Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone had a good holiday! Here is what's going on in the life of Erica...

Current knitting projects, like I said before, are the Maine Morning Mitts, the Cables and Lace Afghan, and the February Lady Sweater. I still don't have pics of the sweater, but I have FINALLY taken pics of the other two.

Maine Morning Mitts

Yes, I know they're not very far along. Apparently I can't comprehend basic knitting instructions until I read, frog, read, frog, and re-read again. Maybe I shouldn't try to knit after working 10-11 hour days. Just doesn't quite work for me.

Cables and Lace Afghan

This is obviously pictures of the squares blocking. It's done in really cheap acrylic Red Heart Super Saver 1 lb yarn because I know that beautiful monster of a dog (the cute pic at the top of the page) will get the most use out of it and it's going to need to be washed a lot.

Other projects that are in the works are that chair that I mentioned before, totally cute by the way, and I bought a learn to spin kit from Ma and Pa Spindles. Maybe I can actually get pics of those tomorrow since I finally have a day off. My bank account is totally loving this overtime, but damn, I have no time for anything FUN! I wanna knit more!

xoxo Erica :)

Starting Off

So here's the first post. Not much to say today. Had a horrible day at work...people are assholes. I'm really enjoying this beer though. I just opened my Etsy store about a week ago and haven't had any sales yet. I really need to stock it up more, but time is not on my side right now. I have 3 scarves up for sale. They are way cute though. I have a rocking chair that has been refinished and now I have to recover the seat and it will be up for sale too. Knitting projects on the table right now are:

#1 Maine Morning Mitts

#2 Cables & Lace Afghan

#3 February Lady Sweater

All of these projects have been started, I just don't have blog worthy pics of them yet. I'm also going to start working on some baby booties because one of my work customers just opened up a store here in town called Baby Chic Boutique and said she would love to sell some of my handmade items. I guess that's all for now. Hopefully this blog will take off better than my last one.

xoxo Erica
