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.

Week of WIP's - Part 3
aka - The baby too
I've got something on the needles for the Munchkin child and for the Husbeast, I needed to cast on for the babe too. This might not be fr my babe however. My favorite cousin is pregnant as well and if she finds out she's having a girl, I'll give this one to her. If she's having a boy, I'll make her a new one of these in a less girly color.
It looks funny because I just cast on the extra stitches for the sleeves and I can't get the needles not to curl. If you need to make a baby sweater I highly recommend this. I worked on it for almost an hour last night. It's easy! Reynolds Blossom yarn and Reynolds Pattern #82244.
Just to make this post extra long and wordy, I was tagged by Dan yesterday. So I'm filling in the rest of today's entry with this:
10 years ago:
I was living in Santa Barbara, California. I was working in an office and had just been promoted to head of sales – which just meant I had to deal with the big accounts that needed more attention. I got my first tattoo from a friend that actual has become one of the more well known tattoo artists on the west coast. I spent all my weekends dancing it up at the local gay bar with friends. Life was easy and so was I (haha).
5 years ago:
I had been back in Maine for a couple of years. I had just had my daughter M. I had established my pottery business and was doing very well at it. Husbeast and I were not married yet (and wouldn’t be for another year).
1 year ago:
I was still working in pottery but expanding my fiber business. I had started to submit knitwear designs to magazines. I was diagnosed with PCOS. Other than that I was just enjoying my summer because it wasn't this freakin' hot!
I was sick and hot. I worked a partial day which was about all I could handle and spent the rest of my time trying to stay cool and not be sick.
I’m awake and I’m about to post my blog entry.
Hasn’t happened yet.
5 snacks I enjoy:
Vegies and dip, Cheese, cake, Soda, bread
5 bands/singers that I know the lyrics to MOST of their songs:
Ramones, Sex Pistols, Louis Prima (I know there is more but it's too early to think that clearly)
Things I would do with $100,000,000:
I’d give some to charities, save some so I’m not eating cat food in retirement, give some to family (family that I like), fix up the house, buy a vacation cabin and the lake it’s on, and basically not have to worry about how the next bill will be paid.
5 locations I'd like to run away to:
A quiet Island – I don’t need 5 locations, If I ran away I would just want to go someplace quiet where I don’t have to clean or cook (not that I do much of that anyway, I just feel like I should) or yell at anyone to behave.
5 bad habits I have:
Nail biting, stubborn attitude, whining(lately), eating sugary foods, not exercising. This is a question better asked of Husbeast, I'm sure he could come up with a few dozen more.
5 things I like doing:
Spending time with family and friends, pottery, Fiber stuff, eating, being outside (when the weather is tolerable), gardening
5 things I would never wear:
a fancy white wedding dress, trendy high heeled shoes (ie-flip flops with heels), sequined clothing, I will never again wear that string bikini hanging in the back of my closet, a really nice tan (but I wear a sunburn well)
5 TV shows I like:
I don’t watch much that I would care about if it wasn’t there. I watch the news and the food network most often. Sometimes I watch daytime soaps.
5 movies I like:
Natural Born Killers, The Color Purple, African Queen (or most any Hepburn movie), Platoon (or most any other war movie), Grease.
5 famous people I'd like to meet:
Henry Rollins, Elizabeth Zimmerman, Barack Obama, Katherine Hepburn (can I bring her back from the dead for a bit?), Rob Zombie
5 biggest joys at the moment:
My family, my dogs, my work, cool weather, cake
5 favorite toys:
I'm guessing we aren't talking about "adult" toys here. I don't think I have too many toys that I could call "favorites". I know, how boring. Everything I like to "play" with is more of a tool than a toy - yes I'm like Bill Clinton splitting hairs of word usage here. My favorite tools are my potter's wheel, spinning wheels, laptop, clay extruder, drum carder, and sewing machine.
