Some knitters cast on a project and stay faithful right through the end. I, on the other hand, am a very unfaithful knitter who likes to jump around between projects, possibly leaving a project untouched for weeks or months only to come back and be unsure where I left off. I've tried to focus more on the already started projects and make some progress on them.
I can't only work on one project at a time because sometimes I want something challenging that requires almost full attention, like Lacy December Scarf:
But sometimes I need something mindless because I'm hanging out with friends chatting and I know I'll lose count of which row I'm on, such as Smittens:
And sometimes I need something that I can start and finish in a day or two because everything else is becoming too much of a chore, like my newest finished object, Cotton Candy Hat (which I'm including in my works in progress because it went so quick it hardly had a chance to be a WIP):
I almost always have a pair of socks on the needles, like Texture Socks, though I messed them up royally and need to restart them:
And when, amongst all the other projects I have on the needles I have the time, I'll cast on with a group from Ravelry to create something that is a mystery right up to the end. Here is a photo of the first August Mystery project so far:
