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.

Welcome to Swatch-town USA
Population: 1 Crazy lady
Have I mentioned before how much I hate to swatch?
I hate to swatch.
I’m doing swatches anyway. I needed to. I spent a good part of my weekend making sweater drawings, charts and of course the swatches. I’m thinking of sending a couple of designs out to magazines. I’m not sure what makes me think I could be published but you never know unless you try. Like Gretsky has said “the shot not taken will not score 100% of the time.”
I got some work done on other projects too. Husbeast was sad that so few of you voted for him in the poll. We had a discussion about his sweater that I’m working on in Lamb’s Pride Bulky. It was suppose to have all these cables all over it and just seemed so thick. This man is hot all the time and I couldn’t imagine him wearing a sweater that thick. I tinked back and have decided to do a plain stockinette sweater. Maybe I’ll add a cable at the arm or something.
I got the back done to my poncho and am about halfway up on the front. I really want to finish this before I head out to NY this weekend. Did I mention that Anj is coming up to the craft show to meet me. I’m absolutely giddy. Of course you can’t tell because words don’t show giddy so well.
I did nothing on Pia. I’ll take her, the bathing suit and some socks to work on in NY. I'll pack too much and maybe take along some swatches to do as well. I'm hoping as usual to at least get some socks done. They are great driving knitting.
Thank you all for your compliments on the yarn. I'm not sure I'll have much more new yarn this week. My pottery is packed for the show but I have little relatives here that I haven't seen in a long long time so I'll be slacking spending time with them if I can.
