Questionable Intentions

So right after I wrote the last post I was struck down with the latest plague. Whatever coughing/sinus/sore throat/evil virus that has been making the rounds came home to roost and punish me for my optimism.

I didn't even work full days after that, but went home sick every day.

I'm still a little rough, but I can function again.

So.

Creativity.

I've been fighting some really odd feelings lately. I'm kind of struggling to figure out what is happening to me, but I feel a need...almost compelling... to finish my incomplete knits.

Shocking, I know.

I've always been an at-leat-three-projects kind of girl: a sock for my purse, a big project to keep plugging away at, and a complicated something-or-other, like lace, to stretch myself with. We won't discuss how many projects I have on the needles right now, but Ravelry puts it at about 8.

But I also finished a pair of socks this weekend that never even got put into Ravelry to start with.

So last spring I swatched with handspun for a sweater I want to make for myself. It languished all summer, and I dug it out over the weekend. I decided to swatch again, with smaller needles, and like the fabric better, and then put it away and pulled out an unfinished sweater and knit on it all evening!!!!!

Tell me: how many projects do you have on the go at once? What's the most you've ever had going? Or are you a project-monogamy kind of person?

Thanks for you comment over on my blog. I need to start commenting more on the blogs of buddies.

I don't start as many projects as I used to but I have close to a dozen unfinished projects lying around down in the basement. Over the last year or so, I've been better at starting something, working away at it and eventually finishing it. It's a change from my usual frantic bouts of startitis.
