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.

HUGE update - Part 1
I'm not always good at remembering to update things. Oh, I come to the blog and I prattle on and on but I leave you all hanging. There's always something new to prattle on about. Today, to answer a few questions and to update on things yet to be asked, I'll tell you all what's going on over here at the Boogie house.
She's doing good and still crocheting. That blanket is what she had done the end of last week, I think it's almost finished. She's still having sight and comprehension problems, but hopefully she'll be leaving the nursing/rehab home the end of this week.
My big baby came home last Wednesday. It's getting hard to get a picture of her that doesn't show some scar or other. Poor pup. She was really happy to be home, as you can imagine. She's moving around easier, eating better, and so much happier than she's been in the past couple of weeks. I didn't get to talk to the vet about specifics when I picked her up, he was in surgery. I'll get to talk to him next week and I'll try to remember to update then as well.
Retro Prep is doing well. I'm into the body increases. If only I could stay awake at night I'd get this done in no time.
I did just knit a new shawl for myself, so I figured I better put the Kepler on hold and concentrate on all the Holiday gifts I need to do. I still may pick up Kepler when I need some cabling. I really want this sweater for myself. It may end up winning out over the X-mas sweaters at some point. And how are those coming along?
That's the start to sleeve number one of Dad's sweater in the Denim Blue and the other stripey thing is the sweater for my cousin's baby that is due the end of January. Baby sweaters go fast so I have a good chance of finishing that one on time.
A couple people oohed and ahhed over my cables last week. I'm sorry to say, these aren't cables. I thought they were too when I first downloaded the pattern but they are really just a clever series of decreases with yarn overs. The pattern is River Rapids from The SockBug. If you haven't knit any of the Sockbug's patterns you need to go there now! Her patterns are easy to read and nice. If you're wondering what yarn I'm using, it's Fortisima Colori color 2417.
That's all I have today. Tomorrow I'll update on everything else that I can think of.
