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.

The good and the bad of it
Well, lets get the bad over with.
I lost my wedding ring Friday afternoon.
Outside of my mom's house, maybe a person/kid took it or maybe an animal. I don't want to get into details but its gone. We are going to borrow a metal detector, its our last hope. I keep sitting here knitting and seeing my hands wondering where it is. Not like I wore it all the time but I certainly miss it now that its gone. Trying not to dwell on it.
Ah, well. The knitting was good and I got to spend a ton of time with the neice and nephew.
I spent so much time with them that I wasn't able to get much done. A little spinning and a little knitting.
33 inches wide and about 15 inches tall. I'm trying to work at least a couple of rows a night. I want to finish it by fall. I have a chance. No, really. I think I can do it.
The back is almost done. I read ahead and looked at all the instructions just to finish up this little stretch of back and put it down yesterday. It won't take long but geez I hate to need to read every row with my patterns. Call me lazy. I guess that's why I often change patterns. This one, I'm doing my best to complete it as is.
Hope you all had a fun fourth. Today is another day off and we are heading out to Shrek 2 which is sure to be packed but I bet we have the 3 most rambunctious kids there.
