do you have going right now? I'm in the middle of three knitting projects --a shawl, a pillow and a dishcloth (Yes, I admit it--I'm a new knitter--I can only do flat, square things right now--hehehe :D ). If I get bored or frustrated with one, I move on to the next for awhile and get back to the others later. How about you?

Happy Knitting!

Right now I have 1, but I try to have 2... a simple one and my complicated one. If I have more than that I'd probably have a panic attack and not do any.

Hmm, just one that i'm actually working on, but 3 or 4 counting things that I started but didn't finish! Just taking a break on them, that's all. I have so many project ideas ready though, that I think I may have to start something else soon!

let's see...i have a dishcloth in my bag over there and three afghans at home...and what i am sure is going to be a scarf in a ball of yarn that i wound last night! ;) i actually want to get started on that cuz i think it is gonna be pretty yarn to work with...it just got so crazy knotted last night when i was winding that it took longer than i expected...lol

i would get done with the afghans faster if it weren't so boring to knit them...why do they have to be so darn wide? :lol:

First off...I have adult ADD...lol...so that explains a lot about me...sigh. :doh:

That said...I am making a concerted effort to not add anything new to the needles till the UFO's are completed. (unfinished objects)

Mike's sock-what I am working on NOW.
Baby socks. I am not happy with the way the first one came out. The first baby will be born in 2 weeks?? So I REALLY want to get something done for her pronto.
Sampler Afghan- that is just 6x6 patches, as I see a pattern I want to try. I think I have 4 done.

I did finish up the shawl(this weekend) and socks last night.

I had 4 things going at once. But I would MUCH rather have just 2 going(in addition to the afghan).

In the works, waiting for the others to be done.
Patton's Poncho
Booga Bag - in a dilemma...the bag is smaller than what I first thought...sooo...I think I will wait and get more yarn, and make it as big as I want it to be.
Baby Socks maybe hats too???(2 pair)
Rachel's socks (1 pair)

I find that the want to list is more overwhelming than my actual list of things I am making!!

At this moment I am working on an afghan. I am monogamous to the project that I am working on, so I generally just do one at the time....unless, it's a really large project & I need a break & I'll stop & do a quick project like a pair of socks, scarf or hat or like that.....Generally, tho...1 thing at the time.....NOW...I have my list typed up & taped to the window of one of my stash closets; in these small closets you will find the yarn for these projects that are ready to go....and I am itching to get at them!! But...I must finish the (infamous) wedding afghan. Oh yeah, I :heart: :heart: :heart: knitting socks, so I usually do a pair of socks between each of my other projects. :XX: :XX: :XX:
I :heart: :heart: :heart: to :XX: :XX: :XX: ...it's my disease.

I thought I was the only multitasker :shifty: I generally finish my projects (well, the pillow has been on going for about a year :rollseyes: ) but I MUST have a couple going at the same time.


Happy Knitting,
Purly

Altho...I would have had it finished had I not been under the weather for a few weeks...so, since he is my favorite nephew .... he will understand (not so much tho if he knew i spent so much time running my mouth [so to type/speak] to a bunch of people online, tho...lol)

I have 3 going on right now ...

1 - The Evelope Afghan (http://www.knitlist.com/00gift/envelope-afghan.htm) as a gift for a guy who did a favor for our family.

2 - An afghan from this (http://leisurearts.com/crafts_needlework/item_detail.asp?item_num=3219&search=1#) book to use up some scrap yarn.

3 - An afghan from this (http://image.herrschners.com/itm_img/WW440303.jpg) book. It turned out to be harder than the pattern seems, so I've been avoiding it :oops:

I am very new to knitting, but so far, only one at a time, and I imagine that is probably how it will be for the most part. I like seeing things until they get done since I rarely finish things :shifty:

Although my first project I never totally finished (A simple purse, just need to knit the strap and sew it on), but I just lost interest and was doing that more to learn how to knit anyhow.

Right now I am making Anouk from knitty and having fun, but have lots of ideas for what to make for the next few projects!!!

3 on needles at the present time. Well, actually 4, but that includes my inbetween-projects-project (something I work on when I don't have anything else going.. which never happens.)

My Great American Aran Afghan.
A cashmere/silk Estonian Lace Scarf
A cotton raglan sweater

I have a pair of socks on needles too, but I'm not working on them right now.
I'll soon have a baby sweater on needles.

I also have the pattern and yarn ready for um... 8 other projects. (maybe more)

And no, I see nothing wrong with this. I'm fine. Really.

I have NOTHING on the needles---nothing!

Last night I finished my first dishcloth and now I need lots more yarn so that I can have one going at all times. It has one row in the middle that is totally goofed up, but unless you look closely the sins are hidden. I printed a bunch of patterns today at work, and hope to buy some more yarn tomorrow.

Going on the needles very soon, maybe even tonight are as follows:

the dreaded soft boucle afghan
a hot pink skinny scarf for my son's girlfriend
one of three "man scarfs" for my nephews
