I'm the same way! But, I'm forcing myself to at least knit ONE ROW on those red ankle socks every day. And I'm trying to finish a cushy baby blanket that's almost complete as well.

I have a TON of stuff in my head on the needles.
It sounds like you have enough UFOs already, just like me.

Good plan with the timer!

I realise the month is half gone but I have some things that need finishing while I have the time to do them, motivation is slightly lacking though so perhaps joining this KAL will help.

My most recent WIP is the Summer swing jacket that you can find the pattern for on ravelry. I am a bit further than this pic, about half way thru the right side, almost done!

And here are 2 more WIP's, a felted bag, needs to be felted yet and have the handles attached,

And my monkey socks. This pic is of the first sock, which is done now, just need to do the second one.

These are my 3 most pressing wip's, the first because I lurrrvee it, the second because it is a gift for my mom's bday on sept 5th, and the 3rd because sss has had me for about 4 months now.

That's only the first 3!

I joined the arm of the right side of the summer swing jacket on the wrong side!
I have fought with kitty ripping out stitch holder, wrong inches knit, snags... I am just going to start over. LATER. when I am not so mad.
the thing that makes me the maddest is that the yarn, Cleckheatons tencel wool, is such a lovely drapey yarn, so perfect for this jacket. I hope it frogs ok.
If only I could tell the inside from the outside next time.

Woo Hoo! One Down, 100 to Go!!
Yippee!!!
I can't believe I actually finished a knitting project!

I started this cushy blue baby blanket in September of 2007. I had almost finished it earlier this year, but ran of out yarn. I frogged it back past the midpoint, and added a different bulky yarn for the center section.

Last night, I finally completed it!

Welcome to everyone that just joined!

Shandeh (you know after you said WHY you picked that I hear him saying your name every time I type) That blanket is darling! Nice job and I really like the strip in the middle I think it makes it look really great!

I cast off the skirt!!!!! I still have to sew up the elastic casing and tread the elastic. I think I'll take it with me tomorrow and do that in the car... YEAH almost done!
