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.

Because we aren't talking about the gloves.
Thank you SP3.
You are so sweet and so is that candy. Mmmmmm. Caramels are my favorites!
The roving is something my SP3 dyed and its gorgeous. There is also a great card and a little toy that maybe I'll give up to my little M. And don't forget the toe ring. I don't think I mentioned that someone hit on me this past summer using the line that I had nice toes. Wearing that toe ring will make them all fancy and I'll be driving the boys wild with my toes! Thank you SP3!
A couple of weeks ago Ann and I decided to trade some yarn. It's always nice to compare ones yarn with others so Ann picked out the Rave stripe Romney and she made me that skein above. Plus she sent me a bit of indigo so I can try my hand at organic dying. Her yarn is very pretty, I can't wait to get started on another scolf. Thank you Ann!
Finally, I need to fess up that I took a shopping trip.
To make a short story long....Today as I was getting M ready for school I realized she had somehow grown another inch or 2 overnight. The child was already 43 inches tall! If she keeps growing at this rate she'll out grow me in 3 years. So after spending far too much time changing pants and tops that didn't fit, I realized I needed to get a few new things for her. On any normal day I avoid Walmart, but their kids clothes are priced right for a child that will outgrow them in a month. If you have tall girls then maybe you have noticed that all shirts are belly shirts. She is 4 but I need to buy size 6 tops to cover her belly. The thing I noticed today is that a 4T in the boys department is longer than a 6 in the girls department. HUH?
To keep going with my long and rambling story here.... If a store has yarn I have to look. Its a rule. I know they don't have really nice yarn but sometimes I just want cheap and easy. Yeah, I'm just that way.
This is cheap, it remains to be seen if its easy. It is acrylic but its ridiculously soft. It does border on novelty type yarn so it may get flung across the living room.
This is the last thing I have to say, I promise.
You bagaholics should fly to your Walmart. Kids school bags were on sale for $2.00. How could that get better? I know, I make bags so why would I buy one and why would I send you to walmart instead of my store. I am insane and if you don't know that, you haven't been reading for very long.
This is the bag I got. Its pink and orange! It will be good because I can stuff my stuff in there and M's stuff when we go somewhere. Plus its pink and orange! I'm going to take off that CD case (which is good to carry circular needles) and keep it with the rest of my knitting stuff. Did I mention the bag is pink and orange?
