My Hopes, My Dreams, My Frogpond

So, my first attempt at designing a lace cardigan has failed. Of course I had to finish it, block it and sew it all together to figure this out. The body could fit a rhino and the sleeves fit...nothing. So here it is, the point when I realized the cardigan I have worked on since Spring Break is a lost cause. That, and a small collection of frogs.
Knitting has, however, managed to teach me that there is always a silver lining no matter how dark the cloud, and I have found a loophole on the "no new projects" rule. It's not a NEW project, is it? I'm starting over (Actually I've already finished the hood and am knitting on the yoke) and it's going to be fun! I've used this formula before and not even I can screw it up. Only a few more weeks and I have a neutral colored, perfectly functional hoodie. I'm kind of excited! Since I haven't started a new project in a while, this is the closest I've come to the "new sparkly project" in months...and it's AWESOME! So I'm going to go work on it a little more...I think it's about time for Scrubs reruns. And now, a glamour shot of Tubby Custard.

They are all frog stuffed animals actually, just a badly lit picture that was taked before I ran off to go to work.

And I've still got something up my sleeve....I just don't want to jinx it by blogging about it et.
