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.

I've chosen my team for the Knitting Olympics. Which happens to start today. I've not lost all track of time. Of course now that every day seems like a week the Olympics will feel like they're lasting for several months and not just 16 days. Could that be a plus when you're trying to knit like mad?
Still, until I saw this team I thought I might need to drop out of the running. I know that with the hyped up, bleary eyed support of team caffeine, I can do the most of Baltic.
With the warm cup of black coffee by my side, I can do it.
With the jittery hands that say one more sip, one more stitch, I can do it.
With a heart that beats like the wings of a hummingbird, I'll sip once more and I can do it.
With browning teeth and a need to pee constantly, I can do it.
I'll be missing a few days in the beginning of these Olympics due to the sweater I mentioned yesterday. But with trusty caffeine by my side, I will persevere. I'll keep going even if I look like this:
Ok, so I already sort of look like that, only with shorter reddish hair.
Roast them beans.
Brew me a giant cup.
I don't know if I've finally flipped my lid but I believe I will get the body of Baltic done before the flame is out. Yeah, I'm not the most stable person right now. So don't argue with me. The body of Baltic will keep my mind and body busy while my evenings are spent eyes glued to the Olympics on TV. Go USA and all you Olympic Knitters in all countries.
