First FO of 2007

So I sat here, thumbing through many projects, untouched, ideas that have been swimming in my head for what seems like forever, and then all I could do was knit up a quick fix. I really needed to start and finish a project within the first week of this new year for some self satisfaction. So I chose Loop-d-Loop's Ballet T-Shirt. Scroll down the page to the fourth pattern up. I've had the pattern for a while but never got around to it. I'm thrilled that it only took a little over 3 hours to complete. So I'll probably knit a few more, in different yarns and colors, whenever I feel a need for a quick project. It's knit on size 15 circulars with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. Normally, I like using small needles and thinner yarn, so it felt a little strange until I adjusted to the needle size and yarn thickness. It was fun to knit.

Of course, it never fails, when I try to do anything, my curious little kitty has to investigate anything new or different. So here she is, checking out my ballet-t before I could get any decent pictures.

Every year I swear I'm going to use up my yarn stash and not buy anything new until I do. Or at least until I use up half. OK, at least knit up some of what I have already. But why should this year be any different? I already have a yarn order on the way. Heh! Can't wait to ogle and touch the stuff, line them up with the rest, make my plans for each and every one, then do whatever pleases me at the moment without a thought to what's waiting in the wings. So it goes.

Also, your kitty is v.v. cute.
