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.

Wow! I don't think I've gotten that many comments in a month. Thank you all for the wonderful congratulations. It must be the new Haloscan commenting system. I'm glad I switched. Over the next year I'll be sure to
There was a mention of funky pregnant clothing. Most of my clothes from the last time got reconstructed into non-pregnant lady clothing. I need a ton of new stuff. I'm going to start cruising the thrift stores for t-shirts and pants. When I have a few I'll put up a tutorial on reconstruction. Reconstruction is the only way to get really unique and cool clothing to cover the ever expanding belly. It seems like there are a ton of pregnant gals out there right now so if you have requests, let me know and I'll see if I can add it to the tutorial (it helps if you have a photo or a link to what you are talking about). I also have an idea for a knit tank, we'll see what I have time for.
Speaking of funky....Did anyone notice the Boogie bra is back? I won't even talk about how I lost it when I took it down and all the fiasco surrounding that. Then all the emails of people wondering where it went to. No more worries, it's back.
Finally, the North Sea
I'm on the middle of the 7th repeat and made an executive decision about my little easy project. The pattern calls for 14 repeats but I'm going to do 13. This time it's not because I'm supremely lazy, it's because 13 is a lucky number for me. Husbeast was born on the 13th not to mention other good things having to do with that number. So, I'm halfway through this side. I might do an extra repeat in the middle section to make up for the approximate 4 inches I'll lose by dropping a repeat on each side.
I started a new sweater. It's my own design for a contract. This time I have a little over a month to finish it. Mostly for the next few weeks this will consume my time. I need to finish it before I head out to MDSW. I can do that.
Tomorrow I promise pretty yarn photos.
