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.

I'm back for the day
I skipped posting the end of last week because I was in a crappy mood. Gotta love those moods swings. However, this is my last post until the end of next week. Tomorrow I'll be spending the day cleaning, packing and finishing up some work, Wednesday we leave for our vacation. I will be
The Tan sweater is almost done, she will stay at home. I think tan might get air sickness and I would want that.
The tan socks and Skittles...
are sitting in my carry-on bag and are looking forward to their plane ride. I always pack more yarn than clothes, especially since I don't know if I'll have time to hit a yarn store in case I run into an emergency like running out of yarn. So I'll probably also pack a couple of extra balls of sock yarn. Not having a project would be devistating. It might be more devistating for those around me that would have to deal with my fidgeting, hyperness, and incessant talking. Knitting stops all of that and makes me quite a calm, almost pleasant human being.
There you see an extra project and travel bunny. The bunny I've had since I was a little kid. He's small enough to put in a pocket or hide him in a bag. He has travelled back and forth across the US many times. Travel bunny always goes with me. The extra project I've had lying around since last July. I finished one sock and promptly lost interest in it. If I actually finish them, they'll be a good gift for my mom.
What are we up to so far? 3 sock projects.
Let's add a few more just in case.
On top you will see 3 commercial yarns, all leftovers from my socks that are enough for baby or toddler socks. then on the bottom there is a navajo three ply in fruit stripes (you can't see but it is purple, orange and pink) and the 2 ply in More pie please. Five sock projects bringing the total to 8. Eight. I didn't feel crazy until I did that total. No I don't think I'll have enough time. In my defense, if I choose to work on kid socks, those do go quickly and I could get a couple pairs done.
We have new workbooks and coloring books for Miss M. There are plenty of snacks ready to be packed. Hopefully tomorrow I'll find the time to make a few new shirts to cover the expando-belly. If not, I'll have to find some time in California to go shopping. The important thing is that I got my yarn all ready to go, the clothes are just a secondary item.
I hope you all have a good week and I'll post all about it when I get back and start getting ready for Maryland Sheep and Wool. Have you noticed the ticker at the top of the page? Less than 3 weeks.
