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.

Where do I start?
My day started with a notice that my website had been shut down. Oh great. So I searched for reasons why and quite unsuccessfully. I'm computer literate and that's as far as it goes.
The great knight Husbeast rode up on his trusty stead, a Dell computer, and saved my day. The website had been shut down because of its bandwidth usage. I thought for sure that someone was stealing my bandwidth. This made me very angry. Grrrrr.
My hero on Dell-back said that he could find out what was up and he'd let me know. Well, it didn't take long but the great hero of our story conquered all and helped to save my day.
It looks like there might have been a few minor infractions of stolen bandwidth, so if you'll notice on the left, several buttons are now gone. People, really, save the button to your own server. How many times do people need to ask you to do so?
I say those were minor, because that alone wouldn't shut down my site. They make me angry but didn't really flip out my day. So what did? The country of Japan decided to download the Boogie Bra. I say the country of Japan because it was This site that linked to my Boogie Bra and caused over 70K hits overnight. They completely shut me down and I had to remove it from my server. I can't afford the bandwidth it takes to provide a country with a free pattern. It may get put back up at some point, but for right now, I can't do anything about it.
Then Anne came over and brought me cookies. YAY! cookies! Thnk you, they were just the right pick me up.
I taught her to use her spindle. Really, this time I wasn't a pusher. She wanted to spin, I swear officer, there was no coersion involved. Anne did a great job making her first yarn. If I was a better blogger, I'd have a picture for you.
And then Anne drove us to Halcyon! YAY Halcyon! Where all I got yarnwise, was sock yarn to make my Dad's Father's day gift. I'm sticking to my guns here. But I do have another couple of baby sweaters to make too. If you're reading this Amy, I have you in mind.
Then my knight in shining husbeast armor bought me something incredible. I can't even get you a good picture of what I looked like. I was trying to do a cross betwee the happy face and the angry face above but I think the happy face won out. Close your eyes and use your imagination. No, it's not a pretty picture. But I'm not fessing up what it is just yet. This is like the teaser on the news; And more on the nude knitters in the next hour.....
I do have one last thing for you today:
My super friend Anj is riding for the American Cancer Society this July. If you have anything you could offer to sponsor her it would be greatly appreciated. We all have had people in our lives effected by cancer. To read about the person she is dedicating her ride to, or to donate please go here
