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's got to be 2 of the happiest words when I have a package.
This was from a contest that I won over at Teresa's Place
Believe it or not fans, this is my first ever Koigu. Click to open the package. I've been in front of the Koigu wall at Patternworks and thought it was absolutely divine. I just couldn't justify the money when I'm on a perpetual budget. Good thing I like my own handspun.
Mom saw the yarn and immediately fell in love. I thought I would make something for her until I saw what she did......
She killed a spider.
Wait! Before you condemn her, she's not really a horrendous murderer. She's a nice person most of the time. I now I'm making excuses, I love my mom despite her murderous tendancies. She freaks out about spiders and this one happened to be very large. Well, large for her. She described him as being larger than her hand when in actuality it was the size of a 50 cent piece if you splayed it legs out.
None of her family would kill it for her. The thing was living outside, but was at a window she passed by several times a day. Finally she had a friend over and the 2 of them ganged up on the poor unsuspecting thing. How many grown women does it take to kill a spider?..... obviously 2.
I easily get sidetracked but I do remember this is a knitting blog.
For all those wondering. I ripped and I ripped good. Thank you for the compliments on that sleeve, but I had to rip. Its now been knitted back up in a new pattern - NO pattern. Yup, plain ole' stockinette. I am thinking, though, that some intarsia might be nice to break up the monotony. I'll see what I can come up with.
Can you see my little blue toes?
