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.

Friday's are for Shopping
First the shopping....
If we're going to shop and throw money around like crazy people, why not have some of it go to charity?
Crafters for Critters
It's a charity site where all items are donated by independent crafters and all proceeds go to support animal rescue. (thank you DeeAnn for passing this one on to me)
Many of us are already familiar with this organization. It's all about ending world hunger. There's something for every size wallet, "gifts" here range from -$20 to +$150.
All proceeds from these Auctions go to proceed the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer foundation. There are new auctions each week.
Click to Help
That particular site will help feed hungry animals. But through there you can also find buttons that aid other organizations. Simply by clicking on those buttons and their affiliates you will help aid the organizations.
I know there must be more out there. Please tell me and I'll update over the weekend so everyone will know the best places to spend their hard earned cashola.
now for the Race....
Anj and I are going to try and bend the time and space continuum. Actually, I'd like to bend it so hard I give it a permanent curve. Anj wants to get a sweater done by December 5th so we're going to race to the finish and see who can do it and do it first.
She's working on Eris and I was supposed to be working on Baltic. But now I'm not. This decision was made early this morning so Anj doesn't even know yet.
Why the last minute change up?
Here's where I left Baltic this past spring:
Here's what it looks like after I finished up the bottom band last night:
I didn't rip it last night because I thought maybe in the morning light it would be acceptable. It's not. There is a drastic difference in gauge (or needle size). I have to rip it. I can't rip back and go with the original needle size/gauge because I like last night's version better.
The part I knit in the spring just looks yucky to me now.
So what will I knit?
All other projects on the needles are too far ahead of where Anj is on her Eris. So the only fair thing, is for me to start a new project. Ok, I just plain want a Rogue and this is my excuse to have it before I finish Christmas gifts.
Can you say Valentines gifts?
If you feel a great wind, it's from my needles moving at light speed. Woooosh!
THE RACE IS ON!!!
