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.

You've all decided just what I realized I wanted to do anyway.
You're so smart.
But before I go any further - Thank you all for the sweet compliments on the "Diamonds are Forever" sweater. And Ann,we like to say that our daughter got her attitude from our siblings. Somehow the bad attitude gene skipped us and went right to her.
I'm going to do the sweater first. Here's the yarn
Only about 900 yards to go. Its coopworth that I dyed up in olives, limes, and browns and spun into a worsted single. We are still trying to think of a name for it. My first thought was "Olives hold the pimentos" but Husbeast seems to think "Pea soup and Ipecac" is a better option. I admit, it looks a little like baby poop but I like it anyway.
This is my second attempt at a sleeve and I'm liking it better. The cables will run up the sleeves, be at the waist and neck but the body will be mostly stockinette.
Because Marta asked and more of you may wonder, I'm going to be showing the progress pictures. I hate keeping this stuff secret. If someone wants to publish my stuff then they can contact me to get permission but doing all that submitting (and waiting, I'm not patient) is too much like work and I don't want knitting to be my "work". I want to share and enjoy. Every now and then I still may submit something or sell a pattern, but for right now I'm just knitting and having fun.
