Here is a better view of the scarf, and my spinning WIP:
The gorgeous Merino-Silk blend is from these lovely people. It's called Golden Hibiscus. I am going to take a better picture of it outside, in the sunlight, but this will do for now. It makes me think of cantaloupes. My late mother loved cantaloupes. For some reason, my thoughts keep circling around to her this summer, and just about everything reminds me of her.
Am I happy with five WIPs? Sure -- the top-down socks are ready to go into the heel flap, I might finish the lace weight wrap this year, and the baby blanket has a definite time limit (I have 7 months to go). The scarf won't be needed for a few months yet, and the purpley toe-up socks are for me, so no rush. I have lots to work on, already on the needles, in progress.
So WHY is this all I can think of?

I believe they are meant for each other. When no one is around, the yarn tells me that it wants to be fingerless gloves, or perhaps a cowl. That's normal, right? Everyone's yarn talks to them ... right?
