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.

Sailing the North Sea
Once again I'm knitting on the North Sea Shawl.
I can't beleive I started it in March and I haven't gotten much done. Sure I've had other projects, some secret and some not. A girl's gotta have her secrets. Still, this is a really easy knit. I guess I just haven't found the time to be working on it as much as I'd like. Sure I could be knitting instead of posting right now but ....
hey, how come I'm posting instead of knitting?
Oh, right. This time of day is when I should be starting work and if I'm knitting in the morning it means I won't be working today. As much as I think that sounds like fun, I'm sure there are those of you out there that want your stuff.
Now that that's settled I can get back to talking about North Sea. Easy pattern... yadda yadda... Nice yarn... So where am I now?
In March the first photo I showed off was
Then I told you I had gotten further
And finally in May I had that first half finished
But not blocked as you can see it's all wonky in the photo. I have blocking wires (if I can find where I put them) that will come in handy.
Over the weekend, after letting this sit for 2 months untouched, I picked up North Sea again. I cast on my 109 sts and I have 4 repeats completed. I was barely home or in a position to knit over the weekend, so that's my excuse as to why very little had gotten done. My goal is to have this little baby finished by the end of the month. Of course I have 2 other secret deadlines I need to get done before then but I might be able to pull it off.
Many thanks to Jennifer for helping me figure out what Blogger did to screw up my blog. It's all fixed until they do something else craptastic.
