Another distraction

I've spoken before about my knitting ADD. Well, I've come across another project to distract me from the Vine Lace Cardigan.

Its Reid from Besides the fact that I saw it online the first day and downloaded it WITH A MISTAKE and spent nearly all of knit night trying to figure out what was wrong with ME and why I couldn't figure out the chart, I'm lovin it. I'm making it for my to be 2 year old niece, L, for her birthday in July. I've chosen the light mint green in Paton's Grace for the main color but haven't decided on the edging.

And then I was talking to my dad and found out that my 4 year old niece, T, has rediscovered the bunny I made for her last Easter (from Debbie Bliss Toy Knits). Its her newest bedtime buddy and she even insists on going through the ritual of removing his sweater before going to sleep. SWEET!

I'm hoping to make the same Reid cardigan for T cause it is the perfect weight for a child living in the south.

That's all for now.

Has it been that long?

I found myself hitting my Bloglines link and getting frustrated that there aren't new entries of my favorite blogs to read! Then I thought, "oh, that's right! I have a blog that I haven't touched in over a week!" Duh!

Honestly nothing to report. I only picked up the green cardigan yesterday. I rewrote the left front instructions some time ago, but I have honestly been afraid to start the 2 front panels. I wasn't really knitting at all. Maybe I over-extended myself with the baby blanket. Ah, well, at least I've started again.

So, see, this is why I've not posted! Nothing to say!
