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.

How are Dad's replacement socks coming along?
I have no good excuse.
I've tried to come up with some really good excuse. I'm usually quite good at excuses. I have been since I was a teenager. Today though, I've got nothing. Not a single creative excuse.
Here's where the socks are now:
Yes, I know I'm close to finishing the sock part of the second sock, then I can move on to the heels. I love afterthought heels. Still, knowing that hasn't been enough to spur me on to knitting more on these socks
I did finish a pair of these this week:
I love my own sock yarn, I always have. Handspun is still my favorite but the washability and silky feel of this sport weight is taking a close second. I couldn't seem to tear myself away from it to knit on Dad's socks. Unfortunately the color I chose just doesn't work for Dad. Well, maybe it would work but I like them dangit, so I made short socks for me. Short socks for my size 7's used only one skein of yarn, with very little left over.
I'm going to swear now that the next socks I start will be in a manly color or I'll finish Dad's other socks. Promise. Poor Daddy and his cold feet. But then I do have my eye on a could of other girly colors. I really need some pink socks....
And just because I can't seem to do anything without a curious pup in the way. This was my first picture of the socks:
