Um, hi. So this morning I had about 200 profile views to my credit. Now I have over 700. Yipes.

First off, thank you to all the great blogs posting about this. Little ole me isn't used to so much internet attention, but THANK JEBUS it's for something good. It's so awesome that my favorite magazine Craft posted this and even cooler that smart blogs (um, hello, Mental Floss anyone?) are talking about it, too. I better double check my grammar...

Secondly, people have started asking a few questions about things that I haven't covered in any posts yet so I think I'll have to make an FAQ post or something of that nature pretty soon. If you have questions, you can email them to themarioscarf [at] gmail [dot] com. Also, all you experienced knitters out there, feel free to offer advice. I've already gotten a few tips that I think will help, but I'm still a relative n00b in the knitting world.

Well, that's all I can say at the moment. I've been working as a nanny over the summer and blogging during the day comes few and far between. I'll post something about the actual scarf later this evening.

Have you considered the idea of devoting a little more time to nerd scarves and selling them as a business? I know plenty of people who'd buy a Mario map scarf.

I'd sort of have to second that nerd scarf deal. I already got a Megaman Blanket off Punzie from Etsy and I'd definitely be inclined (unable not to) buy a Mario scarf.

Damned clever idea. Good show :)
