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 question about cleaning cars came up because I realized that I have this car for over a year and not once have I cleaned it. I keep the trash off the floor (most of the time) but I let the rain take care of the rest. If there was a lot of mud stuck to the car, I'd clean it for sure.
The car isn't used much. in fact we've only added 5 thousand miles to it this year. Not much chance to get it dirty. I'm sure if I used it more, it would be dirtier. But then, I can't guarantee that I'd wash it more either.
This week I want you to think about the last time you dropped a cookie, a piece of carrot or something else that is salvageable if you pick it up. Do you have a rule as to whether you can eat it or not?
I got some prime knitting time this weekend sitting with Gram. She's making a big trip today. Her son in California is quite ill so she's heading out there to see him. Of course she isn't going alone, Mom will be helping her make the trip. Her first question was "Can I bring my crochet hook on the plane?". I assured her that she'd be fine and then I think she felt settled to take the trip. I know I wouldn't want to make that trip without my knitting.
So I sat with her for some time over the weekend. I'm working on a sweater on size 4 needles at about 300 sts per row. Gram is crocheting an afghan that is 4 feet wide on a size J hook (I think) For every 2 crochet rows Gram would make, I'd get one knit row done. Not that it was a race, but it was just interesting to see her speedy fingers going zoom zoom zoom.
This week I'll be knitting and hoping that Gram and Mom make a safe trip to California and back to Maine later in the week.
