Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.


My cats always find my knitting and make it their little home. Am I the only one this happens to?

I had a deja vu moment as I was knitting K's rainbow. It reminded me all too well of my Lina mishap. I need to learn to pay more attention to my mistakes so I don't do re-live them. I tried K's gift on her after I finished the sleeve portion to see how it fit. It seemed perfect so I finished it up minus the picot trim at the end. I tried it on her again just to be sure and it was too snug. Not horribly too snug but snug enough that she wouldn't be able to wear layers underneath it, and layers are a must here. I ripped it back up to the sleeves and added two extra stitches under each arm as well as went up a needle size. Hopefully this does the trick. Must remember to have little ones try on their gifts multiple times, but it's tricky to do so. I try to keep the gifts a surprise, so to bewilder them a bit I always have both of them try on whatever it is I am making. This way they don't really know who it is for. So far this little trick works...

P.s - I hope to finally share K's project with all of you later in the week. Stay tuned! Also don't forget to enter for your chance to win a beautiful set of silk butterfly wings from Ziezo designs here.
