    There are several projects I have never ended up doing,
    for various reasons, but I still find myself researching them.
    - Will Wright

    All over blogland I've seen people updating their WIP lists, getting back into gear for the new school year, and giving us the state of the knitting. Somehow, I just can't seem to get that all together this week and find all of my projects simultaneously to photograph. But something is better than nothing, so I'll give you a brief, partial project roundup.

    Started months ago, the Long Paisley Shawl:
    Started months ago, and recently just worked on again, the Backyard Leaves Scarf:Did I ever even mention this? Inspired by Kristen's, I just had to start a Prosperous Plum Tank. A pair of mini-socks. I wear these with my clogs to work when I'm wearing scrubs. Here's some leftover Lorna's Laces and Artyarns Ultramerino.
    And Lizard Ridge in process. But I saw an amazing one the other day, and now I'm rethinking the entire project.

    So that's part of the gang. Which part, you ask? I have no idea. But one of these days I'll get around to taking stock myself. It's important to at least glance about before starting that Christmas knitting . . .

    I'm thinking of doing a roundup myself. 'Course there's all those projects I started this weekend.....

    I'd be too embarrassed to do a round up of my projects. I can't wait to see your Prosperous Plum Tank!

    I'm not good at keeping up with a large number of projects, so I usually only have about three going at once. Less interesting for blogging, but so much better for my sanity.

    I missed a lot while out of town! Happy Birthday, belatedly! I was just thinking about how my recent startitis has fueled an embarrasing number of WIPs, yeah, and Christmas is just around the corner...

    Very nice WIPs! It's interesting to me how even people now far removed from the world of fall school starts still think in those terms.

    I don't know - I make the lists and log in the WIPs, but still cast on more than I can possibly finish. Do you think we knitters have a sickness - or a monogamy problem??

    Anyhow, CONGRATS, you won my Location Shoot contest!!! :) Send me your snail mail address and I'll get a prize together for you.

    Wow- look at your WIPs! I've been knitting on Carmelita like a woman possessed. Quite momogamous these days. I'd like to cast on other projects, jut I can't until I'm done with the shawl. It's been on the needles for far too long.

    I did Prosperous Plum. It's a wonderful pattern--highly addictive (once you get past that picot hem--which is beautiful but a huge pain, at least for me).

    My roundup would be embarrasingly small. Still, it might be worthwhile to reassess some things. Your projects look great, by-the-way!
