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.

Secret and not so secret pals.
I've sent out my gift to my pal. Hopefully she'll get it today or tomorrow. I also decided to make the job easier for the person that was matched up to me (HI Pal!!). I have that 99 things button over there -------> But it seemed to lack in some information. I filled out the little questionaire that Heidi sent and added it to my 99 things.
I finished spinning up Mandy Red yarn. Whew. It was weird not spinning and knitting as I go along. Good thing this yarn is amazingly pretty. I'll get a photo of all the red goodness as soon as the last 2 hanks dry. I have now started on the rainbow crock pot roving and am doing that to 2ply sportweight. Boogie needs a new pair of socks. Do you remember that roving?
Since I finished the making waves socks, I started to do the making waves gloves but changed my mind because as I started to knit, a gorgeous stripe emerged in this yarn. I have never used this brand before, so it was totally unexpected. I've decided to leave them alone with their pretty stripe and not make them too busy with a pattern as well. I've also decided I need more of this yarn.
I feel so dumb. I just looked at the label so I could tell you what the exact name was, its Meilenweit. That much I remembered. The dumb part is the rest of the name. "fun and stripes". Hmmmm, maybe I should have guessed with a name like that, that they would be stripey gloves.
I spent almost all day yesterday stressing over lace. I want to create a lacy scarf. I've been swatching and swatching using my handspun lace singles. I have a bulletin board here with pieces tacked to it so I can see if there is anything I like. I don't know. The only thing I do know is that the yarn is really pretty.
I'm working on something different at the moment. Its wider and more simple than I wanted it to be but maybe that's what it should be. Big and easy. I'll let you know if I don't rip it out.
For you Monday work avoidance, go HERE Madame told me that I need more yarn. I love it.
