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.

Smart People Against Naughty Knitters
I’m not smart so I have no idea who these people might be. I do know what kind of naughty they are against. Knitters shouldn’t drink and knit. I’ve seen this a few times over other blogs. I can knit and drink, no really, I can. Margaritas make for fun knitting so long as you don’t have any fancy maneuvers you need to do, like anything other than straight knitting with no increasing or decreasing. I do want to caution folks though. Don’t try this at home. Drinking causes your inhibitions to slip away making you think that that you can work on fairisle lace, standing on your head drinking from a straw. If you can do that, take a photo. That's something I need to see.
I guess what I’m trying to tell you is that I didn’t get a whole hell of a lot done last night. I didn't get drunk, just one drink to loosen the needles. It was also enough that I know better than to knit too much lest I screw up and have more to do the next day. It’s been a weird couple of days here in swatch-town. No I haven’t left swatch-town. You can find me in the center of town dipping my toes in the frog pond. I'll be the lady with the crazy look in her eyes.
I did kill my LYS credit yesterday. I got cascade to finish the funky black sweater project, now named "Sublime" and I got a bunch of Catania as it was cheap cheap cheap.I now have 3-4 tank projects ahead of me. Maybe I should be working on Pia. See how well I listen to you all? I did get some sock yarn, but nothing you haven't seen.
No pictures once again. Husbeast sweater is black and my poncho is just, well, its a poncho. Not very thrilling. I could show you the empty margarita glass. But that would mean I would have to get up out of my chair.
I feel bad for your eyes, who wants to read a bunch of crap. I'll show you a crappy pic of some tiles that I did. Its the same thing as I did on the teapot commission, which was picked up yesterday and they were very happy with it.
I took pictures of my teapot process with the idea that I would show how much work goes into it. Eventually I'll have a web page for it and you may wonder why a teapot is so cheap. Ok so now I'm just rambing. Happy Tuesday.
