always enough

You can never have too many projects on the go. Provided you finish them.
That's my motto.
It's always okay to start another project.
With the proviso that you are finishing projects.
Can't have simple startitis without some ends.
Unless you have an infinite number of (or cash for) needles and spindles. (Hooks are easy to use on multiple projects and are thus the exception.)
I've got a "few" projects on the go.
[As an aside, I don't typically count my scrapbooks as projects although I'm sure others would.  Mine aren't fancy enough to really qualify as proper scrapbooks by any scrapbooking stores' standards. They're primarily photo albums with stickers. Granted, in the age of digital photos, I think that any attempts at organizing and displaying printed photos is not insignificant. I do so love looking back through the books I've made for my daughters. However, I shan't focus on such craftings here.]

Here's where I'll share progress on my projects. Or, such is my intention.  You know how blogging can be when it's not a top priority in one's life. My priorities are
  1. Family - including a preschooler (b. 2008) and new twins (b. 2012). 
  2. Knitting - for my sanity
  3. Keeping in touch with family and friends
  4. Designing - because I may as well share my patterns and earn a little paypal money that I can use to support small yarn and fibre vendors on etsy and fellow designers on Ravelry
  5. Blogging - not that I officially rank it, but for the sake of this post I thought I should include it somewhere
  6. Finishing up old research projects... we shan't talk about that. Let's just say I'm still recovering from a lifetime in academia, that I haven't given up my research interests, and that I intend to eventually find another outlet for my research and work experience - when the twins are a little older.
 I'm not sure about the exact order of things after number 1, but you get the idea.

I think I may try to import some of my old posts from the other family blog here. If I can.

But let's just consider this as a starting place.
