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.

After all the pictures and stuff I bombarded you with yesterday, and you still came back. I have more today, I guess that's what you were hoping for. I don't feel productive but it seems as though I have been. I think it's been one of those weeks. You know, where you don't have progress on anything for weeks on end and then BOOM all of a sudden you have a ton of stuff to show off. This week is that finishing, "look at all my productivity" week. If this is your first week reading. I hope you don't get disappointed next week because I'll be back to blathering on and seeming crazy.
The SPA knit and spin is only 2 weeks away!!!! I feel unprepared. I have 20 bags cut and waiting, 15 lg needle holders, 30 small cases, 30 circular cases. Not to mention the new material waiting to be cut into and pottery that needs to be finished. Eeeps! Now your thinking I should be working or at least cut to the chase. I haven't even had my coffee yet! All that pottery that I showed off yesterday will be at SPA. (Melissa I can't find your email addy, sorry I didn't respond yet)
Thank you all for compliments on Barely Banff and the pottery. Has anyone noticed that my awesome Secret pal has been leaving me little notes. I get the best secret pals. I don't know how I get so lucky. The Banff was quite easy and I absolutely recommend this to anyone that wants a fast "sweatshirt" type of a sweater. If anyone is interested, I'll post my mods.
Want to see some yarn?
Sure you do.
This is "Grape Leaves". I really like it. I had Mandy in mind when I dyed this but I think it has too much purple. Back to the crock pot.
This is "Bumpy Barber poles". It's another stab at novelty type yarn. I think this type of novelty I'd be happy to work with though. Notice the solid bump parts. It's a fun spin. I want to make more but I've been diligently working on other things. Things like that giant list above.
I love the barely baniff! Your barber pole yarn reminds me of peppermint candy or candy canes. Yummy.
thanks for the secret pal shout out. :)
I dig those colours, yes indeedy, and I'm not usually a fan of two colour two plys (for some reason, I don't know why, it certainly doeesn't make sense to me either).
