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.

Little L outgrew his pumpkin hat from last year so I am trying to quickly knit up a bigger one for him in time for our school's annual Harvest Festival this weekend. It's a fast knit so I should be ok. I have a little story to share about said work in progress. After school on Friday the little ones and I had a play date with our friends. We decided to walk over to their house (right across the street from school). I stopped at our car to get some diapers and other necessities like my knitting (Isn't that a necessity to you?!) and shoved them in my camera bag (the one above) without paying much attention to how they were in there, and started walking. The girls were up ahead and my friend and I were chatting away when I heard my name being called from behind us. I turned around and saw some friends by the playground with their kids and then noticed that there was a long orange string following me. Apparently my ball of yarn dropped out of my bag quite a ways back and I was leaving a trail of yarn behind me. I suppose that could have been a good thing if I didn't know where I was going. I could have just followed my yarn trail back home like Hansel and Gretel's breadcrumb trail. But alas, that was not the case. I had to run back to find my ball of yarn and wind it up, thankfully, with some help from my friends. I think it is thanks to them, as well, that I was not red-faced and embarrassed!

I am also trying to use up a leftover skein of yummy MadTosh (from Little L's bear hat) to knit Little L another vest. I am just hoping it's enough yarn. It looks like it so far.
Keeping the core of a child warm is so very important to me so I don't  think they could ever have too many vests! Thank goodness they are fun to knit up.
