Is there a doctor in the house?

Because I have a major case of startitis. I have about five projects going, all of which I started in the past two weeks.

There's the rainbow yarn I'm spinning. I'm about half finished with that. Then there's the secert sock that I'm working on (or should say, started but haven't worked on in a while)

There's this sock that I started on the way to RhinebeckI'm actually planning on ripping it out because I am just not happy with the way it's turning out. I think it has to do with the yarn (Knitpicks Gloss) and the pattern (Sensational knitted Socks) not working together. To say the least I haven't worked on this sock since I got back from Rhinebeck.

Then there's this lace project I startedThe needle I'm using just isn't doing it for me so I'm waiting on some Knitpicks Options for it. To say the least, lace is not easily made with dull pointed needles.

Then there's these socks I started for my Grandmom for Christmas:It's some of the yarn I bought at Rhinebeck and the pattern is from Hello Yarn called Cable Twist Socks. I saw that Grumperina used this pattern and it just turned out so awesome that I thought it would work well with the yarn I got. Of course, I had to rip it once because it was a little too tight, but now it's perfect.

So what do you think, Doc? Am I gonna live?

There are project monogomists, then there are those of us with startitis. As a long-time sufferer of startitis I am happy to report that you can live a fulfilling life with this condition. Just try to avoid the dreadful "should be"s and "need to"s. (I should be working on X, I need to finish up Y.) Work on what you want when you want. It's all for fun anyway, right?

Whatever, I need more projects to keep myself interested. I get too bored working on just one all the time!

I always say a lace a day keeps the startitis at bay! =)

As a cronic sufferer of startitis, I can honestly say that everything will be just fine! You won't be bored and you'll have your choice of projects. Starting a project is my favorite part! It's new and exciting.... *swoon*
