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 horror has ended!
For those of you that you that were horrified by my lack of WIP's and specifically my lack of sock WIP's, I would like to announce to you that I am working on 2 socks - yes, 2!
It gets better. Hang on, you may fall out of your chairs. These 2 are also.....Christmas presents for the family. Are you still there? Did you spill your coffee? No? Well, I figured I'd be the only one that excited. See, I've got coffee all over me now and I need to pour another cup.
The blue blob is a toe up sock in my handspun "vintage denim" colorway. Do I sound pretensious naming each color? I rarely do them twice. Now that's got me thinking. Hmmm. Oh right, the other sock, I have the attention span of a gnat. How sad is it that it shows in my writing? The red/orange/yellow/black is Sokotta. I'm not sure who each sock will be for and I'm not going to give it up anyway. You never know who is reading. Now I sound paranoid. That's me paranoid and pretensious. Lock me up, but don't take away my yarn.
I've been doing more and more spinning. I'm excited to be starting on another sweater soon. That means I'll be spinning up 2 sweaters at once, a first for me. One on Bettie and one on Marylin. I also will be spinning up an extra skein for a friend and after that, more socks. I hope to have some real progress to show next week. Eeeps, I just read all that and I've got alot to do. I best quit dawdling.
I leave you for the weekend with a tip.
If a store marks down hair dye from $8 to $2.50, there is a reason.
It may not be the bargain you think it is.
