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.

The beginning of this year I had to figure out how much stash I really had. I even made a little page, HERE so I could keep track of it. It hasn't gone down but then it hasn't increased much either. It has migrated. Over the years the yarn migrates from the stash closet (or ceiling) in the basement to be moved into the main part of the house. I made a little map for you:
You will notice that there is at least one piece of stash in each room. Yes, in every room. I don't know why, but it always makes it's way around. My stash is a traveling tramp. It goes everywhere and has no shame.
So you see my map up there but I don't need it. Because I know where my stash all is and thanks to my stash page, I know what I have (even if all of it isn't exactly on there). For the most part, I can find it when I need it. Although there are always a few surprises and a few runaways.
Today we're going back to that freezer for a question. I came up with this one as I tried to fit something in my big chest freezer, you'll see next week about my defrosting adventures or woes.
As for knitting....
I'm still on my knitting honeymoon with the Elsa Cormo Wool.
On to Soap... (I figured it fit in with "Clean Mondays")
Evermore Soap Factory finally opened a webshop. This stuff is so cool. I ordered last week and this is what came:
Is that not gorgeous?
Each one was wrapped in it's own pretty paper and labeled nicely. But when you unwrap it....
...It gets even better.
I started using the ylang ylang one and it's so nice. Tiffany is someone I've known online for a few years but that has no influence in what I'm about to say about her soap. Knowing her is what got me to buy the first order. Loving the soap is what got me to place a second order all ready. The soap is so nice and my skin feels softer. Really it does. Some handmade soaps leave the skin a bit tacky, not these. SOFT. The scent lasts a while on my skin, that's really nice. Everytime I get a wiff of myself (instead of passing out) I want to go take another shower. I feel all girly.
Thank you all for the wonderful birthday greetings. M is very happy to be 6 and she gets to go shopping today with my Mom, which I think makes her feel even happier.
