Not Such a Good Start

I've finally gotten enough sleep and I don't have to take a morning nap with Katherine. So to celebrate I'm posting and then I think I'll knit.

So, what have I been working on? Up until two weeks ago I was working very steadily on my "angry pregnant woman scrap blanket." Yes, it's ugly as sin but for some reason it's a lot of fun. And, since it's just stockinette, I can stop anywhere and pick it back up without any problems. And there's the fact that it's gotten so big I can't tuck it away and forget about it. I have about 16 rows left. I could conceivably finish that in about a week.

So, why aren't I still working on it? Two weeks ago James and I took a weekend trip and I wanted something to knit in the car. The blanket was too big and obviously all of my existing projects were no good. So I took my basket of scrap yarn and Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers. And now two weeks later we have this: Another hair brained idea. I was inspired by the Indian Summer Collar in MagKnits. I thought it looked like fun and Katherine can use it for dress up when she gets older.

I know I had promised myself that I would finish two projects before starting another. Well, clearly I haven't done very well. (But my scrap yarn fits in it's basket now!) So, what do you think the consequences should be?
