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.

Holy spike, Batman!
I've had a huge spike in blog traffic. Its gone from around 100 per day to over 500. I never track this stuff even though I have the meter, but I kept getting a slew of random emails regarding the boogie bra , so I had to look. OMG! I'm sorry that I kept this thing to myself for so long. I didn't know it would mean so much to so many. I'm glad to be making boobies happy everywhere.
I never made it out to the galleries yesterday. My mom suggested we look for cloth and since I had a few things to find I went and pretty much spent the majority of the day on a fabric hunt. I got a bunch a few new fabrics for the fall season. These are just the exciting ones, there are a few others that are slated for embroidery or whatnot.
I'm also working on new designs for bags for the fall. I'm totally in love with the one I'm working on now. But you all will have to wait a bit before I unveil it. Its not completely finished and I need to work the bugs out of my pattern.
Maybe today I'll actually get up to the Galleries but I have no more money for the knitting stores. I still may stop in just to have a look around.
My making waves sock is sad. I was close to starting the toe decreases and stopped to look at the size and all and realized that the ankle was far bigger than I anticipated. So a froggin' we went. I'm now decreasing more and plugging away.
I've been dying up a storm too. I'm not allowing myself to play with any of the new stuff until I finish Mandy red, which should be soon. So in the mean time I leave you on this Friday with some pretty colored rovings.
Left; Olive and hot pink superwash merino, Middle; Crock pot dyed orange pink and a hint of red, Right; blue, purple and limey green Romney that will hopefully spin up into stripes.
Have a fun weekend
