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.

It's that time of the year
Everyone is talking stash and FO's. They're talking about a great desire to finish up their UFO's or as Scout suggests, Just Frog it!.
Then there are all those that are setting up groups where you talk of yarn diets and stash only knitting pledges.
Of course there are bunches of other groups that are centered around clearing up the stash, the UFO's and WIP's. I admire you all for putting your
I have a tendency to rebel against these things. Even though I have a crazy stash (I'm still working on cataloging it all), you won't see my name up there. Rules are made to be broken. I'm on the anti-diet. While I really want to finish UFO's and knit from stash, I know I'm a rule breaker. If I sign up, you know I'll cast on for 12 projects and go on a yarn buying spree just to give myself some cushion to survive it. You have your yarn diet, I'll be over here on the wool pig plan stuffing the rafters with bags of yarn. 1. is mostly cascade, elann finds, and miscellaneous stuff. 2. is all Noro 3. is peace fleece, cotton ease, rowan, and some patons in there too. If only there wasn't all this duct work down there, I'd have more space. Silly duct work, taking up valuable yarn real estate.
I wish I had a good knitting project to show you. The big project of this week has been to organize the shop. I don't think I've gotten much knitting done. All my knitting time has been eaten up with organizing. It's looking better though: Over the holidays everything became pretty crazy and things were left in the boxes they were shipped in. Well, technically they're sitll in the boxes they were shipped in, it just looks better. I couldn't see what I had in stock. I knew what box they were in, but I knew it could be easier than that. Now I have it all nice and neat. I did have another good reason to clean. These two devices of supreme torture held all the boxes. Now they'll be what I use to run myself ugly.I'll be doing at least 100 miles between now and April. I'm hoping this is what gets me healthy and out on the road running this spring. My pretty pink sneakers that I bought 2 years ago have yet to be punished on the roads. Slowly but surely, I'll get there.
