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
This is the last installment, and most expensive, of my gift buying guide. This is for the ultimate of luxury wish lists. Still, I recommend for the less than wealthy of us, to go to any of the indie sites for awesome affordable items. Many of which can be found listed on my link page.
Last week's high end items just weren't expensive enough...
How about the Robin Spinning wheels? They finally have a web page. Not like they need one, their reputation is known amongst spinners. Each wheel is hand made in Maine and they have a good sized waiting list too.
Still not expensive enough?
How about the Golding Wheels. They also make some really beautiful spindles.
If I were going to send you somewhere for some beautiful and expensive spindles, I'd send you to Bosworth to get a Mammoth Tooth spindle. While you're there get one for me too please.
So you don't spin and you're looking for some really expensive yarn? How about getting a Buffalo knit kit. I bet they're really soft and warm. Although I'm still trying to figure out the need for a buffalo bikini. hmmm, now that I think about it, the boobage does get damn cold on those wintry days.
Or you can get some luscious Qiviut yarn. This company has it many colors. Usually I only see it in brown. This stuff is luxury at it's finest.
Here at Folk Knits you can get Quivit kits. Beautiful, beautiful items.
The house is quiet.
My shopping has been completed (we're not even talking about wrapping the things).
I'm heading off to work in the hopes that I'll complete my day early and I can go
