Hi my name is Susan and I'm a Knit-a-long-aholic. It all started innocuously enough with a unofficial market bag KAL. I thought, no pressure, good idea. But I was hooked. I joined The Summer of Socks, knit as many or few as you want over the summer, maybe win a prize. Sounds reasonable. I knit socks all the time.

Then I saw the Seascape Shawl. Loved it, and there was a KAL with it. No harm in joining, maybe there will be some tips. And I can use it for the Lost Group KAL, too. Two birds with one stone. I can knit socks and a shawl , no problem.

Next was the Ravelympics, pick something to challenge you and knit it in 17 days. I've wanted to do the Swallowtail Shawl for a long time, I have the yarn in my stash. This could work out. A challenge yes, but I can do it. No problem.

Now look where I am. Three, yes three, projects all at the same time. I never have more than one going. I think I might have gotten in too deep.

Does anyone know of a 12 step program for this?

But they're all gorgeous! And they don't all have deadlines, do they? By the way, I love the Shakespeare quote you've got in your banner, I hadn't spotted that before!

trust me, there is no 12 step program... Like you saw, I'm doing 3 lace projects for the Ravelympics.... That doesn't mean I'm only working on 3 projects right now though! You've stumbled onto some Buddhist secret, I'd say, if you can manage to knit only one project to completion at a time!

I don't see a problem.

I always have more than one project going on at a time. It keeps things lively.

Good Luck!

you are a masochist!

but all of your projects look like they are turning out well...

i also juggle a few wips at a time... when i get bored or frustrated with one... i bag it up (they all have bags) and move on to another one.
