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.

Cleaning Lesson #1 - Don't Clean!
I had written great notes.
Wonderful ones in fact, so that I could tell you all my changes.
I made one fatal mistake though.
Well, not a good thorough cleaning. Hell, a thorough burning might be in order at this point. I suppose what I did could more accurately be described as a "tidy".
I should know better. after I clean I can never find anything. You guessed it. I can't find the notes. Also in that little envelope was a brand new pattern and chart that I wrote.
I'll find it someday.
Let this be a lesson to you. I make mistakes so that you may learn. Don't clean! For the sake of your knitting, don't clean! If your family needs to know why you are no longer cleaning you can point this out and let them know what a true hazzard it would be to clean.
For now you get half-assed notes.
Patons' Shetland Chunky - 6 skeins - US 9 needles
I cast on for a woman's medium - 156 sts
I worked 4 inches in 2x2 rib, then stockinette for another 11 inches.
The arms I cast on 52 sts
I worked 6 inches in 2x2 rib, then stockinette until I used up the skein.
The rest was done in typical raglan fashion.
The neck is similar enough to the original pattern
The neck was done differently because the Paton's Shetland Chunky tends to stretch out and stay that way at the neck. So I did extra decreases at the neck when I picked up stitches and worked the 2x2 rib for 3 inches. You probably wouldn't need to do that if you were using a different yarn. It helps to "know" your yarn.
I think that's enough to get you on your way if you want to do your own Barely Banff. I'm taking tomorrow off from blogging so I can clean. HA! you got me. You know I'm not going to clean. I'd lose more stuff and I don't want that to happen. I'll really be working in the shop, it's so quiet early in the morning. I'll be back on Thursday.
Remember, don't clean!!
(To think what's in tidy limbo - missing patterns, needles, probably some yarn, perhaps even Elvis? That's what happened to him - somebody went on a tidy!)
I have a penis enlargement reviews related info site. It covers penis enlargement reviews related information.
