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.

Scarf, scarf, scarf
I can't believe I've started to like making scarves.
As if the tally of sweaters wasn't enough of a reason to label me insane I have to talk about liking scarves! That's fine. Knit me a straight jacket and give me a padded room.
I finished 2 of the gift scarves.
1. Spider shadow scarf for Miss M:
Pattern: Shelridge Farms
Yarn: Patons Classic
I know - you can't see the spider. If you look HERE you can see an older picture of the spider.
2. A branching out scarf for my MIL:
Pattern: Branching out from Knitty
Yarn: Paton's Classic (1 full sk = 25 repeats)
I didn't block this scarf yet so it looks a little wonky. The only place large enough to block it is on the floor and at this stage I'm not crawling around on the floor with a scarf and blocking wires.
I have a few other scarves planned. I keep finding interesting lace patterns that I want to knit:
Day flower Scarf
Tiger Eye Lace Scarf
Elizabeth I scarves
Flared Lace Smoke Ring
Oak Leaf Scarf
Maple Leaf Scarf
I'm certainly not saying that I plan to do each of those. Eventually maybe, but right now I'll just pick a couple for Holiday gifts. I have plans to do one more branching out scarf in plummy purple. The only scarf on the needles right now is a simple Old Shale pattern knit in Knit Picks sock yarn:
