Is there such a thing as too many WIPs?

I love crocheting, and I'd do it all day and night if I could
I love selling my creations, it makes me feel fab that someone would want something I made (and now with a sale every couple of weeks its becoming what I call fairly successful!)
And now I have to balance the fact I love to make things to sell, against my new addiction of yarn bombing.  
I used to have three to four wip's (works in progress) I now have so many I can hardly keep up.  I have a one in my work laptop bag, one in my handbag, one in my car, two in the lounge, one by the bed, as well as the usual ones that live with the stash.

I think it might be getting out of control...

Something I finished... (yes something else has already taken it's place)
What do you think? Is there such a thing as too many works in progress?

Squared Away in May

I did the Square-a-day -in- May 'a-long' from a Ravelry group, and I've shown some of the results here.  I got off with a hiss and a roar, and you know.. I always do this... off too quick and then it stops.  I ended up finishing 20 of the 30 squares and I put them all together and gave them to a lovely couple of ladies who are making blankets for Christchurch before I just stopped totally!

I've also got a new addiction in Yarn Bombing, Yarn Graffiti, aka Guerilla Knitting and some other fancy names.  It's International Yarn Bombing day next Saturday (11th June) and there is loads going on around the world, keep a look out for something in your area.  

I've set up a separate blog to  keep up with my bombing , so if you fancy please go and visit Her Hook to see some amazing sights such as this:
