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.

Do you remember...?
Do you remember this yarn picture that I posted Wednesday of last week.
Do you remember that I said I was trying NOT to cast on for what was in my mind? I guess I wasn't trying all that hard. Wednesday night I cast on. Sunday I bound off the PAIR. That's right. I was dedicated and kept with it until the whole pair was done.
Just look at them:
Wouldn't you have kept knitting too?
I patterned this sock after last years favorite sock. You can get the fabulous pattern from HERE.
My sock had 56 sts to accomodate the Skully from Adrian. Where Adrian had diamonds, I added hearts. Why hearts? Because I love skulls and I'm oh so girly. I used a DK weight yarn but you could definitely do it in sock weight with 70 stitches.
I've also discovered the afterthought heel. It's the new technique, new for me that is. I know many of you will just tell me that I'm way behind. I think that's pretty obvious at times. You see, I live under a rock.
Now for the Contest....
Holy cow do you people like your socks! And you all know a ton of free patterns on line. Some I knew and some I didn't. It's incredible the amount of patterns I have now. Keep 'em coming. I want to try and make sure we get them all. I have enough sock yarn to knit them all but not enough time.
Isn't time the bane of all knitters. If only I could retire at 32, I could knit and spin all day long. Of course if you look at my social security statement you'll see that I won't be able to retire until, well... ever.
