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'm a joiner
I don't know what's come over me but I've joined a couple of knit along type things. I think I have valid reasons and it has given me a chance to break out new projects.
I love a good sock.These are the RPM socks from Knitty in my Gunsmoke Sport yarn. Hopefully I'll get these done in time to be birthday presents for Dad. I have a whole month, should be easy, right?
Watching movies and knitting.
I do that any way.
This is just an interesting way to talk about and get recommendations for movies. Who knows? A movie may inspire me to knit something different. in fact Knit.1 magazine just did their fall issue on "TV". But, um, I don't think I'll be knitting anything from there. I'm just not "hip" enough, although some of the items are inspiring.
Warm Hands Knit along.
Sandy has taken on the task of hosting this again. And she's knitting some amazing mittens. Me, I just finished the mohair ones and now I'll soon be starting some thrummed ones as a gift for a friend. This uses my thrummed mitten kit in the Mandy colorway. I think I'll make GirlBeast her winter mittens first though. I just need to work with her at figuring out the color she'll wear. I made fair isle ones for her last year that didn't get worn, we won't be doing that again.
Dye, Spin, Knit.
Not like this one is a stretch for me. I suppose that makes it the perfect "along" to join. Something was mentioned about extra points for spindle spinning something. Well, I can do that. It's all about the points right. I've been working on this: This is my Shuksan spindle with South African Fine in the Hotrod colorway. Perfect for socks.
THANK YOU ALL FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES Boogie Babe gives smooches to you all. I know it looks like she's smooching her reflection in the oven door, really she is thanking you all for the birthday love.
