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.

Why haven't I done Charlotte's Web?
I like the pattern, I signed up for the knit-along, and more importantly I already own the pattern and some yarn.
Finally, I think I figured out why I haven't even entertained the idea of starting it.
While I like the yarn I chose it doesn't seem to fit Charlotte and I think it would do much better as a candle flame shawl or even a leaf lace one. I now know I need to use my own yarn. I got a ton of merino over the weekend. Merino isn't my favorite wool, but they didn't have much else in white. I've dyed up what I think will become my Charlotte.
It's my "bruise" colorway. That's one of the things I've been spinning. My spinning has taken on the personality of my knitting, a million projects going at once.
That's 1 ounce of it. The actual yarn seems far darker without flash. It's more purpley than I was shooting for but I really like it anyway. Now if I can just finish these 2 sweaters I'm working on, I'll get going on Charlotte's Web.
About spiders, Thank you for all your comments. Murderous Mom hates spiders so much that she even trained her dog to stomp on them. It was the funniest thing to watch a dog stomp a spider and come get its owner for approval.
