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.

Bye Bye Olympics
Hello Republican Convention.
Quite a change in TV viewing. While I find the Olympics far more entertaining to knit to, I'll still watch some of the convention. Who knows, maybe there will be some exciting points. I would knit faster during the close races and beach volleyball or just stop knitting altogether and hold my breath during some of the gymnastics. Maybe some of the speeches or the protestors can make me feel the same way.
What did I knit during the Olympics other than what you already saw? I've been working on that mystery sweater. I really like it and I almost can't wait to wear it, but I have to finish the sleeves and well, they're sleeves. Blegh. And just so I can continue living in sleeve hell, I cast on for a sweater for little M. I cast on the sleeves.
I can't decide if I like the stitch pattern I chose. Actually as I type this, I'm ready to admit that I'm about to frog the first sleeve done. I'm working on the second one maybe I'll do that one in a different pattern and then choose. Hmmmm. Do you like how I'm writing the thoughts as they pop into my head?
I also finished a sock and cast on for the second one.
Other than that, I've been spinning. I've actually been spinning allot. Far more than I've been knitting. I want another scolf in a different pattern and I'm also spinning for other bigger projects like Lola.
