Question - Project x 1 or x 2 or x gobs?

I am almost finished with my Kaffe Fassett socks (long road trip yesterday) and will show them later this week.

This is how I knit. I start a project and keep going on that same project until I am done. I currently have OTN 2 other objects in various stages of completion. One is a pair of J.Knits socks in the gorgeous Palm Springs colorway and the other, and you have viewed it, is my Chevron scarf in Woolly Boully.

So my question is: How many projects do you have going in your knitting bag / basket? I'm just curious. You can leave me a comment or email me. Do you have 1, 2 or gobs of them? I usually have to finish one project first. Am I weird? (Kids - no comments allowed).

Here is what's going on for me this week. New Hand Jive Knits shawl patterns - going up. New Pagewood sock yarns should be arriving soon. My 11 yr old niece is coming for a visit tomorrow (no she still doesn't take naps - jeez). She wants to go to the Coca-Cola museum for the 3rd time (they have a new location now in ATL) and I honestly don't know what else I will do with her. She will, at some point (no pun intended) have a pair of knittin' needles in her hand (she knows the basics).

Now that summer is coming to a close, get out in those gardens , neighbors gardens, farmers market and snatch up some fresh tomatoes. I put up about 11 quarts of the fresh ones for my soups, chilis and sauces this winter. I have been picking so many off my own vines that I am freezing them. Peel 'em, grind 'em, bag 'em, freeze 'em.

I also put up about a dozen pints of salsa and 3 pints of dilly beans. My mom loves dilly beans. So easy - but they do have to sit awhile before they get real good. Mom loves canning too. She said last night we really need to put up some more pickles. Maybe that is what I will do with Kaitlin. She needs to learn...

At the moment I have too many projects--6 socks, a trinity-stitch shawl, and two sweaters--one stopped half way up the back because it occured to me that maybe this is the wrong yarn for this pattern, and one, Sadie from Berroco, just cast on. There are probably some others, but those are the ones in the front of my mind.

Mmm... all those vegies look delicious!

I'm kind of like you -- I usually only work on one, maybe two, projects at a time (that said I have two UFO, a second sock and a bag I started last summer). I'm not the best multi-tasker!

Yum...send some my way...the salsa would not go unappreciated. Love canning, but our Market doesn't begin until late August. Until then, can I live vicariously through you?
