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'm here today, sort of
Did you notice the new button on the sidebar?
I figured I've been pretty erratic this week about posting and that I owed you something. I'm trying to get used to this new schedule and I've ended up with a cold on top of it all. Once I get well and get used to it all, I hope I can make the posts more regular again.
Until then, if you sign up to the bloglines link provided up there (all free) then you will get an email notification when I publish my blog. There is another way to be notified of new postings. If you have a Live Journal account, I'm syndicated there. Just go here to BoogieKnits and choose "add to friends list" and when your friends list updates, my blog post will show up. If you choose that, remember that I don't see comments left to the LJ syndication account, you need to come here to comment. How many of you are reading and never comment?Hmmmmm?
Here's the sweater "Diamonds are forever". I almost didn't take a picture at all. I'm so close to finishing that I almost saved it to show then. So many of you seem to like to see the insides of these things. I hope my sweater makes you feel good about your sweaters. My inside isn't pretty.
My Do's and Don'ts
I mattress stitch the sides and under arms.
I do a 3 needle bind off for the shoulders using a crochet hook for the 3rd needle.
I backstitch the arms onto the sweater body.
I knot my ends then weave them in(obsessive much?).
I pick up neck band stitches with a crochet hook.
I totally "wing it". If the pattern isn't working out the way it's written, I change it so it works for me.
comment here if you dare
