I've been rather sick for the last week, so I've had a lot of time to sit around my apartment thinking about what I want to knit this year. I say thinking about it, because I didn't get a ton of knitting done the first few days... I was just too out of it to think about anything. I worked a few rows of my second Citron a few times, but with such long rows and such tiny yarn, I got worn out fast.

I knit some dishcloths, because that's what I do, but nothing too exciting there. Just trying to build up some stock for etsy and use up these massive cones of cotton I have. I guess I did change it up by crocheting one. I'm still not a great crocheter, so little things like this help out a lot.

I also started playing with my little looms again. Basically my hands were really sore after knitting for a while, so I thought I might try that thing out again. I want to make a long loop scarf with some crocheted flowers along the join. At this rate though, I'm not going to finish it until 2034. It's really slow going. I need to find one of the kiddie ones with the crank. That would be nice.

I've been working on a hat too for my 11 Hats in 2011, but I'll post that info once I've had a chance to get a photo. It's too dark to attempt one right now. I'll take it outside tomorrow.

I've been making my cards for the 12 projects thing I mentioned last time, but I've gone over 12 (of course). I'm going to stop myself where I am now and just try to focus on the cards I have made. I want to match up the patterns and yarn and make knit kits out of them, so I don't have to dig through several storage areas to find a ball of yarn. I've been debating pulling my stash out of the storage room downstairs for a few days now and it might just be time to go ahead and do it. But not until next weekend! I have too much work to do for school right now and shouldn't be lugging heavy things around with this cold still lingering.
