I've got my work cut out for me

So this weekend I was trying to organize my stash and discovered how many projects I actually have lined up in the queue.

A. WIP knee-high socks in Sunshine Yarns in Fiesta color. One sock complete.

B. WIP Endpaper Mitts. One mitt complete. (hmmm, do I see a pattern?)

C. Knit Picks Swish in grey and heather grey. Winter hat for hubby.

D. Cotton Fleece in black for I Do shrug.

E. 2 skeins of Knit Picks Shadow lace in Vineyard (lovely!!) for Sarcelle (sorry link isn't working) and 2 skeins of Jagger Spun Zephyr wool lace for something lacy...don't know yet.

F. WIP Lizard Ridge blanket in Noro Silk Garden various colorways. So far, 2 out of 24 blocks complete.

G. 6 skeins of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in a navy color. I think this might be suitable for the Minimalist Cardigan from the latest IK.

H. Freshly ripped Peace Fleece worsted in Ancient Fern that was formerly a Forecast Cardigan. I'm really thinking this would be good for the Tilted Duster from IK. It's pretty scratchy wool so it definitely has to be for outerwear.

I. 3 skeins of Lion Brand Cotton Ease that was originally a failed Lilah. No plans as of yet for it.

J. Ooo! This is my newest aquisition. It's 12 skeins of Knit Picks Main Line in dusty lavender for Tree Jacket.

K. This was an impluse buy when Webs had Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool on sale last year. I have since learned that impulse buys are not a good thing. I had originally wanted to make the Not-So-Shrunked Cardigan but I'm just not in love with the color. So there it sits.

L. Silky Tweed for the Not-So-Shrunked Cardigan except I didn't buy enough of it and they were the last 4 skeins on clearance at my LYS. I could probably try and track down another skein in the same dye lot if I really wanted to. Oh well.

M. 5 skeins of Knit Picks Merino Style in Hollyberry for the Puffed Sleeve Feminie Cardi from Fitted Knits.

N. Another failed project that needs to be ripped (in Knit Picks Shine Worsted). Remeber this disaster? I'm just not crazy about the color so I think I will dye it black at some point when I need it for a project.

O. Many skeins of Elann Highland wool for the Phildar Swing Jacket. Not sure why this one hasn't gotten off the ground yet. I made a swatch way back when but didn't write down the needle size unfortunately.

Oh my goodness! so sorry to bore you with all that! So in conclusion.....NO MORE BUYING YARN!!! well, until at least half of that has been used up. I really can't wait to get my Ravelry invite. Last time I looked though I was like #3,642 in line!

And if you're still reading, here is my lovely 1st RPM sock:
