I'm totally a process knitter, though I knit so much, I rarely have UFOs. I get end results, but that's just because projects aren't long enough Definitely a process knitter - I am passionate about cables as well, but lately it's been all about the lace!
I do try to keep myself fairly disciplined though - I've got to finish my lace scarf before I can begin a new shawl, stuff like that. I don't keep myself to strict rules about that, but I just try to be reasonable so I do eventually have finished projects!
lol I definitely go through periods where I'll finish a ton of things, then I'll go through other periods where I knit constantly and there's nothing even resembling an FO. Mostly I just like to make sure I have a big mix of projects going at once - difficult sock, easy sock for on the go knitting, big project that has to stay home, you know. And I like to make sure that I'm usually working on at least one cable and one lace project at all times (the more complicated, the better), throw in a colorwork once in a while and it's all good
I don't love swatching, though - does that make me an illegitimate process knitter?! Still, I love lace weight the best cuz you have hours and hours and hours of knitting enjoyment from a single hank - worsted works up WAY too quickly!!!
I like the product, but it's all about the process!
