19 Unfinished Projects - Yikes!

I can't believe it's almost two weeks since I have posted. I am just not use to working anymore and it's cutting into my knitting time. I am not knitting as much as I would like to. I sat down the other day and made of list of all the things I was knitting and had not finished. I came up with 18 projects and just added another one! I have to get knitting!

I did finish the February KAL for my dishcloth group. It was a cute cloth to knit. It's called Kiss Me by Lisa Millan. I used Peaches and Creme in rose pink with size 6 needles.

I am working on a scarf for an auction for the benefit of the Child Advocacy Center. I need to get this completed before the end of March. I am using a pattern from the book Scarf style called Vintage Velvet by Lisa Daniels. The yarn is Muench Touch Me in Navy Blue and I am using size 8 needles. The yarn is really great to feel. Once I finish it, I have to felt it. It gets even nicer then. I used this yarn once before and made a small scarf. It's amazing how it comes out. Once I finish this scarf, I am definately making another for myself in this same pattern. Fortunately, I already have some yarn and won't have to buy more.

I am also working on my Central Park Hoodie. No new pictures of that yet.

I have purchased some yarn. I got some more Flat Fleet yarn. It's from their sock club. The color is great for Valentine's Day.

And, I got more sock yarn from the Loopy Ewe. Colinette Jitterbug in Bright Charcoal and Sereknity in Cowgirl. Maybe this will get me back to knitting socks. I still have two different pair to finish.

Well, I better get back to my 19 projects. Maybe I can finish one up in the next week. Uh, Oh - I have another KAL coming up in my dishcloth group this week. That will make it 20 projects. I better get knitting. Is there anyone else who has a bunch of projects in the works like me?

Me, too! I have so many works in progress that I'm scared to count!

I go through stages where I can't quite settle on the perfect project and end up casting on like an ADD yarn addict. But then it gets bad cuz the choices I make when I'm in that sort of state of mind aren't always good ones and some really bad mathes of yarn and pattern can be made to then live in the world of WIP hell for eternity.
