Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Holy cheese batman
Good xmas parties. Jay's Family last night and mine today. They were both very nice. Moira made out like a bandit of course. But she wasn't totally overloaded like she had been in past years.
I brought my dad's socks with me last night and I got the short row heel completed and then petered out. So after the gifting this morning I continued and even brought the sock with me to my parents. I finished the kitchner toe just before we were to start eating. So I quickly wrapped it up and threw it into my parents present basket. It was nice to see mom and dad both immediately don their socks. Dad was really happy and mentioned how much he had always wanted his mom to make him socks but she refused to, saying they were too hard. So I promised to make him more if he liked these. I like making socks and I don't really think they are hard to make especially since I keep a pair to work on constatnly while I do other projects.
Somedays I am amazed at the time I seem to have to get stuff done, but other times I am disappointed in my complete lack of energy and feeling like a slug. I've got to try and find something to help bring my energy level up. Well, I plan on starting to knit for xmas 2004 soon. I need to make xmas stockings. I think I'm going to do some felted fair isle ones. I'll post patterns to share once I get working on them and I'd like to have a few things made to just have on hand for emergency gifts or for next years festivities. I need to make Lisa's baby present too. At the moment I have cast on for the first sleeve of Sonnet. I spent tonight working on Sonnet weaving in ends and crocheting around the hem and neckline on the body. I swatched for Jay's sweater and got this opinion on what he wants so I will write that soon. I really like bulky lambs pride and now I really want to buy that 10 skeins of Loden. For my take-along, small project I will cast on for my mom's nose-pickin gloves.
