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.

Spin me around
Did I ever show you how spinning gets done around here?
M likes to help, but M wants to watch TV or read books too.
Big helper huh? She gives me a serious case of the giggles most days.
So what have I been spinning. Still Mandy red. I tried to do plying on my new wheel but I'm afraid it takes a bit more finagling and I want all her yarn to come out the same so I'm going to have to continue on with the smaller skeins.
My other spinning projects include coming up with a yarn to make M a long jacket. She loves her new robe so much I thought she might like a lonk bulky cardi. So I keep dying and spinning up samples. Not to mention that i enjoy dying roving and spinning it. I can't seem to stop myself somedays. I do it even if I know I'll never use the stuff.
If you clicky you get to see a bigger view
I'm selling them off or giving them away until I come up with the right combo for M, or until I can curb my habit. I'm also selling off a few more stashed yarns. The deal is if I can get rid of some, I can buy more, right? I'll continue to put things on ebay if you are interested at all.
Have I mentioned how much I love spinning on Marilyn (the indian head spinner)? She is a dream to spin on and the yarn comes out so nice. I'm thinking of making so many things with singles now. There is just something so tempting about a nicely spun worsted weight single. I'm getting weak in the knees just thinking about it.
Thanks for the well wishes about the ring. It's gone and I'm beginning to accept it and be ok with it. It's silly to be attached to material things even if they do have sentimental value. At least I didn't lose J. Remind me not to leave him sitting outside alone.
Honeymoon is not the pain sandwich. Its Bernat Satin yarn. Interesting and cheap, but I like it none the less.
