I seem to consistently have three projects on the needles. Gives me enough variety. At the moment, I have an lacy tank top, knitty's Unbiased bag, and a ribby cardi on the go. Most of my stash hasn't yet decided what it wants to be, so I have no idea how many projects will come out of it....

On the needles: second sock of a pair; multidimensional "triangles" scarf; bamboo tunic top; acrylic baby blanket (too hot to work on it now!).
Projects waiting to be started w/yarn purchased: I'm not sure I can count that high: I was a communication major, not a math major. <grin>

I only have three active projects - a poncho, a afghan and a cardigan. Oh and a pair of socks. I made myself a promise not to cast on anything new until I finished the first three - except socks of course, because they don't really count right?

I am actively working on:

1. A test pattern for Fran (I'm so thrilled to be trusted with this, despite my guage issues )
2. A bottle cozy based on Fran's idea
3. A felted evening bag I'm designing

In the planning stage:

Sweater for baby set I'm designing - skirt, hat and socks are done!

Been sittin' for a while:

1. The not quite right wrap sweater I designed for SnL
2. The matching skirt
3. A scarf for my US yarn smuggler

Buried, but not forgotten:

Broad Street gloves from over 2 yrs. ago.

I have a tendency to buy yarn just 'cuz, so I won't even go there.

Healthy conservatism promotes the continuity of civilization, the importance of community, the dangers of thoughtless change. It does not, or should not, assert the right of white, Christian heterosexual males of a certain age to limit the rights of everyone else. The past 100 years of social history has been dedicated, on good days, to constraining the dominance of this minority. Yesterday was a good day: J.Ibbotson, June 29/05, on the passing of the same-sex marriage bill.

Well . . . if we're talking how many the yarn has been purchased for, PIGS (Projects In Grocery Sacks), I think I'd have to quantify that in terms of storage bins. :)

Active projects -- I just had to go through that, because I am NOT buying any more yarn until I finish at the very least my WIPs and hopefully until I reduce my stash by 50%. No more yarn -- I swear, not buying anymore, I'm really not. Except for maybe those online sales I just got notice of. But here goes.

On the needles:

The guy's thong from Knitty.com -- I had forgotten about this til I found it the other day -- the boyfriend it was for is long gone, and it's not something you give to someone else ("hey I know we're only in the dating stage, but we seem to be getting along, so here's a thong I made for you") -- so that's gotta be frogged! So that doesn't count, right?

A shawl/poncho out of the Best of Knitters Shawls & Ponchos, which I am quite proud of because it's my way of using up all my superwash stash -- self fringing, row at a time cut and fringe, changing colors every row. Perfect stash buster -- Unfortunately, I probably have til next winter before I can possibly finish it.

A second Cables After Whiskey sweater -- been working on that for over a year, but that's okay, because it's part of a monthly knit-along - so that doesn't count, right?

Two "stash-using" scarfs -- take-along projects for sitting and waiting at the car shop, meetings, interviews, we all need at least one of those, right?

A Lion Brand cape pattern out of Lion Brand homespun that I am really finding difficult to work with because I keep splitting it, but it's for a relative (who can't believe that in this day and age, people are still using wool that has to be (oh horror) HANDWASHED!) and liked the Homespun.

A lacy vest/swimsuit cover out of Ornaghi Filati Lux

St Seraphina's Simply Elegant shawl out of a metallic & rayon ribbon yarn

Two pair of socks, one out of Fortissima Colori, one out Merino & Fur

Knitting finished/ need to put together:

Fair Isle cardigan from a fall 2004 Vogue magazine that turned out too big by the time I finally finished it -- need to remove the sleeves and adjust the shoulders slightly

I know I had other activities before I started knitting, but I look at this, and I swear I can't remember what those were.

I just got into knitting and don't have too much. On the circular needle is Debbie Bliss's sweater "Lara", in her cashmerino aran yarn - color blue.

Also in the process is a beautiful poncho called "Steppin'Out" from the March 2005 Creative Knitting Magazine. Much trouble with this one, for every four or five rows I knit, I have to pull one out.

However, my embarrassment comes from all the unfinished needlepoint project I have.

For the first time in several years only ONE. Socks in Kool-Aid yarn. I am on deadline (the 15th, and I will make it, hooray) for a book. Then the fun starts again.

Never more than one big project and one little project. I just finished a lap throw (in my own basketweave pattern) for my local cancer centre; it's blissfully simple. I also am down to turning the heel on the second orange sock I'm making for my Gary; those will be fini this week. And I have a pair of country girl socks started for me. I'm waiting for yarn to arrive (like I need more yarn) to start another shawl for the cancer centre, but by then, I'll have the orange socks done.

For the most part, I'm monogomous. I work one large project at a time, but I do cheat with a pair of socks as a more portable project to take with me when I need to wait somewhere (doctor's office ususally).

A more interesting question would be "How many projects are WAITING to be worked on?"!! Hundreds....that's why I gotta focus on getting one thing done at a time!

Let's see....
Active: 2 shawls (I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for one of them), 1 sock just past the heel turn, and a lace handbag that may go into the inactive pile.
Inactive: another shawl, a recycled silk handbag that just needs to be assembled and lined
Planned: the other sock, a navy cardigan for DD, a vest for DS
Stash: More than I would like to admit since there is not room for any additional purchases.
I usually have 3 on the needles for variety.

do you have to count projects that you haven`t even started washing and spinning up the raw fleece for yet?

If so, I`m doomed. Can I just say I`ve got two wardrobes full of yarn, with and without project plans attached, and six boxes of fleece and roving in the attic?

Oh, and I`m currently knitting a shawl.

Val.

Right now I have WIPs:

--First pair of socks started

--Sweater from the top down - body finished, just needs sleeves

--crochet smock - back and half of front finished

--2 scarfs - requested in Fun Fur (Boa Yarn)

--crochet cardigan that I need to frog sleeves because the yarn stretched way too much - covers the hands. (Must decrease earlier than pattern says to.)

--several stained glass ornaments and ceramic items waiting to be painted to be included with gifts

Planned: 2 more sweaters

Karen, I never heard PIGS before, you are so clever, its very memorable! I have lots of PIGS, too. They just aren't figured out yet. There are red worsted weight pigs, green worsted weight pigs and some mixtures of old pigs together! I like this!...

Now I feel left out. I don't have anyPIGS.

I never keep my yarn in bags, it's all out on display. I have plastic stacking kitchen bins, and a couple of stacks that go up to the ceiling. Some, of course, only go bed height.
