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.

Knitting in the New Year
I did indeed spend some couch time over the weekend. Not as much as I would have liked. Short of gluing my butt to the couch and hiring a servant, I don't think anytime would have been enough.
Last year on new Years day I cast on for a new project. It was a quick project that was done the same day but none the less, it was a new project. It set how the year was going to continue. I ended with 27 UFO's. I want to try and wittle that down by half. I spent the weekend working on an old project. Baltic.I finished the front and I'm 3/4 up the back. I don't know why I set it down, this sucker is easy.
I also spent some time with Dad's next pair of socks, already on the needles. The photo for those looked weird and frosty so I'm not even going to bother posting that. I had swatched and written the pattern out for Mom's new sweater last week. I wanted to cast on for that, but I avoided it. We didn't want any new project juju slipping into our New year. Yes, it's a silly notion but it's my notion.
For those that are questioning the magknits pattern:
Here it is laid out on the floor so you can see it better:
