It's not Second Sock Syndrome, it's Startitis

I don't have a problem doing a second sock. I do have a problem with jumping in and starting a new project on a whim. I finished one each of Sake and Rescue Me, Chin Boy, and Show Me the Stars:

I've been reading this Van Gogh biography. It reminded me that I really want to use some of that Opal Van Gogh-inspired yarn that I just had to buy back around Christmas. I ended up starting Potpourri:

While flipping through books to find something to make with the Van Gogh yarn, I also found another pattern that I just had to make immediately. That's why there is also Staccato in progress:

My other "active" works in progress are the quilt (got the thread for it yesterday), the two project bags (got zippers for them at the same time), and the East Meets West Satchel: I got the interfacing so now it is a matter of using the unassembled pieces as a pattern for the lining then I can put it together.

That sounds like too much work at the moment. I think I'll go to Tami's Amis to see what other folks have been doing.

I have Startitis too! I only have 2 WIPs right now which is a pretty big deal and has me itching for another ;)
