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.

That Special Kind of Stupid
Yesterday was that “special kind of hectic”. I won’t make you read all the hectic details, but it was so hectic in fact that I didn’t have time to eat and I actually forgot to do so. This happens to me when I’m really busy. If I’m not super hungry, I forget to eat. But the stupid doesn’t end there. At about 5pm I was in a grocery store getting M a treat for being a “special kind of good little girl”. Grocery stores make me hungry even if I’ve just eaten. That’s when I realized I was a “special kind of hungry” (duh) and knowing that I had my knitting group at a bar, and I wanted to have a beer, I better eat something. What do I choose? Soup.
I choose to scarf down soup. It’s not regular soup, though. It was soup already prepared and hot from the salad bar. What is it about salad bars that keep their soup at some “special level of scalding”. Hot? Hot doesn’t cover it. But I am that “special kind of numb” (beyond stupid here). I ate it and ate it fast without feeling it. I’m not sure it even touched my tongue as I can’t even remember if it was good soup or not.
Before I go any further, and this fits right in here, I want to thank my secret pal! THANK YOU SECRET PAL. I got this t-shirt yesterday in the mail. It fits. It really fits.
If you can’t read it, the bolded parts say “ I am always warped, twisted, strung out, hooked, dyeing for my needle habit.” It’s very cute and very appropriate for me to wear! Thank you.
There was knitting done yesterday. As mentioned briefly above, the Sea Dog knitters met last night. We have grown from 3 people to I think 14. WOW! Next month I'll have to try and remember the camera so you can see us all. Emily has done a great job of getting it all together. Dee brought me my soap order so I stink pretty and she gave away a ton of her fleece. I got enough to do a sweater! How sweet was that. Betsy and I benefited the most. Betsy is someone I had been talking to through emails, it was really nice to finally meet her. She was working on Booga bags and brought along Chrissy (I know I'm probably spelling names wrong, sorry). I got to meet Nissa from KR forums who was working on a great scarf from Elann's alpaca, soooo soft. Mary Ellen was working on a great Wallaby sweater and Amy had a very pretty scarf. Then in walked Suzy who gave me tips on Navajo plying and had some gorgeous yarn of her own. Emily and Dee were working on their six sox project in Making waves. Everyone else at the table, the table was long and I was at one end, I'm sorry, I can't remember what you were working on. If I bring the camera next time I should at least be able to look at a picture and remember. Unless I'm a "special kind of numb" again and forget the camera. At least I remembered my knitting.
That is some single ply, Lopi-lite type of yarn that I'm working on. I was going to do a cabled sweater but after I got that bag of white cooopworth yesterday I decided I'm going to do something different and integrate the white (dyed of course) with the grey in some sort of design. I'm all giddy to work on a new sweater, I just need to try and finish the others on needles already.
