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.

Campaigning was hard work and I really needed a day off.
Not that I really had a day off. I've got work to do and my last 2 pottery shows to get ready for. I have some new stuff I'll show off later. They are all in the kiln (big pottery oven) at the moment.
I've been working on "no sweater left behind". Actually one sweater still has been left behind, Olive. Poor Olive.
Bunny is almost at the collar. It's flying right along after intarsia hell. I want someone to smack me if I think of doing an intarsia sweater again.
Not very impressive. But I'm at the last grey stripe. This means point of interest is coming. 5 more rows of grey, 2 of black and then I start on the neck and sleeve shaping. And then I get to move on to sleeve island. I've promised myself I'll get this done by xmas. It's his Xmas present and he already knows it. It's ok, I'll get him something fun too.
Mostly though, I've been spinning Carissa's yarn in my non-work time.
Looks similar to Mandy's but really it's quite different. I have a mini skein of Mandy's left and together they are different so Carissa and Mandy won't look like twinsies.
Have a good fiber filled weekend!
