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.

Prezzies for me
I went out yesterday in the new car. The first little jaunt to test my new found freedom tasted good. So did the calzone I had for lunch.
I had to buy myself a new little present.
It's just lovely.
In racy yellow and everything.
I'm not sure if you can see but it's name is "fast and easy". That's just how I like them. Although I doubt fast equates with done well, and easy equates with someone else doing it for me. But with my new cleaning obsession, I figured I needed a new mop. I got a whole host of new sprays and junk too. Mmm chemicals.
This must really look like I've flipped my lid.
Well, there is the rule that you can't leave the house without actually buying yarn. I had to get needles for sewing and right there in the middle of the craft store... Ok, so it wasn't in the middle, it was down by the yarn. There was this bin full of discontinued yarn.
The purple is for those silly thong things. M saw some in the craft store all done up and said "ooh lala". That means she would like a pair. It means I'll work with this shit but only because her birthday is coming up. The green is Pixie that is slated to be some sort of stuffed animal. That stuff is killer soft and just begs to be a little toy.
Would you be disappointed if it stopped there?
I would be.
I need substance in my yarn.
Fortunately I had some arrive in the mail.
This here is some stuff I picked up at Knit Happens little internet sale. 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces and 4 skeins of Koigu. All are destined to become socks. Yes, I've succumbed to the seduction of socks again. Or at least to the seduction of sock yarn. Because I have it doesn't mean I need to knit it all right off. My stash needs some love too.
Just to make sure the stash is sufficiently happy with sock yarn I've finally signed up for a sock of the month club. This means no more sock yarn for a while.
Not that I'm fooling anyone with that statement. I don't know what came over me or why I even said that. I'm sure we all got a good chuckle.
I fixed the layout problem the only way I knew how. The sidebar is gone for now. I can't figure out why the blog looks ok in Mozilla but not IE. Even going back to a saved template from months ago didn't help. I can only blame someone else and that's what I'm doing. Until I can figure something else out, you can find all my links on my LINK page. If it gets anyworse I may have to jump ship and make a new template.
