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.

I've spinning tons lately. Less knitting more spinning. I've been working at finishing up projects and starting new ones. I've been up since 5 with no coffee and the brain isn't thinking in words. I can however provide photos.
Remember Twisted Knitters? This is my project for that. I had been spinning it on spindle here and there in between other projects. I finished it up last week, wound it into a center pull ball and am plying it. It's 3 ounces of South African Fine in the Hot Rod Colorway. I could have had the plying done by now but I'm bringing this to SPA with me for a plying on the spindle demo.
Speaking of SPA - I added a ticker to the top of my page. Just over 3 weeks to go. I can't wait!
There is still more spinning:
A new sweater project. I'm 3 of 6 or 8 bobbins into it. I'll be writing an article for Knittyspin to go along with it too.
This is yarn that I started when I first got my Louet almost a year ago. I don't know why but I chose to test out the newest wheel to the stable by making a navajo three ply that is DK weight. Sock yarn of course. I finally finished up the second skein. It's not shown because it was drying and wet yarn can catch a cold if it goes out in the snow. The colorway is Boogie Woogie and I wouldn't mind making more in this color.
This was a club fiber. Berry Pickin' in BFL. I had sampled it as a thick and thin but I loved it so much I had to do a 2 ply. Those white flecks are snow, I took the photos as it started to snow the other day.
Finally, I finished the yarn for GirlBeast's sweater. I have more to say on this but it's a whole other entry and my brain still doesn't seem to be able to form words.
