Startitis.... meet Finishitis (a battle for the ages)


So I have come to the conclusion that I need to stop casting on new projects...... it is getting bad. I am unsure if I am procrastinating or just getting bored easily. If I keep this up all my needles will be used and I will have no where to put every thing!! Startitis is sure hard to shake.

Le Sigh......

So I found a few other like minded people on Ravlery, and one has decided to spread her finishitis...... awesome.
Check it out at Yarn on the Side.... her blog should be linked to the title of this post.
I have no idea if I can do this, as you know I have a few weddings this summer, and I have a personal goal of knitting shawls for most if not all of them. This is not good for a begining case of finishitis..... as it means that before I complete the items I have I may have to cast on another shawl. I am still going to try. I posted a comment on her blog, but I think that I missed my purple alpalca socks... here is a pic of a few of the latest new projects....




And a better shot of the new FLower Bud Shawl.



This was the swatch I made to test the pattern


and a couple more just for good measure.... I do have a few more this summer right?!


I think that all the swatch tests were great! I am so glad that I did them, now I can plan shapes and sizes better. This is going to be great!

I am undecided with what to do about the Watery Root, not because I don't want to complete it, but because of the time frame of the shawls. It would be the quickest to the finish line, but I have no idea if the will put me really behind on the shawl or just a little bit...... dang. Thoughts? Suggestions? Hope if you would like to catch finishitis, you can get it from us.
Oh, but here is the finished blue socks.... a bit short, but hey, thats what happens when you test a new yarn.Hope you are having a great weekend and I can't wait to see your fantastic projects. I know that some people don't have issues with too many WIP's.... lucky.....

Yay...a fellow challenger in the Finishitis contest! Hrmph...I'm not sure I'm going to make it either! Good luck with your WIPs; your list doesn't look as big as mine!

As the instigator of the finishitis contest, ANY progress we make is good! We can do this! Or at least some of this! Hey, frankly, finishing ANY of these projects is good.

Keep on knitting!!!!!!

Love those blue socks! I also really like the way your Rusted Root is coming along, I have this pattern in my own queue. :0)

Sweet socks & shawl. I think I might use a flowerly looking lace pattern like that for the bottom part of my new tanktop. I guess we'll see. I've been changing my mind on nearly everything lately.

At least some people ARE knitting. I think I have "slugitis" or "not-doing-anything-knitting-reated-itis." lol.

Great idea. Looking forward to seeing everything finished. Now to organize the stash and find projects to get rid of all of it.
