Alright, I caved and started one of my projects.  A tiny one, because I wanted to feel accomplished about something.  It's a dishcloth!  I'm not weaving in ends and taking pictures until after New Year's, though, so I don't feel as bad about doing it early.  It's this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/muguets-lily-dishcloth in white Peaches'n'Cream.

It's almost 2011! Woo!

Aisy - I love that pattern! You can never really have too many great dishcloth patterns lying around. Smiley

I've technically finished two projects and started on two.   Tongue  I was scared that if I didn't seize the momentum I was feeling, I'd never get anything done.  If it's any consolation, my two finished items are pretty tiny.

Ooooh I love that dishcloth!  I need to find some more cute ones so I can get going on those.  I made a cat one for my MIL, but I don't think I want cat cloths for my home. (except maybe the ones that would be designated to clean up said cat-puke)

I got working on my DD's market skirts last night, and her felt board is almost done.  I'll finish a few flowers tonight, and sew the skirts together.  But . . . her birthday is Tuesday, and I have to get them done before then!

And, can I just say, that I am in awe of anyone who can embroider well?  I can fake it, but I love seeing projects done by people who really know what they are doing!  Smiley

That's exactly how I feel and why I haven't joined an embroidery swap even though I desperately want a hoop wall.  Troublet, your hoop is gorgeous. 

I'm still not making a list, although I have two afghans I would like to make (I've done one square of each so I have a ways to go) and several other WIPs that I've been chipping away at these last few weeks.  My first project of 2011 is a mystery even to me.   Grin  Can't wait to see what I finish first.

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley
