One look at my Ravelry projects page lately and you might think "Has she gone mad? How many WIPs are on her needles right now?"

Yes, I think I have KADHD - Knitting Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder.

Well, either it's KADHD or RFS (Restless Finger Syndrome).'s that my brain is SO excited about the many projects I want to make/finish/start/dream/wear/gift that it can't pick JUST I'm rotating between them.

Case in point, I'm making up two samples for the shop so I spent a couple train rides working on the baby sweater during the week. I finished the back yesterday morning. Then, during the day, while we were in the car running errands, I worked on my Bateau sweater since it was St st in the round - can't screw that up too badly. For a short period of the afternoon, while trying to keep Ramona inside and COOL, I swatched for the fingerless mitts - Kollage yarn is SO soft and great to work with btw. Then, last night when we were watching the NASCAR race, I knit the right front of the baby sweater and started the third ball of the Bateau sweater.

It's safe to say that I'm not bored of any of them - I'm just spreading my time between them - and, somehow, they all seem to be going that possible???

Well, it's another gorgeous day here in NJ so I'll probably sit outside and drink my coffee and knit a bit while Hubbin's works his garden/green-thumb and Ramona does her thing...which is whatever mischief the day brings!

Oh and I love that you have the squirt gun at the ready.

You've named it, I have it.
Maybe you recognize this: after finishing a project, you tend to get really restless. Like your lost, or something. Just because the work is done, I can't let go quite yet..

And several wips keep it interesting, no?
