Working on WIPs

I have been trying to work on my WIPs, when the time allows, but I had to tear one out and start over. It was just too heavy, especially for a baby. I need to make it lighter, so I went for bigger needles (this project has been difficult as it is all white and started during my mom's year long illness and the needles were broken and had to be replaced). It is going faster, since the needles are bigger. It also cannot leave the house, because the color is white, so I can only work on it when I am at home and not liable to get up and down....lots of stitches. I also found another WIP and started working on that a little here and there. So many WIPs, so little time. I am bound and determined to finish all these WIPs before I start anything new. I don't mean I won't work on small projects that can be worked on anywhere, I just want to finish all the big ones before I start another big project. What are some of your WIPs? I have a friend who says she has a couple of WIPs that are in time out, because she is mad at them. Do you have any like that?

I like to make shawls and I have another friend who makes gorgeous shawls using sock or fingering yarn. She likes those as she can buy one skein of something fabulous and make one whole lace shawl. I have one of her shawls and they are wonderful. My girls love it, too. I was recently thinking about wedding ring shawls. That is where the shawl when finished can pass through a wedding ring. I would love to make one of those and put it away for my girls for when they get married. Then I think I would have to make three! Yikes! My girls are worth it! Do you have someone that is worth all the effort of special work? I have a few. I have my husband, girls and my sils and my Maryland nieces.
