Time to organize...

So as you already know I'm ankle deep in projects that need to be completed. So what to do, what to do? Add something else, of course, no I'm not starting another pair of socks, but after casting on my new socks (yes, I know, here's where the picture goes) I have to say I love Lorna's Laces, I can't wait to start another new pair, in another great colorway.... not sure which one yet, I'll keep you posted. Anyway, what I need to do now is get the projects listed somewhere and organized, good thing I have one of these, with this programmed on it. I realize that since I bought the knitting program (laptop, pda bundle) recently, specifically to track my projects and stuff, I don't have a sock less leg to stand on as to why I'm just now considering using it for its intended purpose. I guess its because if I put all my projects in it I might be completely overwhelmed by my inability to actually finish something bigger than "A" sock, notice I didn't say pair of socks, not that I haven't finished pairs of socks, numbers of them in fact. It's just that well... alright here's the scoop.... I recently bought 2 skeins of self patterning sock yarn so I could knit 3 pairs of socks for my three boys, now usually, I'm pretty laid back about whether or not I have a perfect match when using a varigated sock yarn and I wing it. This yarn, well, there's no winging it, so after I finished sock one for my oldest instead of going through the skein to find the right starting point I started sock one for my youngest and depending where his sock finishes I'll either start sock one for my middle child or start sock two for one of the others, so if I finish 3 socks even if they're 3 different sizes does it count as a pair and a half? Didn't think so. Another reason to put everything in my pda, I'll also be able to keep track of whose sock started with which color and who still needs the second sock of a pair. Ok, here goes... right to my pda after I finish just one more row...Oh and K your sweater right at the top of my project list, promise, right after I finish this row.... CJ
