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 Scarlet Letter
Pass the scarlet letter over here.
I need to be wearing that big red "A".
Yes, I'm an adulterer.
I've been cheating on my knitting. I'm not talking about spinning more than I knit. Although, I've been doing that too. I've hurt knitting's feelings. I've been consumed with sewing lately. I tried to hide it from knitting but I just couldn't hide it forever.
You see, I got a "bee in my bonnet" and decided I need a new bunch of shirts. I went through my stuff and I'm tired of all the work shirts that are huge and frumpy. I can't wear all the tiny tops of my youth. No one needs to see my belly. Therefore, I need new tops.
I went to the crazy Joann's sale at 6 am on Black Friday and I scored a bunch of cheap material for new blouses, shirts, pants, PJ's and all that. Yes, I want PJ's to. Normally I just wear a t-shirt and sweats but I think it would be fun to pretend I'm grown up enough to have real PJ's. Like Nick and Nora but with Boogie style.
This is what I've finished so far. Its a really easy and nice pattern from McCalls.
I must appologize for the quality of photos. I'm not good at mirror pics and the other one was taking at 6 am so I'm headless there because my head was still laying on a pillow and not read to stand on my neck.
I made a couple of things for the little one too but she cast me a look that said I better not even attempt to take a photo.
I did find a bit of time for knitting last night at a Hockey game. I have also logged a bit of time on Manly. I've certainly not spent as much time as I would like to have. I'll show of some spinning later in the week.
