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.

Knitting Olympics Medal
It's all about the process. Sometime Friday the joking subsided and I finally admitted to myself there was no chance for a medal unless I cast the "process" aside and worked for the product.
I just couldn't do that. I wanted to enjoy this knit and so I accepted the lack of a gold medal and settled for the buffalo chip.
It's a little stinky when you hang it around your neck but hey, it's unique. And have you felt the fleece of a buffalo? Oooh, it's soft and lovely. It's like buttah. Sadly I just got the chip and no fleece. Maybe next time.
So here's where Baltic is getting left. Because, yes, I'm abandoning her because of other knits that need to be done....
And now a recap on the inexpensive wheels with all the wheels I forgot added in.
Wheels under $300
The Babe line of wheels.
The Louet S17 kit from Hello Yarn
The Kromski Prelude unfinished from the Woolery
The HitchHiker from The Merlin tree
The Ashford Kiwi from the Woolery
The Fricke wheels from Carolina Homespun
I'm going to take my chip medal and go spin before I have to start work.
