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.

That title says it all doesn't it? Knots are the scourge of knitters everywhere. Nobody likes them but we all have to deal with them
From the cheapest of Red Heart yarns to the most expensive in the Colinette line, Knots! I know I've read many a rant and why do we have to see these things in our yarn? Yarn deserves to be knot free.
I've had many knots before, but not quite like the one I came upon the other day. Noro has a ton of knots, my cottons have had knots. I've dealt with them all gracefully.
This last knot that I found over the weekend was highly unacceptable. Why? What makes this knot so different from all the others?
The knot was in a ball of my own handspun.
Yes, the yarn that I lovingly create from roving, to dying, to lovingly spinning it into beautiful yarn goodness. Someone must have come in here, in the dead of night and inserted a knot in my handspun! Bastards! How dare they! Some mean spirited little troll is digging around in my yarns.
Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
What did I do over the weekend? Saturday morning we went to the Moxie Parade where I ripped out the pinkish sock and redid it as a toe up.
I finished the blue sock last night when I had gotten to the heel of the pinkish sock and didn't trust my sleepy state to turn a short row heel. I also worked a bit on the Highland Triangle Shawl that I had been ignoring.
I had been working on this along side another KR forumer and she emailed asking how I was doing. My poor little shawl has been sitting here neglected for so long. Maybe I'll bring her to the craft show next weekend and show her a good time. Once I get HiTri done then I can start on CW.
