Oh dear, I'm afraid this is me. I have tried to have no more than two knitting projects going on at one time, one easy and one that takes more concentration.
Then I went to my knitting group and spotted this luscious yarn. Hand dyed, Madeline Tosh
And before I knew it I was casting on to knit a cowl.
In full disclosure, the other projects are 1) a pair of socks, one leg done and 2) a lace pattern shawl/scarf nearly finished. I came to a halt when I discovered a mistake in the lace about 4 rows back. Knitters know how much fun it is to un-knit lace. Sometimes you just have to stuff it back in your project bag and hope somehow the next time you look at it you will have the will to fix it.
Maybe I will take out at least one row of that lace each day before knitting on my new lovely yarn. Maybe not.
