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.

When I was asked, I said I would but I didn't think it was possible.
Yeah, I lied. My mind was being realistic for a change. Of course my mouth could never voice that. The mouth is always a little insane.
I thought 16 days for a sweater was nuts. I know some of you out there can do a sweater in 9 days with no problems. Even with work and kids I know there are those of you that can do this. I just didn't think that I could do this.
Ok, so I'm obsessing a bit here, but to me this is an amazing accomplishment. A worsted weight sweater in 9 days. From the afternoon on Friday the 3rd until last night. 9 days to knit a sweater, seam it and have ALL the ends woven in. I will meet my deadline, assuming it dries in time. I didn't lie afterall.
So what if my hands feel like they're rusting. I swear they actually squeek when moved. You should be able to hear them from where you are. It's a loud creaky noise like the sound of an old haunted house door in a horror flick. A couple of hot wax treatments and after work today I'll be ready to go again.
I'm 3 days late for the Olympic knitting.
Better late than never....
Where's that coffee?
I have a show to get ready for and a Baltic to knit.
SPA in 4 days!
