Knitting ADD
That's where I am now. Remember when I broke free of the monogamus knitting routine and celebrated? Well, I need to go back to it. I'm forever starting something new and as soon as I learn the pattern or technique I'm off to something else again. *sigh*

I had a long and hard talk with myself and made myself STOP buying yarn until I finish some projects.

Do any of you have this problem?

Me! Me! I have two sweaters, a scarf, and an entrelac throw on the needles. Plus I'm going to re-start some socks. I do eventually finish, though. Everything gets a turn.

However, every time I look at my yarn, I get the itch to start something else, too.

I figure it's my yarn and my time, so what the heck.

Ummm, I have a closet full of fabric if that counts. I had a very similar talk with myself regarding my fabric stash... so I bought yarn and learned how to knit

Just make yourself finish one thing. Then you can go back to working on 100 at once.

I have had to put myself on serious yarn restriction. I find it very hard to just stick with one thing until it is completed. Also, when I see something on here that I want to make I've been known to stop by the LYS on the way home-my stash is ridiculous to the point of almost overwhelming so no more yarn for me until I've knitted through what I am actually going to use.

Me six! Or however many posts there are ahead of me. We're moving and I've got two projects out to work on while the rest of them are bundled up. But I'm still thinking about `The Next One'.

Oh, me too!

I have two baby blankets, three scarves, two dishcloths, and a purse on the needles. At least I think that's all there is, but I sometimes come across other things.

I constantly want to start new projects, try a new yarn/needle/pattern, etc. But I am forcing myself to finish one of the baby blankets (before the baby is born), and one of the scarves (for a charity event in April), before I start my next project.

I will, I will, I will. (I will also ignore the dishcloth I started last night because 202 stitches was too much to do, but 28 was just right for a little late night knitting).

i have only been knitting a short time so i don't have much of a stash. i think that helps because i do have the habit of looking at the little stash that i have and wanting to knit SOMETHING else. i only buy yarn when i have a specific pattern/project in mind. i am also trying to save money/pay off credit cards so that keeps my stash in check.

I'm going to add a me too to this one. While I was putting stuff away to move I'd come across something and say `Oh yeah, there's that one.'
