Yes, I have come to terms with the fact that I have self-diagnosed Knitting ADD...
take for example my Orangina:

You can see how wonderfully close I am to finishing this one! Only about 3 more inches of ribbing and then simple seaming, but do you think that I can just get it done? NO!

While avoiding Orangina, I decided to start a Clapotis! I have been looking at this pattern ever since I started knitting about a year ago, but I haven't been able to pick a yarn for it. Well, I got over myself and decided to cast on for Clappy with some luxurious Caron Simply Soft in a vibrant grey. Eye catching, eh? Don't knock it! I like the pattern and will do it again with something more colorful, but there is just something about things that are grey and soft that I just can't resist! And who doesn't love a $6 Clapotis?

Anywho...I have been making remarkable progress on this! It is such a mindless knit for me, I have been working on it while I watch TV. BUT I still have more that I should be working on!

I cast on for this about two weeks ago, but I can't bring myself to work on a sweater in the 110 degree heat! This is what I've got so far:

This is the back panel. I am lengthening it about two inches...we'll see how that goes when I get back around to working on it!

AND I also joined a the Amazing Hoodie Swap 3 over on craftster.

I am ridiculously excited about this! I am a hoodie junkie. I can't wait to get started! See, I already want to move on and start another project...jeez, I think I'm hopeless!

I'm laughing at how easily distracted you are to other projects because I'm the same.

You clap looks great in the grey, but get that Orangina finished woman, it won't take long and you'll be glad you did.

The green is such a great colour.
