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.

People seem to love to challenge me.
What is it?
And why can't I pass up a challenge?
The last challenge came and went with neither of us finishing our sweaters within the given deadline. But when I went back to finish it, I was only 6 rows away from finishing the knitting. 6 rows! I could have stayed up an extra hour and finished. If only I had know how I wanted to finish off the sweater. Blasted hoodies and their mind confusion.
Now there has been a new challenge placed on me. One that has finished projects and a gift at the end. One that seems impossible to but I must try. I must knit. Knit like the wind. again
The challenge was thrown at me by Miss RoseByAny in a public forum. That's right it was thrown right at me in PUBLIC.
How could I turn it down?
The challenge is to finish knitting 8 pairs of socks by the end of February. Why 8? That just happens to sadly be the number of socks I had as UFO's or on the needles at the time of the challenge.
or if you wish
This is where I am so far:
Dad's socks are done! They are just a simple pattern done in my handspun. Nice and warm for a daddy that works construction out in the cold.
The single socks waiting for a mate:
that sock all the way to the left there is one I cast on and finished over the weekend. If only I had done that with a UFO sock instead
The socks that aren't quite that far yet:
The socks I'm trying not to cast on for:
Trying not to cast on for something new is a new concept as of late. If I feel like casting on something new that's just what I've been doing. I think someone wants to see a FO. Not to mention she's collecting socks.
