Can you really have too many WIPs?

If you're not a knitter and found your way here mistakenly, please, wipe clean your mind: WIP stands for work in progress, and we knitters--me, anyway--have more projects on the needles at any given time than is necessary. And I keep starting more. They're all, pretty much, in different yarns and so depending on what I'm in the mood for, I'll pick up that WIP. Here are a few. (You can find the patterns and read more about them on The first pattern is the only one you must pay for, but it's well worth it.

This is the Liesl sweater, my third. It's the perfect cardi for Southern California. Lacy, airy, yet warm. This one I'm knitting with Malabrigo Silky Merino, colorway: Matisse.

Here's my third Birch Shawl, the second from the bottom up, using Rowan Kidsilk Haze.

Knit socks are my favorite type of socks to wear, and Malabrigo sock yarn is so soft you hardly know you're wearing socks. This pattern is Elfine.

And I thought I'd knit another Clapotis using Wollmeise 100% superwash merino, colorway: Rittersporn medium.

I have a few more that I need to get photos of.  Sad, but true.

Tell me about your WIPs. Are you sane and only knit one at a time, and when you're through with that, knit another? Or are you a little insatiable, like me, when it comes to starting projects?
