Normally at this stage in the game having just finished a big project (Butterfly), I would be in that limbo state. You know that state of mind where you don't know which project to start next.

Oh, wait. I forgot. I am one of those rare knitters. The kind that only has one maybe two projects going on at a time. I don't know what it is.

With every other aspect of my life I am a multi-tasker. I multi-task with just about everything I do. Talking on the phone/cleaning/cooking/reading/knitting/on the computer/watching TV, I am usually doing two to three of them at any given time.

For some reason, this does not hold for my knitting. Having more than my big home project and my little travel project is more than my mind can handle. Though I have had three projects going at one time and that was only because my home project at the time was one that needed much of my attention. So in addition to the travel and home project I also had a "mindless" home project, you know that project that that was so mindless that you could practically knit it in your sleep.

I have soooo digressed. Where was I? Oh yes, usually after finishing a big project I am at that stage where I don't quite know which one of my projects to start next. The usual conversation being held in my mind is going back and forth between another big or simple project.

Luckily for me, I have already started my next project. This is where I am at now.

This is my first real Fair Isle project and I really like how the pattern shows through on the reverse side.

I think for a while, all of my projects are going to be for others. This is the first of the major projects for Christmas.

I'm the same way. I only have 2 projects going at once. One is a huge project that will take a month or more. The other is a little weekley piece! You're not alone. I would have 100 things going if I didn't limit myself,
