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.

You know what I'm talking about right? You forget your home phone number or what street you live on. Forget how old your child is. Forget the name of your pet. It happens to most of us, even the perfect folks out there. Brain farts are different than CRS syndrome (can't remember shit). Brain farts are silly momentary lapses in memory of things that you should remember.
My little brain fart had to do with the kitchener stitch. Yes, the kitchener stitch. How many socks have I made? I felt like an idiot. Sitting here needle and sock in hand, just staring at it not knowing what to do. Blank. Completely blank. I suppose this is what I get for making 3 socks toe up. After googling kitchener stitch, I went, oh yeah, duh. I'm not sure how I forgot. I hope I don't forget how to purl or something.
I took a nap after finishing that sock. Forgeting took a lot out of me.
The pink one is a Miss M sock int he cover rib. It has a garter heel, I'm not pleased with the look of it, but I was told that they last longer because they stretch better with a growing gals foot. the other one is the sockotta, looks odd, but it fits well.
I finished these on Friday. Its my first xmas FO - can I get cheer? "hip hip hooray!". Its my handspun, done toe up with a short row heel and the leg is all 2x2 ribbing.
That exercise spinner is a trip huh? You know I'm going to yard sales looking for an exercise bike now.
The show is over and went well. I'll talk about that more later this week. Right now, I'm still trying to catch up.
