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.



I planned on starting the crayon pouches by this installment of KCCO but nights spent relaxing by the fire with Kevin slowed down my progress quite a bit. I think I can handle falling behind by such a distraction, though. I did at least wash my fabric - that counts for something...doesn't it?!

I also picked up a knitting project to work on while I prioritize my Christmas making list. I just can't ever have idle hands so I even need something to do while I am thinking about what to do. Sounds complicated, but then again I guess I can be quite complicated myself.

The yarn you see above was chosen by K. We had a little yarn store outing, just the two of us, a couple of weeks back. She spent nearly an hour deciding on which yarn she wanted me to knit her special sweater from. We enjoyed ourselves looking through and touching each skein we saw. I did have to redirect her a couple of times when she chose some bright neon colorways. (I am hoping for this sweater to be one she can wear most every day.) She finally chose a 'cherry' colorway. I think it will look great on her. I had hopes to finish this sweater by Christmas Eve but with my other projects taking priority - it probably won't happen. I won't count it out completely just yet, though.

What are you working on?
