I usually have only one project on needles because if I start more than one project at a time, I have an anxiety attack thinking about how much I have to finish! LOL

Usually it's one at a time, but last year I started participated in what another board calls "Stitchalongs" and got in over my head with one (Snowman's Alphabet) in January 2003! So I thought, why not start something new to get a break from Snowman and perhaps my interest in Snowman will revive. Well, to make a long story short --- five of the seven items in my WIPs list in my signature were new projects started to revive my interest in Snowman...

Why didn't I do "little" projects, you ask? WEll, I did, and finished them, but they simply got to the point where they weren't interesting any more either... After all, how many holiday ornaments can one use, especially when you have nearly 40 years of ornaments collected from all over the world to accommodate as well?

SO, right now, I have seven (Snowman, the five started to revive my interest, and another January 2003 UFO I slotted in when I finally got all those holiday ornaments assembled!) in rotation *and* there is usually a knitting project in a drawer for those late nights when I can't focus on the tiny stitches any more but am not sleepy enough to go to bed and my hands still itch for something to DO...

I usually have two or three WIP's with one of them the main one I work on...the others are just for a change once in a while. I crochet with yarn and thread so if the main one is yarn the other may be thread and vice versa.

I usually have a minimum of 3, right now it's 5, and the most I've had is 7.

All are different textures and concentration levels for various relaxation needs. Also some have cycles of, say, four rows for a pattern so I have to have the time to do the four rows so I don't forget where I am because the darn sticky notes don't always stay where they are suposed to.

I get bored easily too.

(I just bought $40 of silk mohair and a pattern for a shawl this weekend, the darn shop was having a sale. The yarn is so fine it's like knitting with fuzzy sewing thread. The shawl is going to be as light as a cobweb when it's done. I've done the bottom point up about 8 inches so far just to see what it will look like. It's awesome! OH, burgundy if you are wondering LOL. That's my latest splurge....maybe someday I should actually start the $90 shawl? *sheepish grin*)

I usually have two or three on the go at once, for the reason that I tend to get bored sometimes, so taking a break on one project to start another often gets me re-interested in my original one, especially if its taking a long time to come together.

LOL Remind me next year when I finish it k?

I'll have to send it to you because I don't have the "package" anymore since I'm not CLing and I don't want to pay for it.

But I will take pictures of it!
