Happy 2007!

Face it, I'm determined that this year has to be far better than last. So there!

To be sure that I stick to my knitting, as it were, I have joined Martheme's UFO Knit-along. I have the following to finish this month:

    - A cotton tank top for which the pieces have been lying around for a couple of years. All I have to do is sew it up. I'm not sure I like it any more; it will be given away;
    - A pair of cable-and-rib socks in grey Scheepjes wool, destined for a friend who asked me to make them for a friend of hers. I'm on the foot of Sock #1.
    - An Aran-style toque in navy; this is a kid's hat, from my CKS (Charity Knitting Stash).

In the months to follow, I vow to finish:

    - My Shetland Shawl from The Best of Knitter's Shawls and Scarves;
    - A not-so-cropped cable jacket from a 2005 issue of VK;
    - A cardi in Debbie Bliss Ashtrakan -- cherry red -- for me to wear travelling in May (more on that later);
    - A fuschia cotton bolero from the cover of a 2005 issue of the BritKnit magazine, Simply Knitting; and
    - A royal blue cotton version of Sally Melville's garter stitch tunic from The Knit Stitch.

Ahem. That ought to take me a good portion of the rest of this year, especially if it intersperse it with charity bits and bobs!

Are you in? On your mark! Get set! KNIT!!
