Crafter's Attention Deficit Disorder. 

I am working on:

TARDIS blanket
Scale shawl
Scale hat
Beanies
Beanie with flower (beanie done but not flower)
Infinity scarf
and just got a commission for a slouch beanie.

I get started and get them mostly done, get interested in something else, and go off on a tangent, lol.

Oops.

Please tell me I'm not alone!

Nope, not alone. I have a lady bug blanket, a pink camo ripple blanket, and a tiered flower blanket to finish. Then I have to make two twin size blankets for my 2 boys(1 each).

I have 2 very large cross stitch projects (one almost done), a shawl, a lap blanket, a baby blanket, and a knitted bag I'm working on, alternating between them all. I have some boot cuffs and socks in my queue as soon as I finish something.

So no, you're not alone!

I meet with a local Ravelry group each week, and they all laugh at me for alternating between 3-4 knitted projects while I'm there. I usually just knit a row of each before switching.

Ha ha. Everything I'm making uses a different stitch. My hands start to hurt after a while so I switch to another project that moves my hands differently. And I get bored doing the same thing over and over too often.

Extremely here! I started a quilt for our bed, then decided to make one for ds due in June. Now I'm plotting to make him a matching crib bumper, and want to hem up a bunch of dd2s pants into shorts. Plus I still need to work on dd1s quilt, and I was drooling over fabric at the store a few days ago dreaming up all the stuff I could make.

And don't even get me started on the stuff that doesn't involve sewing...

I promised DH I would finish our quilt before anything else but it's so hard to stay focused.
