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.

Everyone and their dog has a recipe for Apple Crisp. I'm pretty sure though, that I make mine different than most. Mine is sugar and gluten free. Some of you are skipping right to the knitting content but really it's not bad. I quite like it.
See, it looks good:
Peel, core and slice 6 med-large sized MacIntosh Apples.
Put them in your oven safe pan. Sprinkle with nutmeg and Cinnamon.
1 cup oats
1/4 cup buckwheat (yes, this is gluten free)
1/4 cup Barley Malt sweetener
water, just to moisten if needed.
Crumble this over the apples.
Bake at 350F with tin foil covering it for 30 minutes.
Uncover, bake until crispy and apples have reduced.
All of you that went to Rhinebeck had nothing on the show that I went to on Saturday. Oh, I know you think you had it good. You were surrounded in fiber and yarn and all kinds of fun stuff.
I went to a different show that was quite a bit closer to us.
It was a gun show.
You see, Rhinebeck is easy. There is no challenge there.
Every time you turn around there is more fiber. More yarn.
You know I looked for something to spin or knit at the Gun Show.
I found something too:
Ahh yes, the satisfaction of turning a Gun Show into my own personal little fiber hunt. Now to figure out something wild to make with this parachute cord. I bet it's durable.
