Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}

KCCO - mermouse

KCCO - Lina for me!

*Sorry this posted earlier as I was still editing it!*

During the week of the girls' swimming lessons I wanted an 'on the go' knit that I could work on while watching them swim. Then I remembered that beautiful robin's egg blue yarn I shared with all of you awhile back. I went over all of your beautiful hat suggestions again and ended up choosing one of Julie's suggestions - Lina.
For some reason or other I have a tendency to knit for myself in my 'knitting off-season' (summer). Last summer I knit up my Shalom as well as my butterfly hat. I am hoping to knit myself some other winter necessities this summer as well, but just the bare minimum. Maybe my hat and some mittens. Leg warmers would be really nice, too but we'll see if I get to them.

I can't seem to fit myself into my knitting plans during any of the other busy seasons, but I don't mind that. I honestly would rather be knitting for others - my children, family, friends and those in need. Our handwork teacher (at school) once reminded me that I will have all of my life to knit for myself but only a brief window of opportunity to knit for my children (as well as others). I agree with her and take that to heart.

The fabric arrived last week for my and K's upcoming sewing project. I look forward to diving in with her.

What are you working on? Happy creating!
