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.

Did I mention we are on vacation?
Techhnically husbeast is on vacation, not me. It was a spurr of the moment, I'm tired of being stressed out, I'm taking a week off vacation. So there are no plans other than trying to remove our butts from the couch every now and then. Gotta shift that butt divot around.
I still have orders to fill so I can't technically be on a real vacation but I'm only working half days. I'm getting in lots of spinning time. I'm still working on those 2 sweaters. As this contest is going on I keep adding more to my list of lace knitting. I really need to get on my butt and do some serious knitting here if I want to be drowning in lace soon.
I did finish M's mittens. Strike that off the "need to do for winter" list.
I wound up more yarn for a pair of socks for dear ole' dad. He kindly hinted that he will be working on construction outside this year and is going to have to find some warm socks. Subtle right?
The yarn is a new colorway I'm working on (click to embiggen), I hated it in roving form, but as a yarn its really pretty. I'm excited to start knitting it. I'm calling it "the lake" because it reminds me of a whole ton of lakes up near the Forks in Maine. This is the way we wind yarn around here.
I've got a few other yarns finished. One of my favorites is Sorbet. Its sock yarn and I haven't decided if I'm keeping it yet.
Ok so now I'm going back to vacation life. Send me your contest entries, it all ends on Friday. Which is when I'll be back to announce the winner.
