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.

FO and SP4
IMHO I just love SP's. AFAIK it should be fun. I want to do it ASAP. When I got the Email I thought NFW! It's time already. IAE I did sign up. The last 2 SP's I gave to fell off the earth. I'm trying to T+ that SP4 won't disappear. Oh, BTW I have a FO to show. It's not for my MIL, SIL, or DD but for Mom. I just want to say TIA.
Are you ROTFLAO? Or have you had enough of the abbreviations. Sometimes I feel bombarded with abbreviations when I read posts in certain forums. Using that many abbreviations doesn't come naturally to me. I looked up a set of them Here. I bookmarked it so I'd have some clue as to what people are talking about. Of course, I'm sure you don't need that guide. I'm sure you are all much younger and hipper than me.
Remember the vest I promised a modeled shot?
I suck so bad at taking photos of me. So you get a picture of Siouxsie wearing it. I wore it all day on New Year's Eve, until I was too hot in it. I love this new vest.

US 9 needles.
Stick 'em up!
They are now happily on the hands of my Momster. I love how the palms came out. I made great modifications to the pattern in the book, but they came out pretty close to their picture anyway. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to do Fair Isle mitts and gloves. It was a fairly quit knit when I actually worked on it.

I was afraid to sign up for another Secret Pal. The women that gifted me in the last 2 were awesome. I'm afraid for the people that I gift. All you out there better hope that you don't get me. I gift nicely and I really like to give, that's not the problem. Bad things happen to my SP's. SP2 disappeared at the beginning of the program and only resurfaced at the end. Through a series of unfortunate events, she was unavailable. I have talked to her since and she is ok. As for SP3, I know she got her first package and then she disappeared and I still haven't heard from her. I can only guess the earth had a hiccup and she fell off. Their blogs go without updates, emails were unanswered, and e-cards not picked up.
I'm afraid for my next SP. I like to gift things so I figured I'd give it one last try. If this SP disappears, I promise I'll quit signing up for these. If SP4 starts and bad joojoo comes your way, I bet you have me for your SP. Let me just applogize right now.
Well I can't speak for the people you had, but I can say that it was wonderful being your secret pal. I'm looking forward to SP4 starting too. Good luck to you.
So being your secret pal is king of like being a drummer for Spinal Tap...?
Is that your Boogie Vest pattern, the one in Knitty? I think I'm gonna have to knit one for moi. It looks so flattering on Souixsie. Hey, that would be a great handspun yarn project! Hmmm...where's that crockpot?
Amazing gloves I must say. You wear them well! :-)
I deeply covet the gloves. Maybe I'll use that palm for the MSF.
and i signed up for sp4. i have a job, so i can swing $50 over 3 months...i think. i hope.
