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.

Korner Knitters and a small contest
Once again I forgot to bring the camera with me. Silly me. And we had a good time. First stop was Korner Knitters in Standish. I did a little bit more than just look around. But like I said I added a couple new people to the sock gift list. Its justified, really it is.
This shop is a great little shop. Packed in every little nook and cranny is yarn. They have the higher end yarns all the way down to Paton's (which I really like). There was plenty of novelty yarns and a few specialty yarns that I hadn't seen. They had a few sock yarns that my LYS doesn't carry. I knew they were out there because I had seen them online, but seeing them up close made them highly desireable. There also was a new yarn , Anna sock yarn, that I hadn't heard of before, very pretty.
There were some nice samples knit up and a modest stock of buttons that kept M occupied for a good long time. The staff was friendly too. They were sweet to M and that is always a plus in my book. I hate it when stores are poops to kids. It was also nice that the owner (I think she's the owner anyway) admitted to be a sock knitting freak like me. She had cute little fixation socks, I must have a pair, I thought. It's a store like that, that makes it hard to walk out without anything.
So in keeping with the sock loving spirit, I've got a small contest for you. Its sock yarn and that's always a good thing. I have a nice skein of Sockotta here that will make one pair of socks. I've done 2 pairs from other colorways and they are such a nice feeling material. What do you need to do? Guess at how many sock projects I walked out of Korner Knitters with. I got more than 0 but less than 10. Email me with your guess, my address is on my side bar. I'm sure more than one of you will guess the same thing so of course M will pick the winner out of a hat. I'll announce the winner on Thursday. This would be fabulous for the making waves pattern that is now out for the Six Sock knit along
