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.

That's the degrees in Farenheit today. I feel bad for all the people that have to work outside, like Boogie Dad, but frankly it's not winter without a little cold weather. I might actually light a fire in the fireplace this year, something I thought I would do without. Not to mention, knitting on cold days is somehow much more satisfying than knitting during the hot days summer.
So what have I been working on?
Miss Kate is collecting fun fur hats for the kids at Children's Hospital. If you click the link you'll get the poop on what's up and why fun fur. So I left my warm little house and bought some fun fur-ish stuff. The actual fun fur I could find seemed scratchy so I spent my time at Joann's fondling balls. Of course if the balls don't already belong to someone, you don't get ejected from the store. It's hard a lesson to learn. Only fondle balls that don't already belong to another knitter. So I settled on nylon stuff that has a fun fur like appearance. It's not that mass of porcupine quills but it doesn't feel like porcupine quills either. See that whitish one? It's so riculously soft and slippery that the ball of yarn is falling apart. Luckily that means it doesn't knot up either so tangles aren't hard to get apart. Which means I haven't thrown any projects across the room lately.
Just to make sure I have an overabundance of projects on the needles...Yes that would be a sleeve. A big sleeve. I'm not giving up what it is yet. It's a new pattern. Most of the yarn being used is Cascade 220.
Because some of you have asked....
Slowing down? I'm spending more time trying to figure out how to get out of having to slow down than actually slowing down. I've not begged my doctor for valium or some other mind altering drug to aid in the "slowing down". I'm still not convinced that I HAVE to slow down. Yeah, the last words of someone being shut in the large van taking her off to the boobie hatch. mmm, padded rooms.
