How many projects do you have OTN?
When I first started knitting, I would neatly finish a project before casting on anything new. Now it seems one project can't hold my attention too long. So let's see how guilty we all are...

Also include any items that have been cast off, but haven't been finished (darned, sewed...etc)

It isn't so much that I get distracted...it is more that I have a small project for taking with me...one large one for the couch....

Right now I also I have a sample going on...and one project that I had started to try and make a dead line...that failed...so I went back to my big project, and will get back to it when I am done.....

So...generally I have two...at any given time....

I get bored REALLY fast... and I need to pick up another ball of yarn to finish my MILs scarf (hopefully they have the same dye lot ... or she's getting a 3ft scarf instead of a 5ft like I had planned...).

The scarf I have on for myself is just SOOO boring - I LOVE the look of the pattern and it's pretty masculine so I will finish it... eventually... hopefully ;o)

I just got my first set of DPNs so clearly I had to whip out some random yarn I got on clearance at my LYS and see how hard it would be to knit a hat with them. So far so good!

Not to mention I have this awesome soft pima cotton that's lace weight and I really want to get the drop stitch scarf going, but I keeping goofing up for stupid reasons :o/

My neighbor (who started knitting with me <3 her) thinks I have knitting ADD ;o)

I can think of 6 at the moment, but there are more, I'm sure of it.

I have 4 right now. One is a scarf that's almost finished; one is a wrap that is about 2/3 done; an afghan and a pair of socks.

I am strict with myself that I'm not allowed to do something new until I finish the last one, therefore it's an extra kick up the backside to get things done - apart from the abandoned cardigan that I sewed up wrong and can't face fixing...

I usually have 3 projects going
1 easy one for "therapy", 1 challenge project so I can learn something new and 1 project that is usually a gift. If any one project is too large to become easily portable, then I'll have a 4th "small" project!

Right now just a couple of long-term projects, but I just finished off several. I tend to start a lot and then just rotate through them and never finishing until I get sick of having so many things going. Then I finish off 2 or 3 things all within a few days of each other and I'm ready to start again.

Hm, until now I'm the only one who voted 7+??

I see, I have way too many projects going on at once, but I get bored so easily, so I have to start something new...

2 CPH
just started Faery Ring have the bottom cable done
Booga bag
Sylvi Coat
Mystery stole 4
Da Vinci Shawl
Spiderman blanket
Modern log cabin blanket
pair of socks for my son
mystery shawl no9
Alligator scarf
this is just off the top of my head, i know I have other projects started hiding out of sight in boxes.

listing this all down I am beginning to scare myself.
