So, I might have a problem.
Things have been going super well, knitting-wise. The big project that I wanted to fix and finish quickly, the Onward Shawl, is very close to done.
All I need is one solid movie night to finish this long-overdue behemoth. I've been very dutiful in working almost exclusively on this, as the recipient is coming up to Duluth in a week or so and I wanted to be able to present it to her, finished, blocked, and pretty.
Then I went on Ravelry last night.
I don't have dance this week for February break, so my nights are pretty open. That means last night I accidentally went online and started looking at all of the pretty things that I could make.
This was a deep, dark rabbit hole.
I mean, how can I resist the the gorgeous matching combo project of the Green Memories hat and handwarmers for myself? Or starting a sweater such as the Agnes Pullover, which has been on my radar forever? Or start the Carrie Handwarmers to keep at my chilly desk, or the Scrollwork hats (which I already have the yarn for) for all my awesome lady climber friends? Or go into a whole new realm of crazy by beginning the Persian Dreams Blanket (mark my words, that's my next big project for myself)?
Like I said: deep dark hole.
The problem, for those that have been keeping track, is the size of my WIP list.
As of right now, I have 7 works in progress.
This morning, I had six. Then I accidentally cast on the Police Box Handwarmers.
To be fair, those are going to one of my solo students, and I wanted to make sure I got one of the mildly fiddly presents started as soon as possible. Totally legit. Easy to justify (another) WIP.
Doesn't matter that I have the Onward Shawl, the Hipster Beanie for Jamie (xmas coupon being redeemed), the Adama cowl KAL, the Valentine's Day socks (that I started a few days ago), and the Studio socks to finish up.
Oh, and I brought my little honey quilt kit to school, so when I have down time I can yet again begin chipping away at the the little honeycombs.
I might have a problem.
I think actually having nights off this week has given me unrealistic expectations of my knitting time.
