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.

Camera - glorious camera
My pretty, shiny, new, little silvery camera came in Monday.
I spent lots of time futzing with it and phtographing yarny things all over the place. I had no idea what a camera whore yarn can be! Every where I turned there was yarn just begging to be photographed.
Here's the party animal of the crew. It was found swinging off of a chandelier in it's bright hand dyed plumage (slated for a princess sweater):
Woolease butting into the shot of some newly dyed roving. Some yarns just want to be the center of attention no matter what. You'd think it'd be enough for the wool ease that it was going to be the feature of most of this years Christmas sweaters. Sheesh:
How trashy this sock yarn is! Showing you her petticoat like that!
Ahhh, the laid back bright colored wools didn't exactly beg to be photographed but they looked so content laying there all stretched just waiting for their trip to Knit Pixie:
These guys were found in my basket waiting to be wash set and blocked. They were bounding about like puppy dogs. Yipping and yapping getting all tangled and twirly:
Last but not least was the fluffy queen of the get together. Newly drafted Merino. She was so serenly sitting in her little box awaiting her chance to be twisted onto the bobbin:
It's barely tolerable to spin merino here. I have to do it early morning or at night still as the days are just too humid. I'm going to try freezing my merino and see if I'm able to spin it easier that way. I have a few orders and I appologize if I'm making people wait too long.
