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.

sockity sockity sock
Thank you all for your decreasing comments. Stupid Haloscan didn't send any comments to me but I want you to know I appreciate them all. I tried the SSK in the way mentioned by so many. I love it. Slip one knitwise, slip one purlwise, K together. I'll post some pictures on Monday. My gram only did SKP and that's what I've always done. Funny how we get stuck in our ways. I love figuring out new ways for the same thing. You all rock!
I've fully started to NEED to knit all these socks.
The challenge lit a little fire under my needles.
I must knit socks.
I must knit all my UFO socks.
I've made a deal with myself. Finish one UFO sock and I get to cast on for whatever new sock I want to. I'm going to knit knit knit socks until the end of February. Now I want to see how many I'll finish.
Maybe I'll knit so many I won't need to knit any for a while.
Maybe I'll knit so many I won't want to knit any for a while.
Maybe this will last another week and I'll abandon it for some pretty sweater thing wagging it's sexy yarn in my face.
Here's the one I finished on Wednesday night:
I think I'm getting worse at taking photos
"More Pie" Handspun yarn done in my usual short sock pattern.
I love me some short socks. Especially in my handspun. I think I need to start spinning some sparkly yarn for more short socks.
With all the socks on the brain I want to start to collect free online sock patterns. For that I need your help. Here's the deal:
Send me a free online sock pattern to Boogie contest and your name will go into a hat to win some Lorna's Laces sock yarn in Glenwood.
