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.

Slow Down.........signed, The Knitting Gods.
With so much on my plate lately I've been going non stop and according to the husbeast when I sit and knit, it's no different. He hypothesized that my needle broke because of the speedy click clacking going on.
The needles are an old set of interchangeables that I got from my gram. This is the second join to break. the company that made these needles no longer makes interchangeables so once these are gone, they are gone.
This sweater was supposed to be a Banff that I translated into a raglan but I've already changed it so now it's only loosely based on Banff. Melissa had hers on at the Seadog knitting and it looked really good. She said it was like a big comfy sweatshirt. Sold. As soon as I finished my secret project I picked this up. Now I'm wondering if I should take the break as a sign and start the next project I wanted to do.
That would be Baltic from Fishermen's Sweaters by Alice Starmore. I know, I know. The rules. Finish one knit at a time. But if the knitting gods are breaking your needles because they want you to knit something else, then there has to be an exception made for that. Right?
In the meantime I'll be working on this:
wow! that is some super knitting powers you've got there.. much like wonder woman who bends steel.
hope everything is going well.
