I get like that sometimes too and then usually I start to feel overwhelmed...I can't wait to see pictures of all your projects

I get like that sometimes too. I just get so excited about pairing up the perfect yarn with the perfect pattern that simply HAVE to see what it's going to look like. I think it's normal - no matter what anyone else says, it's completely normal.

I'm glad to hear someone say it's normal! I do that, too. I figure there is a benefit - if you get bored of one thing, you can do something else for a while (as long as you get back to the other one...) I am down to just one WIP right now (just finished a blanket) but have 3 other things ready to start. I actually like having multiple WIP's. It gets weird, though, when one thing is on jumbo needles, and another is on size 2's.

I say, knit on!!

LOL - I have 3 "active" projects going right now - a scarf for DH, a lace scarf for my mom and a hat for my son...... I do a round on the hat, switch to hubbies scarf and do the 9 pattern rows, then onto mom's and do the 12 pattern rows there (as many times as I can get in at night!). That way I don't get bored and everyone feels I am paying attention to their projects! (Tho hubby complains that I haven't started a hat for him )

You're in good company! So many projects, so little time!
I'm the same way! Glad you will be joining our January KH-KAL for the seamless blanket! Just work on it as you can. The scarf and hat for your relative won't take too much time away from the blanket project. Some of us know that we will be working on our blanket for months, maybe even more. That's ok, too. A stashgan can be an ongoing project for an entire year. As stash or leftover yarn becomes available, just add another log to the blanket!

You're not alone.

I say I have three WIPs that I am working on right now, but it is closer to five or six. I'm also waiting on my first Oddball blanket because, you know, I need more knitting to do.

I haven't had an FO since last winter when I finished my daughter's scarf. I feel like I'm all enthusiasm and no commitment.

Let's see... I have one pair of socks that I started Monday night... a tank I started ages ago and work on occasionally, a pull-over sweater that's on hold while I figure out how to make it a cardigan instead without frogging it, a stole I started ages ago and work on occasionally... and I have 6 projects lined up for various friends that I will probably start working on before I finish everything else I have going. I went through a long spell where I had tons of things going but never seemed to finish anything... then suddenly I went through a spell where I finished something every few days! That spell rejuvenated me and now I'm back in the 'lots of things going but nothing finishing' phase.
