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.

Ooh La La, A new look
So what do you think? Do I not look great as a blonde?
This was my final gift from my fan-ta-bu-lous Secret Pal. I was sorry that I didn't get to meet her at MDSW but this gift was worth waiting for. A new Alpaca wig, wooden antenae, Jute necklace and a toga printed with balls of yarn. My Pal certainly knows my affinity for dressing to the nines.
Ok, so maybe it wasn't meant to be worn in such a manner.
My secret pal has certainly been paying attention to my blog. I've fallen in love with shawls lately. In fact I have a ton of patterns in my wish list. There are 2 or 3 that will perfect in this beautiful alpaca lace. Right now the top contender is Inky Dinky Spider Stole. Just the name alone gives me giggles. The straight needles are beautiful handmade wooden ones that will perfect to knit the Inky Dinky Spider Stole with. I almost want to throw North Sea aside and start this. But I won't. It helps that I don't even own the pattern yet. If I had the Inky Dinky Spider Stole pattern I probably wouldn't be able to contain myself.
If you look at the rest of the gift you'll see a set of really nice sheep cards and my "toga" which is really cute fabric patterned with balls of yarn. I have so many ideas of what to do with this, I'll have to show you all what actually happens with it. I doubt it will continue being a toga. Last but not least did you notice the ORANGE card. That should be the big hint as to who my SP was.
Still don't get it?
My SP was none other than the fabulous Michelle at Orange Yarn Please
Really I should have figured out who my SP was weeks ago. Elisa was the one that told me my SP had left early and I didn't even put 2 and 2 together that Elisa was going with Michelle. I think it was the wool-drug overdose that caused me to be so dense and not figure it out. Really it was a great surprise.
It was a great surprise.
Thank you Michelle for being a great secret pal!!!
I don't think I ever mentioned who I gave gifties to.
The Queen of the Snow Cows
Go check out her blog. Her knitting is really nice and she makes incredible sculpted dolls. Well worth the read if I do say so. And I say so.
