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.

I’ve been making so much yarn lately I’m going nuts. Get it Yarnitorium – sanitorium. Maybe I am going crazy. Click on the pics if you want to see a larger photo.
Those little silk flowers are spun right in. This was such a fun experiment. Everything I see now, I wonder if I can spin it up with my yarns. *edit*I just realized someone may want to know how I did it. flowers don't stay magically and I know many of you can figure it out on your own. I used a needle and coordinating thread, and poked through the base of the flower. I left about a 6-8 inch string and centered the flower. The thread took a bit of work to work into the wool so it was more hidden. Over spin it a bit so that when you ply the thread doesn't totally unwind. I think little M needs a pink sweater with flowers all over it.
A whole bunch of single thick and thins. I can spin these all day and could essentially clean out my fiber stash in this manner. This stuff is just super fun to make.
I’m still working on Mandy red. I now have 25% of it done. The more I spin this stuff, the more I want to knit with it.
Next on my fiber fun list. Felted yarn. Not felting after its knit, but felting prior. Ann just did that and I think it sounds like fun. Especially banging the snot out of the yarn. I want to try it right away but I may just save it for a time when I need to get out some frustrations.
