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.

The race is heating up.
Harvest socks are contesting the primary election of the fluted banisters to be the vice project. Here they are having their first debate.
You can see they both come from such different backgrounds. Harvest is a toe up sock with background in bright wool while the Fluted Banisters are a cuff down sock with a background in dark cotton. As the Harvest sock began its protest the other night Husbeast's comment was "not another project! Didn't the fluted banisters already get elected?" It's a hard decision folks.
Let's talk about this election. I can't promise you I won't draft your yarn into service. In fact I promise that by watching other peoples projects move along you too will be prompted to start them. I promise that if I finish a project it will get photographed and be featured in this blog. I will flip flop and switch from one project to another. All my yarn will have a good no paying job. In fact much of my yarn will be put to work as socks making no wages on stinky feet. I promise I will not lie to my projects. I promise I will not frog stripey glove until at least after the election.
How this election/contest will work: On November 3rd as I'm celebrating or crying over the real presidential elections, I'll add all your names to the contest hat and pick one name and you get a prize. No discriminating, even if you vote for the losing project. Really, does any project lose? All projects listed are at the top of the list to get completed. What will you get for all your effort? A sheepy mug? Some handspun yarn? Some roving? I'll give you a choice when the time comes. So just send an EMAIL, if you are undecided, it's ok in my little project election.
I'm adding the shawl party back to the ballet because they are drawing some support and I just want them to stop their protest rallies.
Here are your candidates.
The sweater/sock party
The mitt/glove party
The shawl party
You have a part in this. Each and every one of you is important to the campaigns of these projects. You must sit there and vote. Even if you are undecided. Send me an EMAIL. Now I know you may not think its important, but it is. The projects feel your support. They can feel the love. I'm making an attempt to work on each one equally (or which ever one I feel like working on at the time).
The truth: Voting really is meaningless, its all just for fun and because I'm a total loon. The contest is real though. Have a fruity day everyone!
