Who has the longest WIP list?
Been thinking about my WIPs. There are the active WIP's, not a very long list. Then if I add inactive WIP's, crochet WIP's, other yarn related crafty WIPs. Now it is pretty long.
Who has the longest active knitting list of WIPs?
I know it's not me. But I am very guilty of starting new projects all the time, I wonder who has the craziest list of projects on the go? I would be very interested to know. And is there anyone out there who only does one thing at a time???
Here is my WIP list:
Active knitting/crochet WIPs;
Stripey jumper in powder puff for DD1
Bamboo top for me (see my thread under whatcha knitting if you want to see these two)
Crochet jacket from garnstudio's latest collection for me
Turquoise beaded cushion cover, so close to finished.(see thread in Whatcha knitting)
Inactive knitting/crochet WIPs;
Crochet felt rug with fibonacci concentric circles
Knitted mohair top for me
Crochet cotton vest for DD2
Crochet oddball afghan (I think this has been going for about 10 years)
Other textile WIPs;
Plaited rag rug
Some rag dolls I think? or maybe I haven't started this can't remember.

I am sure there are more, hidden away in boxes that I've forgotten about. Actually my list isn't as scary as I thought it would be. But I haven't included all my sewing WIPs. And what about my plans for a pot vegie garden? OK that is way off topic.
Perhaps an even scarier list would be the -to do- list !!

That is soo cool, maybe I will get started on a couple more before I finish 'Damned Stripey Jumper With Lots Of Ends To Tie In'

Wow, looks like I am one of the disciplined ones. Who would have thought it?

Most of the time, I've got only 1 or 2 projects going on. At the moment, I'm working on my fair-isle sweater (started yesterday) and pomatomus socks. I think I'll also start another sweater soon, with an easier pattern, so I can also watch tv and knit.

Ali and Silver, how on earth do you keep up with so many projects?

I have five on my needles right now, and that seems just perfect for me. When I get bored with one, I move on to the next one. I usually work a little on each one every day, but sometimes I forget about one or another. I couldn't imagine trying to keep up with 10+!! Crazy!

On the Needles: Too many UFO's!
On the Nightstand: The Mists of Avalon and a variety of midwifery texts.

Well, I was going to say only 1 at a time (I finish one project before casting on for another), but since Silver came out with her new tutorial, I cast on for that before finishing my other sock.

So this is the first time I've had more than 1 WIP.
