I have too many WIP's

I know, I always do. I counted them last night, and I have 9 projects going right now. granted, there is one that I'm planning on frogging because I don't like how it's turning out, but that's still a lot of projects. I've been itching to knit the Pinup Queen sweater from Stitch & Bitch, but DH and I made a deal that I need to finish off some of my projects before I will allow myself to buy the yarn for Pinup Queen. I'm also setting a limit for myself. I am going to finish off a bunch of my projects, and after that, I will only allow myself to have up to 5 WIP's going at once.

The projects I have going right now, are:
Peacock feathers Shawl - I am making it my primary project again starting this week, so hopefully I will have it finished before long.
Purple Drop Stitch(ish) scarf - I've got about 2 1/2 feet on this one right now. I really haven't been working on it much since it's been so unseasonably warm here lately.
Best friends Socks - Sarah's socks are almost finished. I need to do about 3 more inches on the foot and then I'll be able to start the toe decreases.
DH's Socks - I hate working on these. I have about 3 1/2 inches of the leg done on sock one. Black fingering weight yarn and size one needles. (ugh)
My Socks - I LOVE working on these, but the size 2 needles wear on my hands quickly. I have about 3 inches of the leg done on sock one.
Mittens for me - I started these last night using some Patons classic merino wool that I had in my stash. I have about 2 inches of the cuff of mitten one done.
Sweater for DD - I started this a few days ago to give myself a break form small needles. I am using some pink and some purple Caron Simply soft that was in my stash and size 7 needles. Not really using a pattern, but it's a raglan sweater.
Fuzzy Feet - I am almost done with foot one, using some Knitpicks Wool of the andes that was in my stash. This is the project that will be frogged. I'm just not happy with it and at the moment, I have no intention of trying again anytime soon. I have however, been toying with the idea of doing the knitting math to figure out how to make these small enough for my nieces (8 yrs, 1 1/2 yrs, 9 mos)
Irish Hiking Scarf - I published this post before adding this to the list. what can I say, it's early and I haven't been sleeping well. I haven't touched this scarf in quite a while. I love how it's turning out though. I'm using dark blue for the ribbing and doing the cables in gray. I only have a few inches done of it, but like I said, it hasn't been touched in quite a while.
