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.

I've been making faces allot lately, I guess.
You see, I've been informed that I make faces when I'm spinning. Husbeast often looks at me when I'm spinning and smiles. Silly me. I thought it was looks of admiration. I now know that it was looks of amusement. He did say, though, that the faces I make while spinning aren't half as funny as the ones I make when I'm playing centipede. That's a good thing because he took a photo of me playing centipede once, its not pretty folks.
What have I been spinning?
Tons of stuff. It finally stopped raining for 5 minutes yesterday so i grabbed the cammera. Click to see larger photos on some of the pictures.
This one is that stuff from my secret pal, single ply lace weight, I am so in love with it. I want a sweater but I know that isn't going to happen, I'll settle for a cami. Its all ready to go as soon as I get some tiny circular needles.
In an effort to clean up my fiber area I'm finishing us a few things. This is some Southdown that I got. It has a strange texture but I'm hoping it will all come together to make a nice vest for the little one.
Finally this is that merino silk blend from Indigo Moon. I spun this into lace singles and its for that Morehouse top "lola". It's so lush feeling. I'm sure that if I see these guys at another show I'll be picking up more of this. I have enough to do the lola top which is short sleeves but I want a full sweater.
I spun more yesterday after the rain started back up but there are no more photos for today.
Between the secret pal stuff and the Indigo Moon stuff I am wishing I had the technology to let you feel this stuff. Ok stop petting your computer screens, it won't work.
