I don't know how I allowed it to happen, but I have about 5 WIPs right now and it's driving me nuts.  Currently I'm trying to finish a sweater for my boyfriend, two sweaters for myself, a lace scarf, and a pair of socks. I just want to finish something already!  So I know there have got to be other people in the same boat as me, and I think it would be nice if we could all motivate each other to "git-r-done", so to speak.  Jump on it if you're interested!  Grin

Glad to see I'm not alone!   Wink  Tonight I'm continuing to work on the sweater I've been knitting for my boyfriend (I intended to give it to him last Christmas but am now trying to finish it before October 2nd because I'm going to see him that weekend).  I had to unravel practically the whole thing because I had made it a little too small the last time, and since Sunday I finished the whole back and tonight I'm going to start on a sleeve.  I just dropped one of my really hard classes yesterday because I found out I can graduate without it, so that will leave a LOT more time to knit (Yay!)  Keep me posted on your progress!

ooo i SOOoOoO need this. works in progress (not counting those completely abandoned): socks for BF, sweater for BF (both of these have far-off deadlines, a late November birthday and winter solstice), 2x sweaters for me, a lace scarf whose pattern I'm still writing, a pair of hand-painted lace socks (not 2nd sock syndrome, I lost the "pattern" I was writing, and haven't felt motivated since I found it), patch blanket of my handspun, armsocks for my mom and...and...I'm sure there's more. But these are things I've worked on in RECENT memory. And plan to finish, eventually. But really, I like having a drawer full of WIPs. He he. The socks, though...and the armwarmers...and the sweater for him, and at least one for me...I'd like to finish those. So that brings it down from 8 to...4 projects? Hrm. I could do that.

Last night when I got home I hunkered down and got about half a sleeve finished for my BF's sweater.  Tonight I hope to finish it while watching Project Runway.  If only I could knit during class, then I'd really make some progress.   Smiley
