So, I make this HUGE list of all the knitting things I need to get busy on, and what do I do?

Cast on something completely new, of course!

I got a skein of this gorgeous hand-dyed hand-spun bulky yarn for Christmas from amergina that she got her on trip to the Isle of Skye (where there's more sheep than people! Heaven!!) and it was callllllllling to me, "Mooooooooonica -- make me into a hat...come on, you know you want to..."

And I, of course, caved. I'm a slave to wool, what can I say.I decided to make this : http://abmatik.blogspot.com/2006/08/super-bulky-cabled-hat.html

Hee. It's bulky yarn and I'm using size 11 needles and I'm about half-way done already, in just a couple of hours. :) So, I'm not really cheating on my other projects...this is just a quickie. :)

I'm trying to be good and not start more projects without finishing the ones I already have lying around. But with all kinds of lovely yarn lying around my house right now, I am spending entirely too much time looking at patterns.

It's all your fault! Well my mom's, too.
Have any suggestions aside from knitty for good places for patterns online?

well...that kind of depends. :)

Lion Brand has some -- but they're sized specifically for Lion Brand yarns. They also never really thrill me all that much.

There's also
http://www.magknits.com -- Magknits. Like knitty, some of their patterns are iiiiiinteresting. :)
http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory.php -- A list of (almost) every free knitting pattern out there.
