It can be scary when you start to add them up. I have a crochet tablecloth in hibernation, 2 shawls, 2 pr socks, a sweater and a t shirt waiting to be finished. The sweater is 3/4 of a sleeve away from being done, the t shirt is 1 and 1/4 cap sleeve away from being done and the socks are just underway and may yet be frogged as I'm not happy with my stitch design and yarn match up.
I want to cast on for bathroom curtains as soon as I figure out my stitch design.

I have 2 active WIPs right now. A log cabin stash buster baby blanket and an afghan for myself. I should have a couple of oddball baby blankets soon so that will be 4 actives.
I also 3 or 4 hibernating WIPs. They are bears that need to be seamed. I really didn't like the yarn I used for them. I should probably frog them but I have all the pieces done. I'll probably finish them up when the above WIP become FOs!
hookedonknitting reminded me of another hibernating project a baby hat I keep in the car for appointments and line waiting

3 right now: 1 laceweight shawl (luna moth); 1 Little Arrowhead shawl w/Caron Spa; 1 turtle dishcloth.

the laceweight shawl is my first venture into serious what I call 'real' lace and is scaring the be-jesus out of me. I'm not too far into it and want to give it more time before I admit defeat and give up.

I started the Spa shawl yesterday when I spent the day at the hospital while my Mom had hip surgery.

The dishcloth is my 'waiting in the car' project.

I only admit to two WIPs: a baby hat and a log cabin blanket. (I will have three when the scrubbie netting arrives in the next day or so. )

EEK! I have 5 that I can think of:

1) Socks that I have been working on since Thanksgiving

2) Sweater for me

3) Sweater for DH

4) Shrug for DD

5) Getting ready to start a prayer shawl

Terrible because in so many other aspects of my life I love to finish things before I start others!

OMG! When I saw the title of this post, my immediate, out-loud, answer was "WAY TOO MANY!"

I have :
a pair of socks, nearly done

a sweater, summer yarn, about half-done, that I realized I didn't like the waistband on and want to rip it back and redo it from that point

another sweater, winter-weight yarn, that I stopped working on until fall, so that I could wear it immediately when completed

A crochet project, a tandom mamaw/granddaughter project, that I believe I am actually working on alone...no biggie

A quilt I started 3 years ago and never finished, and likely will never finish

And, that's all I can think of at the moment. If anything else comes to mind, I'll edit back in and let you know.

We're just talking about WIPs right? the "hmm, I'm tired of this project, lets switch" projects? Not the "I have cast on and must finish at some point" projects? right? right?
I currently have 7 of the first one (I have a case of KADD. It's terminal.) and way way way too many "in the wings" projects, and even more "hibernating" UFO's.
I would say I win... but I don't think its a good thing!
