The Answer (so far) is Two

...Projects completed.  The scarf was easy (Peasy Scarf).  It took me a while, though.  I only worked a few rows at a time. Knit using one skein of Colinette Prism. Seventeen stitches on a #15 needle came out to 65 inches long.  I'm happy with the way it looks.  
The blanket is knit with one strand of durable Red Heart and one strand of JoAnn Stores Boucle Sensations. This is the fourth time I've used the Boucle yarn for a blanket, and each time I say never again.  But, I like the way the final product ends up to be soft and squishy.  My only regret is that I didn't use up all the yarn.  It will  be donated to the Veteran's Hospital.

Casting On

Instead of finishing the projects that I have already started, like a good knitter should, I have cast on multiple new ones.  In the background is the blanket that I have been working on. It's almost finished, but I have this habit of starting something new just before I finish the old.  This time I got carried away.  A vest, two shawls, a scarf, a cowl, a crown and a market bag.  How many do you think I will  actually finish?
