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.

Chicken bones in my cheerios.
That was one of my gifts from husbeast.
Well, a bracelet rendition of chicken bones in cheerios.
See what I mean? Its all pewter and made by an artisan from the craft fair. The artists name is John Fouquart and his business is Pewterpotter. There is no web address for him that I can find. Its a pity because his stuff is awesome.
One fish, two fish, blue fish....
I collect fishies so Husbeast got me this too. I wish I knew the name on this. Maybe someone will remember.
I actually told him he spoils me. I know I shouldn't admit that directly to him but it did make him smile. I think he intends to spoil me.
Do you know what you find at the fork in the road?
Besides a goofy boogie
Morehouse merino. Husbeast liked the store too. There are refreshments and a place to hang out for the non-knitting SO's. If you ever get a chance to go, you need to. Seriously, I wouldn't kid you, this place is a must see store. We walked around for quite some time. Beautiful yarns, kits and patterns. I feel inspired to spin singles lace yarn. In fact that's what I'm working on.
That's the roving I got and I also ordered a pattern. Lola. I don't usually like short sleeve sweaters but I had to have this one. Its amazing. They didn't have the pattern finished yet so I can't even link you to a picture or anything. If I had half a mind I would have asked to take a picture. I bet you could email them and get more info. If you want to know anymore about how fab it was, the sample was in orange and husbeast liked it (he hates orange).
Enough photos for one day? I hope to have one more thing to show you tomorrow. I'm off to get going with my busy day.
