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.

I read lots and lots of blogs. I have a list on Bloglines and in my link area. I'll admit it that I'm adicted to them. I read while I eat my lunch or breakfast. I read when I have a moment and if I'm not eating I knit while I read. Which is possibly why I'm not a great commenter, my hands are always busy with something.
One such blog I've been reading for a while. It's the blog of Emma If you don't read it, I'm telling you that you should. But if you aren't interested in adding another blog to your list of reads I'm asking sweetly that you go read the last few entries over there.
She has a sweet little boy named Oliver who needs specialized equipment to live fully and without borders. If you have it in your heart to help out or just to write a sweet note to them, I think it would be appreciated. Kerrie has also set up a couple of auctions to help out - one for Silk and another for Cashmere. Both are well worth the look.
Someone even made a button and everything for this sweet boy:

I have one more thing for you. I've heard the drop stitch cardi from the Fall 2005 IK is a little hard to "read" in variegated. You're right. I did one in a solid and while it obviously doesn't fit the "model" it's on - you'll have an idea of how it looks in a solid.
