Now that I've successfully filled up my house with yarn, we had a patio cover installed to create some outdoor space. Would also help blocking rain from coming into the kitchen on stormy days, which we had quite a few this winter. We chose a color that matches the trim of the house, and the cover looks like it's always been there.
Not sure what this will do to the rose bush right under the kitchen window yet. It's now pruned back for the winter, so only time will tell.
