how many WIPs do you have?
Right now I have three and I feel that is way too many. I have a bib, which will get finished today, socks(one is done) and a sweater for my 11th old which is about 70% done(i started it on April 13th). I feel bad for not finishing them and wanting to start something new. Does anyone else feel this way?

four that I'm aware of (some others are buried pretty deeply).

1) mindless garter stitch dishcloth
2) easy lacy shawl
3) lacy scarf
4) alpaca turtleneck sweater

Since knitting is my second hobby, the WIPs don't bother me that much. I'll get around to finishing them eventually.

I have 4 UFOs - a scarf that is close to being finished but I haven't worked on it for months. A sweater that I'm knitting from the top down - need to do about 3 inches of the bottom and one sleeve. I just started working on it again a week or two ago.

A rug for the bathroom - I've been working on that every day now for about a week, but it doesn't seem like I'm making much progress because it's going to be pretty big.

And an afghan for my husband, which I started months ago and hate knitting because it's dark blue, which makes it hard to see the stitches unless I'm in very bright light.

I'm determined to finished these 4 objects before I buy more yarn for something else. (Not that I don't have a ton of yarn stashed already!!!)

Right now I have 4. Two are knit (cami top and felted purse), two are crochet (beach blanket and afghan). The crochet afghan is destined for the frog pond so I can try a different pattern. The urge is always there to start something new! Gotta have discipline. I don't have any, LOL. I can't stop myself from buying yarn for the next and the next and the next project even though I might not get to them for a year and in that time, change my mind about the yarn or the project!

I have a scarf & a 2nd fingerless glove in progress, they're Christmas gifts, so no rush. I'm also working on a stole I think will be a birthday gift for SIL (end of Aug), and I just cast on for a Mr Dangley monkey with plans to make one for each of the boys.

One that I'm actually working on (sweater).
One I should finish but I picked it up before starting the sweater and couldn't figure out how I was doing it as fast as I was when I last did it (Tunisian/crochet-on-the-double combo).

One that is sleeping until winter again (huge 8'x8' crochet). One that is sleeping because the colors give me a migraine. One I've had the yarn for over a year, it would be a hot weather item because it's sort of granny squares.

I have, amazingly, only one that I'm actively working on at the moment. However, I have a sweater, a sock and a stole in hibernation at the moment. I usually have at least 3 different active projects going at any one time because I get bored with one, move to another, then back to the one.... some are better for traveling than others, some are better for working on in a particular location than others, some are good TV knitting and some are not...

Umm... 3 adult sweaters, 2 scarves, 1 kid sweater, 1 sock, 1 bear sweater, and maybe more I've forgotten. I've also got a couple ongoing log cabin blankets for charity, but they are intended to go slowly with added stash yarn so I don't count them.

I can't help myself... Some people have way more though!

I see some people are classifying their WIPs as hibernating... yea, that's my story, too. And I'm sticking to it.
