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.

Hugs, Kisses and a huge Thank you!
Over the weekend I had some glorious mail.
Sonja made me this:
You can't feel it but I wish you could. The combination of the super soft yarn and the texture of the pattern are amazing. I have to admit I've been using it around my shoulders at night. I'm pretty sure she meant for it to be used for Princess K but it's irresistable. Thank you, you are too sweet.
Maike made me this:
A couple of weeks ago I won the grand prize in the "Give a little" give away. They weren't kidding when they said grand prize. This little set is gorgeous. I can't wait to get it on the little kicking twisting uncooperative baby girl. Thank you Maike, it's simply beautiful.
This will make Lisa happy... I'm still sticking to one obsession. It must be some kind of record that this scarf obsession has lasted more than a week now.
I found another lacy scarf pattern
Isn't it gorgeous? I think I have the perfect yarn for it too.
Pretty pretty purple. this is Knitpicks Shadow in Vineyard.
I also cast on for an instant gratification scarf sort of project that isn't quite so instant in the gratification or finishing department. Can I get any more vague than that? Although there are some of you that seem to be able to follow my trains of thoughts no matter how they meander. I wonder what that says about you? Are you as nuts as me? Or are you just really good at working with the insane?
I present to you - a pile of knitted up yarn!
Someday when it's finished and blocked I swear it will be a pretty version of the Leaf Lace shawl. Well, it will at least be some sort of version of that shawl. I should have taken a picture when it was still manageable, but I'm sure if I have some sort of valid excuse as to why I don't have one. I just just can't come up with that excuse at the moment.
