Boogie Woogie Woogie

Yes, Boogie is now finished! And I have to say that it looks really great! I actually looked at it and thought, "did I really make that?". It really needs to be blocked, but other than that it is perfect.


7mm 32" Addi Turbo
4 Balls of Rowan Rowans
pun (used a double strand)

I'd actually recommend knitting this patt
ern. It was fairly quick, and it just looks so good once it's finished! It goes perfectly with blue jeans. I think I might sew up the shoulders a bit more though, because the top of the neck just kind of sticks out. I think it looks a little bit funny, but apparently it's not noticable to the general public. That's what Stu thinks anyway.

On a happy summer-y note. This was what I had for lunch. OMG! Amazing! Tomatoes are so good right now, I just couldn't help myself. The green stuff is basil from our garden.

I topped it off with some awesome dressing. It's a really light vinagrette that my mom's been making for as long as I can remember. I just guess with proportions and fiddle with it til it's perfect.

Here's what's in it--

Garlic (if you like lots like I do, add lots)
Red wine vinegar (it can also be made with white wine vinegar, or raspberry, or whatever you like)
Olive oil
Dijon mustard (add a little at a time)
Water (add a bit at the end to thin out the dr

Here's the best thing about the dressing--

Don't put too much water in it, and go a little heavier on the Dijon, and it is amazing on new potatoes. Just boil up the potatoes, and throw the dressing on.

I agree, Boogie came out terrific!! Very impressive. Be sure to tell people that you knitted it, otherwise they'd never know. Mmmm, summer tomatoes. Nothing better.
