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.

Not a news flash?
No, I suppose to most of you it wouldn't be.
I'm not surprised at stockinette curling. Well, ok, I lie. For some reason when I really really don't want it to curl, I'm surprised that my project would dare go against my great will and curl anyway.
The audacity of some projects! How dare they know the rules of stockinette and stick to them. Bah! I am supreme knitter in my little household. If I say stockinette should lay flat, it should lay flat.
This is curling alot:
That is about half of a baby sweater. I suppose it's ok that it's curling as it will be seemed at some point. I know. Here I am going on aout stockinette curling and it doesn't really matter in the long range. The thing is, I don't want it to curl. It's making it a pain in the butt to knit on. I like to look at all the pretty stripes as I knit and with this curling, I can't. Grrr.
Maybe going public with my whine will work. Or maybe I'll drag my knitting over to the ironing board and give it a solid steaming so it will lay flat. I need to look at my stripes.
