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've been branching out into scarves lately.
Yes you have the right blog.
I'm talking about scarves.
I know it seems foreign with all the whining I've done about them.
I've actually been making scarves!
Most specifically I've been doing the Branching Out scarf from Knitty. What a wonderful pattern Susan, Thank you.
I suppose I should explain why the maddness. Why did I finally decide to knit a scarf? I joined a scarf exchange. I know, what was I thinking? It didn't really hit me until I was paired up that I actually had to knit a scarf.
What a dunce moment I must have had signing up for that. I guess I just couldn't help myself. It must have been one of those crazy pregnancy moments. Like all that yarn I've bought. Yes, that's right, it's all because of hormones. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
If I were to ever knit a scarf, this is a great one to knit. In fact I've finished one and cast on for another. Knitting more than one of some pattern is very unlike me. Not only is it a scarf but I want to make more just like it. It must be an attack of the hormones again.
The scarf done in Lavold Silky wool. One skein, 25 repeats, over 5 feet long.
and closer because you know you wanna
This will be heading out soon to my secret scarf pal. Look at the cute little basket I painted for her too.
I hope she likes it.
The second one on the needles that will be a scarf for Mom in law:
It's being worked in Paton's Classic Merino, 10 repeats done so far. We'll see how much one skein will get me.
I have plans for a third one too.
Did you fall out of your chair?
I really should warn people when I've gone completely nuts. I bought another skein of Lavold silky wool in Plum to make another because it's just so easy and so pretty. Who can pass up a one skein project that can be done in a weekend, assuming you don't get distracted by other pretty WIP's.
