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.

Commitment to Finishing
I, Boogie, take you, UFO's and WIP's, to be my project, loving what I know of you, and trusting what I do not yet know. I eagerly anticipate the chance to knit together, getting to know the project you will become, and falling in love a little more every day. I promise to love and cherish you through whatever knitting may bring us.
I'm promising to work on only the items that have currently been cast on. It's a lot. It's not like I'll be bored or that there isn't plenty to choose from. This is only a trial marriage and with provisions. I'm trying this until I can't take it anymore and then it's divorce court.
To make this an easier transition, I made sure that more stuff was cast on.
Socks for SuperDadYarn: Boogie DK Superwash
Pattern: Plain ribbed toe up socks
I already have socks cast on for SuperMom. I think my Mom reads here time to time so I'm not giving up which socks in the WIP pile are hers. Sorry Mom, I know you like to snoop, no luck today.
Baby Boogie's Xmas Sweater and Girl Beast's *New Year's Sweater
*I'm a realist, there is slim chance both are getting done for ChristmasYarn: Noro
Mittens for me. It was hard putting these down after 4 rounds. Texas yarn kicks butt. I want to knit so much more on these but I'm trying to get those girls sweaters done.Yarn: Texas in almost Almost Solid Lettuce and Cranberry (not shown yet)
Pattern: Boogie for Spunky Eclectic
Needles: US 2 and 3
Girl Beast Mittens. I started on these last week. It took a while to get her to settle on a yarn. Since her sweater this year will not be handspun, she chose that for her mittens.Yarn: Handspun 2 ply Bulky - Gummi Bear colorway
Pattern: Simple Mittens
There, that was the full disclosure. I still have an adult sweater that is half done that needs to be completed by the end of the month. That one will be on my lap more than anything. Still, this finishing up is a good thing, even if I had to add to the WIP list.
