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.

Hugs and Welts
Welts add so much to an item. Especially the Hugs and Kisses Sock pattern. They look fabulous on this sock. Here is an easy trick to doing them. I'm sure most of you know this already but there are bright shiny pictures anyway.
In a welt you will need to pick up stitches from previous rows and knit them together with current row. A fast way to knit this is to pick up the previous row's stitches with one needle and work it together. Click the above picture to enlarge.

Notice anything odd about the needles?
Looks like a crochet hook right?
Why the hell am I knitting with a crochet hook?
It's not a crochet hook.
These things were a St.Swivens gift from Betsy. They are Portuguese knitting needles. One end is a knitting point and the other is a crochet hook. It makes Continental knitting fly. I love it. Thank you again Betsy. You rock!
I haven't touched these socks since knitting group Monday night. But I absolutely love this pattern and I hope I get to finish one sock this weekend.
And Amy, you have no idea how happy I am to hear that you like the pattern since I so admire your knitting. And I love the way you worked the heel. ;-)
Why does it go faster, do you know?
I'm glad Miss M is feeling better and I agree with you wholeheartedly that movies are really the only thing to help a cold.
Hope you and your fam have a great weekend!
It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about penis enlargement reviews) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about penis enlargement reviews related articles and subjects.
