Works in Progress?

In order to have Works in Progress, doesn't that mean I have to work on them? As of right now I have 5 current works on the needles....or at least on the cable......(Thank God for Interchangeables!) Now I realize that 5 WIPs are not a lot for many knitters. When I stayed home this wasn't a lot for me either...But now that I am working 5 days a week....I am finding that 5 current WIPs is just plain overwhelming! My Lotus Blossom Tank I started over a year ago! I absolutely love the pattern and would love to have the finished top but apparently not enough because here it is! I have only 2 repeats of the lace pattern done. I had such a hard time getting through the lace repeat even once when I first started this project. I think I frogged the top in the first few rows over a dozen times before it clicked. Now it has sat so long I am worried I will have the same trouble when I pick it up again.
Also another Interweave Knits pattern is my Mandarin Blouse. In my defense I justs started this one about the time I got my job (June/July). I was hoping to finish it quickly but here it is. I am just about up to the arm holes for the tank. This is a supper easy pattern and I truly have no excuse.
I started the Friendship Scarf as a Christmas gift. I just started this one a few weeks ago. I am still not sure who I will give it too but it is a pretty pattern and I am sure it is going to make a great Christmas gift for someone.....if I finish it that is. FO???? Well if I only had one foot! This pattern is from More Sensational Knitted Socks. It is the Grapevine Pattern which is such an easy and pretty little lace pattern. I finished the first sock in a weekend and then have finished the cuff and one pattern repeat and there it has sat.....

With all this you would think that I would get motivated to finish something. But no...This week I cast on for a Clapotis Cap to match my Clapotis I made last year. I had almost a full skein of Malabrigo left over and I hope it will be enough to finish the cap. Hopefully this one will become an FO this weekend. I have finished the band around the cap. I need to sew it up and then pick up stitches for the top. Then to see if I will actually wear it. Every winter I search for a hat I will actually wear and have yet to find one. Maybe this will be the year?
