and where to store it...
This is located handy to the art gallery. We went to the gallery too, and quite honestly...I didn't get it. Maybe I'm not cultured enough, but I wasn't impressed by the few exhibits they had. Nothing made sense to me, and quite honestly (in my opinion) was a waste of 3,000 Won (which works out to about $3 Canadian/American).

I've done more work on my scarf and it has grown some. I have a feeling it will take a little while to do because of the smaller size needles. I will keep plugging away at it though as I think it will look nice when it's done. I've noticed a mistake in it, but from one side it isn't really noticeable. I'm not ripping back to fix it though...too far back for me. If I was doing it in larger size needles and on thicker yarn I probably would.

Well, just wanted to show you my yarn storage bag and let you know I'm still knitting. I'm slowly making my way around blogland again, and catching up on everyones latest knitting adventures!
