Let me see... after I finish the three projects I have going at the moment ... some Patonyle socks - finished the first one,
mohair shawl - only up to row 63, have to concentrate on it and nothing else when working on it
and a blanket for DS out of magic garden lollipop - an ongoing project which is mindless and I can buy yarn as I run out as the dyelots don't matter
What to do next? DS wants a few knitted toys and I'm thinking of making myself a Jo Sharp jumper out of Silk Aran Tweed ( I think it's called) with a scarf in Jo Sharp's mohair - it was in last winter's Vogue I think
I'm tossing up about doing Rogue too or a Debbie Bliss wrap cardigan
But it is hard to decide
Jacqeline, good luck with Elfin, I've heard those ruffles can be a bit tricky. Have you read skinny rabbit's blog on it? Here's the link
And Tam, how did your wrap turn out? Must catch up again after the holidays

I can't possibly truthfully answer this question because that would mean I would have to confront the amount of yarn I have and my overly ambitious plans for projects considering the amount of time I have available to knit.... All those gifts for kids I never got around to knitting and are now too big, that impulse purchase at my LYS or on e-bay.... I don't think I can do that yet. I have been spring cleaning and purging things from my closets (clothes, books, miscellaneous stuff) but I don't think I can face my yarn stash yet.

Let's see. On the needles are a bag (to be felted) for my SIL, a baby blanket, and a scarf.

Projects I have yarn for but haven't started yet:
--sweater for my daughter for summer
--afghan for my mom (no particular "due" date)
--felted bag for myself
--cell phone case and/or changepurse to go with the SIL's bag
--some cat toys
--sweater for my daughter for fall/winter

Projects I need yarn for:
--DNA scarf for a friend (need by November)
--Christmas stocking (my first comissioned project!)
--scarf for my pen pal
--Thinking about those knit sweatpants in the spring IK

I usually come up with a project, then buy the yarn when it's on sale. Although sometimes it's the yarn on sale that generates the idea for the project! As for when they will get done, it is usually dependent on the project itself. Like baby things have definite due dates! The DNA scarf has a November due date because that's when my friend's wedding is. So, the projects with due dates get worked on first, while the non-due-date ones get worked on in-between.

Let's see...

I'm going to finish the scarf I'm working on in the next few days and am going to immediately start on a baby sweater. (I've been denying it to myself until I finish what I'm on. It's gotten tedious).

I also have yarn and plans for:
-a second baby sweater for another friend
-a third baby sweater for my new niece or nephew due in May
-four asst. "quick" scarves (one chenille T&Q, a couple eyelash, one straight garter homespun)
-hat & scarf set for my Honey
-lacy scarf for mom
-summer sweater for me
-hooded warm sweater for me

Not to mention the afghan and sweater for my Honey that I'm just itching to get the yarn for.

Xavier, where'd ya get the pattern for the DNA scarf? Any pics? I have a couple of med school students who'd love a twisty "DNA" scarf. =)

I'm hopelessly addicted. I'm strung out on yarn.

Rosie, the pattern for the DNA scarf was in one of the issues of Interweave Knits last year.

Hang on a sec.........waiting waiting waiting......

Sorry I just had to race down the stairs and back to double check.

Now, where was I? There was an article on the DNA scarf in the Fall 2003 edition of Interweave Knits. But I also did an online search and the pattern is available from this website:

There is a pdf file to download.

Hope this helps

Well, I have three items on needles right now including the ever time-consuming baby blanket, a simple poncho, and a scarf that I'm not sure I'll contine making as I really want to get to the sweater that I just bought a huge amount of yarn for.

Give me another year, and I'll probably have about 20 projects going at once. :P

I've revealed this before, but I will do so again to make others feel better. I have 60+ projects waiting. Definately SABLE, and I am in the uncomfortable position of having to hide yarn purchases from my husband, because he just looks at me, and makes me realize how stupid buying more yarn is. But, I have reached another $50 gift certif. at Elann, and I have about 19 book credits ($2.50 orr on $25) so I have to use those, right?

That. Is. So. Cool.

Oh my goodness!

Add that to the list of things to buy yarn for!

Thanks for the link!

At last count (which was sometime last year) I had enough yarn for 35 projects. That number has definitely increased, which is why I'm now on a yarn fast.

Felicia in NYC

"This is mohair." "Mohair", he said and placed the furry ball on his head. "Mohair for me?" - from a very funny moment with my boyfriend in a LYS.

Yarn Fast started on 2/22/04 (no yarn purchases until Stitches East)
