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.

Gus is a blonde dutchman standing about 3 feet tall.
He's made of the finest Birch plywood and is fully lacquered (not liquered, don't get the two confused)
He likes long treadles and fine fibers.
Turn ons include BFL, Alpaca, and Corriedale.
Turn offs include any commercially made yarn and five year old girls that think they know it all.
Yes, folks, Gus is a true spinner's dream.
And he's MINE.
The heartbreak of Barbie being so injured was quickly replaced with the love of Gus. I'm sure there will be rumors and whispers behind the hands about just how quickly I replaced the plastic girl. But I don't care. Neither does Gus.
Sticks and stones may mar his finish but names... he can't hear them because he has no ears. HA!
Gus and I haven't been apart much since he arrived on Friday. It was love at first treadle. For me and for Bettie:
She hasn't left Gus's side. I think Bettie might be "sweet" on Gus. Do you think this might be my chance for a few little wheelettes?
As soon as the yarn is dry I'll have many skeins of fun yarns to show off. Gus is a definite producer. In lieu of yarn I have my final BPSP package from the fabulous Nicole of Big Sister.
Um, there may have been a package of lovely Merino that was in there that has already made it's way to Gus... Thank you Nicole!
