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.

I need to report that the Fluted Banisters have been diagnosed with a heart condition. Well, that's the official word. I've heard from such rags as the "Wooly Enquirer" that the fluted Banisters have a heavy drinking problem. FB was found underneath a half dressed intern. Both were passed out from too much drinking. To save the party they came up with the heart condition story and slid in the Harvest socks. I'm sure you will see FB later on maybe working in a dark corner of the campaign but it certainly looks like your candidates in the sweater party is the Manly Sweater and Harvest socks.
This picture was taken when the Harvest socks got home from campaigning at the first home AHL hockey game of the year. The home team won and Harvest felt that there was a lot of support for their party. You can see how relaxed Harvest is resting on the foot stool knowing they are far ahead and will surely be completed first. But will the Manly sweater be able to pull ahead and make it a winning sweep?
Nothing to report about the mitt and glove party. They are planning a rally but haven't really gotten their campaing off the ground. Being one of the major parties I'm a little disappointed to not have seen anything from them yet. The sweater party has started to throw accusations of the mitt party being lazy and out of touch. We hope that they make a formal showing soon or they just won't have a chance at the presidential project seat.
The shawl party is announcing a small change. Charlotte will be shorter than the pattern specifies. CW will be similar in size to the Flower Basket Shawl. CW has little chance of being used as a full shawl. It will have a better life after politics if its a large kerchief/small shawl, so it can be worn with a coat.
Here you see that 4.5 repeats have been completed with .5 ounces of yarn. There is 1.5 ounces of yarn left which will fill in the remainder of the shawl. Mountain scolf is supporting the changes and looks forward to a good race. The Shawl party feels their chances are good.
Sea Dog knitters meet tonight. I'll be bringing a representative from each party and see if I can garner support for one and all.
