Warning: Startitis is Contagious

When I first read KathyMarie’s post on startitis, I figured I was immune. I tend to be a two-project knitter—one project for toting and stealing a few stitches while waiting at bus stops and one project for sitting and knitting away while I watch TV.

So when I finished Quinn and the Print o’ the Wave stole in one fell swoop, I figured I’d just pick out a couple more projects, cast on, and keep knitting away. As it turns out, a bout of finishitis renders one very susceptible to startitis, because, well…look:
