This would be rope. I like the colors after all, but yeah, it's rope. Although I do have some ideas about how I can use it, so no loss, I guess.

And if you haven't heard the news, go over to Stephanie's, read her October 2nd entry, and congratulate her--she finished Book Book Book #4 and made Joe an honest man, all in the space of a weekend.

She's got more get up and go than I have, that's for sure.
