Does anyone else do this? Re: Patterns
Ok, I have 3 projects OTNs now (which is about 1 more than my poor brain can handle, LoL), at least 3 or 4 projects 'on deck' - that I know I want to make, and either have the yarn for already or know what yarn I want to use. I'm also not the world's fastest knitter, and I only get to knit after the kids go to bed at night, so that should last me the better part of the summer.

So what am I doing now? Skimming through KPC, looking for other cute patterns, and bookmarking the ones I might want to make someday Is there a 12-step program for this somewhere? I'm addicted to knitting patterns!!

I think all knitters are guilty of this... I know I am! I'm worse with pretty yarn though. Even tho my stash isn't really that large, I still am constantly drooling over new yarns online (usually it's sock yarn), and end up feeling heartbroken because my budget won't let me to buy anymore! In fact, I was doing this last night while looking at Fleece Artists Sea Wool Sock yarn. *sigh*

and OT: I love your icon! I'm obsessed with sea turtles. :D

Oh my, I have literally 6+ boxes of yarn and 85% of it is intended for certain patterns that have already been picked out....so, yeah, I'm very guilty of picking out projects to knit, then buying the yarn....I have an extensive "to knit" list!

I have more patterns than I could possiably EVER make up. I have had more than one thing going at a time, because sometimes I feel like doing one thing and not the other. Or I get stuck on one thing and work on the other until I sort my brain out. I haven't yet got to the point were my hubby has banned me from buying patterns but I can't be far off!

Yeah, `see pattern, save pattern'. I have over 30 mb of patterns saved, some are pdfs, some are individual text files or several patterns lumped together as to type.
