Works in progress-or my not-so-secret shame

So, let's just make this very public. These are my works in progress. Everyone has come out of hiding. Proof of my short attention span coupled with a very busy life. I never meant to abandon some of just happened. I heard the call of another pattern or another yarn and there I was-off to a new dream of a finished object. NOW is the time to buckle down and FINISH, I do so solemnly swear. I will not cast on for Zauberflote until I have at least one finished sweater-not socks, not shawl-SWEATER. And without further they are, some progress on some:
Poor lonely Luskentyre
Little Rivers sleeve I
Elizabeth I

I recently became friends with a lovely knitter in the Netherlands. I did her a small....I repeat..small... favor and this is what she sent me in return. It is absolutely more gorgeous in person and I can't wait for it to get cool enough to wear. Thank you, Marcella from the bottom of my heart. It is one of the most beautiful gifts I have ever received not only because it IS beautiful, but because of the time you must have put into it.

Marcella's gift

And here is the Zauberflote that I won't be putting on the needles for a while. :0) It sure is beautiful, though, isn't it? Purple is one of my favorite colors and I cannot WAIT for this one. These colors are LUSH.

I was going to buy that one for my SIL! Of course, I would have to knit it for her but I wasn't sure I could give it to her once it was finished even though purple is not my color!

OK, not counting Elizabeth & Season, how many sleeves do you still have to do?

What a gorgeous gift!

WOW, what a great gift is right! It's beautiful!

I LOVE Rheingold, and everything is looking lovely. I don't feel so bad about having more than a few on the go! Zauberflote colours...beautiful. Should I be concerned about myself because I can name so many of the shades just by looking at them...?!

Rheingold looks gorgeous and who cares how many things are on the needles? Cast on with wild abandon is my motto (okay, it's my practice but I can't seem to stop myself).

My, my, my. All your WIP's are unutterbly beautiful.

Hey Sharon, is that an itsy-bitsy circular needle you're using on Rheingold's sleeve? Or are you still at a point where a 40cm fits?
