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 still Knit!
I didn't completely cross over to crochet.
Most of my sick time is still spent knitting. Did I thank you all for your wonderful thoughts? Thank you. Still not completely well but it's a great excuse to quit work a couple hours early each day to go lay in bed and knit.
And knit I did:
I didn't do both of them. Way back last year some time... No I couldn't be bothered to try and find it. I'm that lazy right now. Last year Miss Purlewe and I decided to trade yarns and knit each other a retro prep. She finished my sweater for the Knitting Olympics and I just finished hers. Of course the pink sweater that Purlewe knit is all nicely blocked with ends woven in.
I'm sending her the black one done in Noro with the ends out all over the place and still wonky in need of a block. I'm not a big fat jerk, really I'm not. My desire to send it this way is to make sure it fits before it's steeked. I left it all raggey so it would be easier to rip in case I had to. As we all know, once you cut your yarn, there's no turning back. Frogging is impossible or fruitless at that point.
