Knitting coming out of my ears!

I have a serious knitting problem. I have been working on socks for quite awhile now and then I have, of course, decided to take on some wonderful new projects.
What do I have going on needles right now:
Logan's hat ( about 15 rows)
My socks

Preemie sweater started for charity group ( 8 rows started)
Sheep (actually not on needles just needs to be stuffed and seamed)
1 slipper done
5 rows of the first sock for my sister Kim.
And... I just signed up to start a knit a long.
ARGGHHHHH. I have got to get this crap outta here.
So, here is my pledge.
I, Rebecca, will not start any other projects, except Crystal's scarf because she needs it by the 29th of March, until I get at least 5 projects done. I owe that not only to myself but to all the people out there who are going to be getting these little gifts.

What I'm working on today

I am lucky to have Monday's off. I go to cosmetology school and my class days are Tues-Sat. So today is my Snday. I started on my own version of my rolled cuff socks. I think that I like them. They aren't turning out too bad. I tried to teach myself how to work 2 socks on 2 circs. but a no go. I am still working one sock on 2 circs. I started on my nephews hat yesterday, too. That didn't turn out so well. I think that I am going to Frog it and just knit a plain hat and then add the flames on later. The thing is that he won't care. He just wants a hat. Amy tried her socks on yesterday... didn't fit. I made them too short. This seems to be my trouble lately. I will try to make her another pair sometime in the future. More to write later.

The First Blog

So here is my first blog. I will try to get pics up as soon as possible but... don't know how fast that will be! I started knitting when I was in high school but then "forgot" about it. Picked it up again a few years ago..... and I am off. My current works in progress are a pair of socks for me! *YEAH* A purse for someone.... too small for me but sure is cute. I was at Joann's ETC. and saw a cute little purse pamphlet. It is being made from lionbrand fun fur and Microspun.... Socks are being made out of Regia CRAZY COLORS. Don't have a pattern for the socks... I am trying to free hand my own. I got the yarn at my LYS for 30% off. Check out the Fiber Factory in MESA, AZ. I love all the staff there. Well, hope I will have pics up soon for you all to see. Happy knitting.
