I should know better....

and there is no excuse for it other than I might have a slight problem...
A knitting problem that is. I find myself quite addicted. Can you believe I woke at 4.30am dreaming of what to do with my newly dyed sock yarn? I was dreaming of knitting, dreaming of a design.

I was going to play with this sock design and actually make it. Instead I found something else...
Ailbe from Knitty 2009

even though I know I have enough projects on the needles, my thoughts were this..."Well I am almost done with one of my sweaters, so it won't hurt to start another project because then I'll still have the same amount of projects going."

Am I delusional or what?

Well I started Ailbe anyways because I did cast on for socks, but didn't feel like making them, so I peeked through my Ravelry queue and seen these mittens and thought...yeah I can do this instead.

I'm going to try and make a goal for myself.
The goal is this:

1: I can have no more than 5 projects at once. (I am at 5 right now.)
2: When a project is almost done, I can cast on for a new (6th) project, but the project being almost finished must be pretty close to being done, as in within a day or two.
3: (probably a stupid part of my goal) Pick a project that is in my Ravelry queue only. (I did put them there for a reason, time to get to it and make them!) There might be a problem with this because if I don't have enough yarn currently in my stash, then I will have to buy more. This will interfere with #4
4: Try not to buy anymore yarn, use as much as I can in my yarn stash (I know this is a joke, but I had to write it because I have to try)

Maybe I'm being foolish.
Have you ever tried to set stupid knitting goals for yourself as I have done above?
