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.

Queen M and her fiber blends
A new big machine sitting on the kitchen table is just too irresistable for any 4 year old (or 31 year old). Miss M just couldn't resist it, she was immediately drawn to the new drum carder. I understand that I might be raising a fiber-aholic, but seriously, this thing is irresistable. Just look at it's pretty wood, the shiny metal and those gorgeous red details.
It's just begging to be pet everytime one goes by it. It screams for attention and to be fed MORE WOOL! The morning after I got it, husbeast asked if I'd used it yet. I thought a better question might have been, "is there any wool in the house that hasn't been fed to it yet?"
I figured letting M play with the new
Then the memory kicked in and I remembered a bag of Angelina that I had. If it sparkles then Queen M must have it. So we blended some of that into it too. Maybe a little to much. The kid knows nothing of moderation and I was just following orders.
This will be new sparkle mittens for the winter. She wants a hat too, but I think that will reqire more wool. Aw shucks, back to the carder. *grin*
