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.

My mom has this dog. She's a sweet black lab that just looks at you with these eyes filled with puppy love. She's also numb as a pounded thumb and naughty. She eats paper from the trash can. She'll spend time eating TP right off the roll. She ate the toe off my mom's "fuzzy feet". Yesterday she ate the thumb off M's mitten.
That's what they used to look like and this is what they looked like yesterday:
I figured after the attack of the goat dog, that it was a perfect opportunity to show you how I did that. Since it was a thumb it's easier than a hole somewhere else.
I snipped off the raggedy bits and snipped into an end. Then I unraveled until I had a level spot to start from and enough of an end to weave in to keep it secure.
I picked up the stitches and added in a new piece of yarn.
I finished off the thumb and you can't tell it was ever damaged.
This is about the most knitting I've done all week. Sad isn't it. Between problems on ebay, my pottery show, and family stuff I haven't had time to even look at my wheel or my needles. Sorry Carissa, the yarn is taking me longer than I thought. Friday I start my last show of the year. I hope things get easier after that.
This is it for the week folks. I barely found time to write this so I'll see you all on Monday and hopefully I'll be more relaxed with another present finished that I can't show you. If you are in Maine come see me at the U.N.E gym in Portland. Come entertain me.
