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.

Want a pain sandwich?
I have a neighbor, sweet older lady, who has had a couple of strokes. She used to knit a ton but now all she makes are the most beautiful lopsided dishcloths. Every now and then she will come across some of her old yarn and will send it over to me. Yesterday she sent over a pain sandwich of yarn.
I'm not sure why the bag says that and its definitely printed on there. I’m sure if you ate the bag of hot red acrylic, you would be in pain. It’s a soft acrylic that will be good for a little M sweater.
I laid the back out which has the shoulders on holders so it looks a bit funny. I also started to add the fringe because I couldn’t help myself. The front is laid on top so I can see how far I have to go. I’m starting my last ball of yarn. Elann had a glitch in their system over the weekend so my yarn didn’t go out the minute I ordered it like it usually does. They called yesterday and I should have it Thursday, so I can be adding fringe before I leave for the weekend. Do you like my teal toenails?
