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.

Suck? Don't suck?
Lately Margene has been talking about her sucks (sox). It really just sucks to work on sucks that suck. Personally I love the look of these socks but I'm tired of the tangling. I finished one and I've started the 2nd one. I went to pick them up yesterday to work on them and I couldn't do it. I knit 2 rows, looked at the tangle of yarn and set them back down.
These are just going to keep getting tangled and I'm going to spend half an hour untangling. I've set them aside. The
So what am I going to do about it?
I'm haphazardly tossing these babies aside and I started a new take along project that is pleasing, easy and there is NO TANGLING of the yarn. At least no tangling yet. I'm even using a million little stitch markers to make it even easier and more brainless.
This is the North Sea Shawl from Folk Shawls. The yarn is Elann Baby Silk. Yes, it is that nice. I meant to use this yarn for Clapotis but in my typial fashion, I changed my mind. This lace pattern is super simple. I will do half the shawl set it aside, do the other half and then graft it together. I won't ever have a giant expanse of material at any one time. Perfect take along project.
I bought some of the Elann baby Alpaca for the Kimono Shawl in Folk Shawls...can't wait to get my hands into it!!
