You Know You Have A Problem Finishing Projects When....
you go to cast on a new one and open your Denise kit to find all the cords are currently being used on other unfinished projects

then you open your Boye kit and find the same thing

this is pathetic

I'm sorry I know that I should be sympathetic and all but that is funny.

I never have that problem *cough*

And people chuckle when they see my collection of circular needles! I never run out; but then again I've got about 80.

Denise cords all gone, every circ in the house used {about 20 or so for me}, and all my H and I crochet hooks are missing {I have at least a dozen of each}... problem? what problem?

I'm still too green to run into this problem (having SO many needles in use). For the first time though I'm working on 2 projects that require the same size circular needles. I think it's a good excuse to go out and buy some Addi Turbo circs!!! I've been reading the thread about the interchangeable sets, and I was almost ready to go buy a set, but I love the Addis way too much. Decisions, decisions.
