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.

No time for tan
That was my vacation motto. Actually I almost had no time to knit at all. Plane rides were for playing games with Princess M and trying to sleep. While on vacation it was time to play with kids and try to sleep. Do you see a theme popping up here?
Here I am with the 3 kidlets at the San Diego Zoo. If you could see the photo larger (which you can't) you'd see I have a confused look on my face. At the moment the photo was taken, I was neither being rowdy with kids nor was I napping. Mmmm, naps. Whatever happened to the 2nd trimester energy boost? Did someone else nab my energy? If you have it, would you kindly give it back for a couple of weeks? I'll be your friend.
I did get one sock done in California
Skittles is a funky looking yarn. I haven't decided if I like exactly this yet, I do have several new dying ideas from this though. I like the brightness and I will happily wear them.
As I was working on these someone asked me "what are you knitting?"
Normal enough question to which I respond "socks".
Now comes the response that I've never in my life heard. She then said "oooh those are bright! It's nice to have bright socks to wear around the house so you don't wear out your good white tennis socks for when you want to go out".
This, I had no polite response to. The thought of leaving these gorgeous treasures at home in favor of plain white socks stunned me.
Poor tan has been sitting at home though.
That's all that was done and I hav no excuse other than, but they're taaaan. I'm so not into tan anymore. I need a tan break. The skittles socks have provided that but I'm almost done with the second sock and I'll need to move onto a new project. Do I finish the tan? Or do I do something happy?
A big shout out to my Secret Pal!
Thank you for the wonderful gift. Again!
Cloth for which I have plans for, a little bag with gloves in a bottle and a book thong that didn't make the photo, it's already in use. The little postcard has a recipe on it that looks like even the picky eaters might like it.
Have a good weekend.
I hope to take lots of naps (and mow the lawn, and get the garden ready for planting, and do some weeding, and catch some tadpoles).
