For you can define something only when it can be narrowed down to a set of concepts. In this case, 'unity' or 'one'. If you are able to call something 'one', then its not infinite - because you were able to narrow it down to a concept, however large that concept is, and then identify it with an adjective. Therefore it means that it is not infinite since the many-ness does not apply to it.

So infinity is also many, and infinitely many to boot. infinite creations follows from that level downwards.

True all descriptions are limited. The way I think of infinity as one is like the set of natural numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... It's one set! And the set is infinite. Again, these are just descriptions but I find it useful to grasp the idea of infinity.

The many-ness is in the set while the set itself is one. One illustration is to think of the set as a container containing all numbers. No matter what number, or how many numbers, are drawn from the container, the numbers themselves will always have a finite number of digits.
