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.

Choosing from an Update
Spunky Super with Nylon
How does one choose?
I love my colorways. Obviously or I wouldn't be doing them.
How do I let some of them go?
How do I choose which ones I need to knit/spin and which ones I can list all that I've dyed?
This is a business first and foremost and I have to pay for the yarn that I use. If I stashed away one of each color I liked then we wouldn't be eating very much. I would lose weight.
So really, how do I know what to buy from myself?
First there are the colorways that speak to me. As I dye them, as I see them dry, as they are completed, I just know that I have to make them mine. This is one such colorway:
I know the picture isn't a good representation of the colorway, stupid clouds
Gotta love baby socks!
Check out that garter short row heel. I love those for kid socks. I might actually need one on my next pair too. About 60 yards will make a pair of shorty (9-12mo) baby socks. Boogie Baby seems to always kick off the longer socks so they look like little flippers. I fashioned these after a pair of socks that seem to stay on her feet longer than most.
Then there are the times a sock yarn is chosen for me.

Yeah, that's right. Dog.
It was the first sunny day in a while so I put the dogs out on the run and set myself up to take pictures out of reach of any dog. This picture shows just how far the dog run was able to stretch. This was as far as she could strain against the run. Sneaky thing picked an oportune time when I was framing up a picture to make her move. She's fast. I chased to the other end of the run limits. Oh it was great fun.
Someone in the family will soon have "Diet Coke" socks.
