Serious startitis

Knitting, plus This is very unusual for me, the Project Monogamy Specialist, but I am having real difficulty sticking to any one of my projects, and want to cast on for loads more RIGHT NOW. I currently have on the go:
  • my March project - Minnie
  • my April project - J's "Lakes" sweater
  • an exercise in freeform crochet
  • spinning - day's end batts
I've decided that May is the month of finishing, so I can wipe the slate clean and then move on, but I still feel like I'm on the project merry-go-round. I really, really want to get Minnie finished so I can wear her; but it seems to be going on forever. It doesn't help that I had to rip out 20 rows on the sleeve cuff (WIIIIDE sleeves too, remember!) today, because I'd accidentally followed the pattern for the front, not the sleeve, after the border. And at the same time, J wants his sweater, I want to know that my exchanges are at least under control (I don't have to have them finished right now; I just need to know that I can finish them), I really want some funky socks to wear with the summer sandals that started eating my feet, and I've been itching to knit one (or three) of Annie Modesitt's gorgeous hats, which I postponed at the end of summer because it wasn't sunny any more (and of course, it is sunny now, and I could really use a hat). I just wish I had three more pairs of arms. At least.
