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.

List Your FO's
You can find them all HERE. I even updated it all nice and neat. There are still several pictures missing but those I won't be able to post until the fall of 2007.
The final tally is 46 projects:
1 linen cloth
List Your Works In Progress
You have to be kidding me here. There are 27 projects.
Go HERE if you really want to see the horror that is my WIP pile.
What skeletons are in your knitting basket?
I think the thing that I hate having in there the most is a sweater from my handspun that I had great mojo for in 2005. I dont think I picked it up at all in 2006. I love it but I lost interest in working on it as new projects came along. I'll finish it someday I'm sure.
What was your favorite project of 2006?
It's hard to pick one. The one that comes to mind is one that I can't even show you. It would be the Gansey socks that I did. There are a handful of people that did see them and if it wasn't an item that had to go to a publication, there would have been a fight for them. My favorite that I can show you is:
I'm wearing them right now in fact. I love these socks.
What projects will you never knit again?
I don't think there was anything this past year that I will NEVER knit again. I wasn't fond of knitting with Linen, but I was really pleased with the end project. I'd like to knit a tank top out of it someday.
What was your major knitting accomplishment in 2006?
That would probably have to be this sweater:
It's a really nice sweater that I wish I still had, but the accomplishment comes in the fact that it took me 9 days from the time the yarn arrived, swatch, pattern creation, knitting, blocking, and sent off to the publisher. It let me know that even though I don't like to work that fast, I can do it.
What was your favorite yarn of 2006?
This yarn was for the Gansey socks that I did. I loved it so much that even before I had finished the socks, I had ordered more for me just so I could duplicate the socks.
What's your favorite yarn overall?
Overall? You're killing me with these questions.
I'd have to choose my handpainted yarns. I'm having so much fun working with them and coming up with new patterns. I could go on forever.
What new knitting techniques did you learn in 2006?
I don't think I did anything new in 2006. At least I can't remember doing any new techniques.
What are your knitting goals for 2007?
My goal is to try and finish a few more WIP's and to work a bit more from Stash. I am working on redoing that still. I have the list of all the "sweater" amounts of yarns done, now it's time for the socks. I think I'm avoiding that. Maybe tomorrow.
