Hmmm...not sure if this is the right place to post this....but I wanted to say 'hey'.

I am a newbie here, but I have been knitting for about two years.

Yesterday (Nov 4 2007) I took a double workshop with Lily Chin, so we're back in full TMPP mode....too many partial projects...about 10 UFOs going currently. Lily inspired even more yarn purchases

Greeting from Georgia y'all

Only 10? Surely a mere 10

Only 10? Surely a mere 10 or so projects doesn't put you into TMTP, does it?

After all - there's the mindless knitting, the "special" knitting, the "I can only work on this when *everything* is perfect-incredibly intricate-puzzle-knitting"; and the "I gotta knit this because I promised - project; all in the living room, (that's 4); the bedside table insomnia knitting ; the three car projects (1 mindless, one obligatory, one for fun), the coffee hour project, the lunch hour project. okay - that's ten. Definately not too many. OOps! forgot the stashed in the desk emergency work knitting project.

MMario - ambiguity is cultivated, it doesn't happen in a vacuum!
