Yeah, I know it's been a while since an update, so here:
For the Christmas Knitting category:
Dad's Peekaboo mittens,

Mom's Silver's Sock Class sock number 1,

Amy's Pretty Puffs slouchy hat,

And now I'm working on my mom's other sock, the Thorpe hat, and Riverwalk - an open beaded scarf:

And Mark and I are going to start our Etsy store soon. So far, we have ideas of making jewelry, crocheted Java Jackets, stitch markers, belts made out of neckties, and some knitted hairbows. He's the one making jewelry and he's more into crocheting than I am. I do have my mom's sewing machine here with me, so I can make other stuff like wallets and I don't know what else. We need to come up with a style for the store. So, if you have any ideas on what that style should be or what else we could sell, post a comment here or find me on Facebook. I'm really into recycling/upcycling stuff.

Other than the knitting and the store, I've been a little gardener - sort of:

The first picture is chamomile. The three from the left are lavender, chamomile, and lemon balm. My brother gave me the kit for Christmas. Thank you! So far, so good.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Let us celebrate what that wonderful man has done for our world.
