From too little to too much?

So I made you all gasp not too long ago when I announced I had no active knitting projects. That all ended today. I just got the supplies for the felted boot knit along and I am figuring out how to cast on for two socks at once on two circular needles. (You may be getting questions about that later tonight.) My sister has requested a Fair Isle type hat and I have agreed to make a scarf for a February birthday.

That is three projects. I never try three projects at once. I may cast another project on when I am near the finish line of one, but this - starting all of them at virtually the same time - is uncharted territory for me. I think I have a knitting problem. I need a support group.

We're your support group- however, the kind of support you'll get from us will land you in bigger trouble.

For a while there, I was thinking we'd lost you to the other side.

Welcome back to the real world, my brother!

You say "support," we say "enable." Tomato, tomahto.

(Only three? Really?)

I try very hard to only have 3 projects on the needles at once; that keeps me from getting bored with any one of them. Then I see some new wool or a new stitch pattern and the wheels start turning and, well, you know the rest. Good luck with all of your new projects! And happy new year too!

Three is good! I'd like to get back down to that number soon.

Three is a good number. Twelve or fifteen is a bit much.
