Yarn Along 2 - Too many projects!

Okay, it looks like the last time I posted it was for the yarn along.  I'm really not posting very much these days. I have drafts saved, but somehow I never find the time to finish them and by the time I get back to them, the moment has passed. I do think my lack of posting might have something to do with the twins who will be three months old tomorrow!

Anyway, I was digging around in my knitting bag and discovered way too many Ziploc baggies filled with not-quite-finished projects.  I'm learning that I knit the way I read books.  I can't read just one book at a time (no matter how much I try) and I can't knit one thing at a time either.  I just get so excited about my next project and the yarn I'll use that I just get out another gallon-size Ziploc baggie and cast on!

So, here's a pic of most of the contents of my knitting bag:

So, I'm making a hat out of 60 Quick Knits and perusing both Turkish Delight and Treasure Hunts and Knitting in the DetailsI started a new novel on the Kindle and that's why it's not shown and I'm listening to another novel on my MP3 player.  I'm still reading Ann Voskamp's A Thousand Gifts as well. 

Typically, at night, when the house is quiet and all the kids are in bed, I'll sit in my own bed, listen to a novel on my MP3 player and knit.  It's the best of both worlds.  I hope to have that bright pink Hermione Hat (pictured in the lower right hand corner) done by Friday.  See? I've made progress since my last yarn along on the Hermione Hat! 

Thanks again Ginny for hosting the weekly Yarn Along.  It will be exciting to chronicle a year's worth of reading and knitting on Wednesdays!

I have the very same bag I use to carry my knitting things!! Sorry, to go a little off subject, but that just made me smile. :)

I'm no where near your level of knitting, though. I'm still in the practice, practice, practice stage. I still have yet to learn a purl stitch.

I love all your projects, and like you the evening knitting is my favorite time, I usually watch a movie with my dh or sometimes listen to books as well :)

Love your picture of all your WIPs! Usually, I have to stick to one project, myself, or I get confused. I've been wanting to read the Turkish Delights book for forever!

I've been knitting more in the morning lately and crashing by the time the sun sinks, it's been so chilly down here those cozy blankets feel too, too good!
