Stuff Found While Surfing

First of all, I've added a new page to my blog.  It's a way for me to keep track of places I've visited and you're welcome to check it out here.  You can also click on the Travels icon on the sidebar.

I came across this picture of Super Mario sweaters that was on a Japanese website:

Okay, kind of cute, for kids anyway.  The price is 36,000 Yen.  I checked a currency conversion website and found that, at today's rates, the price is equal to US $468.79 or Cdn $460.72.  The question for knitters is this:  how many of you would go out and buy the yarn, knit one of these sweaters and would be willing to sell it for the bargain price of, oh say, $400.00?  I'd do it in a heartbeat!

Donna (@druchunas) tweeted about this craft...embroidered car doors!  Check them out, here:

On another website I found an identity-hiding balaclava.  Very clever, but how can you see where you're going?  There are more pictures on the website.

I find it interesting to see the ways that creative minds work.  Some people think outside the box and others don't even know that there is a box.

That's some amazing stuff--I especially like the car door. But the balaclava is a little worrisome--I'd be afraid people would think I was trying to rob them! But I do love the idea.
