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.

The Official Tally
Thanks for all your help.
I had a couple people tell me to do what would make me happy.
What would make me happy is to be able to do it all right now. I didn’t put anything on that list that I didn’t want to do. Things like the husbeast sweater and a couple of WIP’s I was avoiding, but if they had won out, it might have given me motivation or I would have just ignored your votes.
Right after I finished the little cardi for M, I started on the one project that I neglected to list. The poncho. I’m making it up as I go. Its my mindless knitting project but I'm not sure I like the mindless look of it. If it doesn’t look good on me or I can't avoid mirrors, then I can rip it or give it away.
The other thing I cast on for on Sunday night. I took a look at the votes and figured this would either win out or tie for the win. I was stuck on the idea of doing a sweater with this yarn but once I set my thoughts free, I realized it would work really well as Pia from Rowan 35. I cast on the small size and then ripped it out thinking its just too small, so I cast on medium and kicking myself in the head (which wouldn’t be easy if I weren’t so darn limber) I ripped it out and cast on again in small. I’m tired of having these things turn out too big and if its too small then I guess its incentive to lose weight. So after 3 cast ons, that’s what I’ve gotten completed.
I’m feeling really motivated now to start the next sweater – funky black (which got 2nd place), I don’t have a better name for it yet, yes it needs a better name. Once you see its fabulousness (I wish I could take a snap shot of the picture in my head) you will agree it needs a cool name.
Before I start that I am working on a project with my friend Fantastic Anj. Why? Because it’s a project best done before the summer ends. We are making bikini’s. I’m a little shocked myself that I’m thinking of wearing one of these. I need to start doing more pilates or make a matching full body sarong. We’ll be using the pattern from Rebecca (its free online). I tried to start reading the pattern last night but I couldn’t access the pattern. Maybe I’ll show you the horror that is me in a bikini or save it as a scary Halloween prank. Maybe you'll get lucky and you'll get photo of it on my dress form.
