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 or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

Between frantically cleaning the house, taking the girls to their dental appointments and meeting with our realtor, I nearly forgot to take my KCCO photo today. By the time the dust settled, the light was quickly fading so I did the best I could to capture a photograph. Little L came along and helped.

I am currently calling the project above my "stress project". What is it about being stressed out that makes me want to knit feverishly and complicate patterns? Am I just trying to get my kicks? Maybe it's from the lack of control over what's going on in my life that manipulating numbers to create something new brings some sanity back? Whatever the reason may be - it really helps to center me and prepare me for the next day of chaos.

Anyways, I am nearly finished with the top down owlet and decided I needed something a bit more challenging. C had been telling me she felt a bit neglected in the knitting department so I searched for something to make her. I found this free baby sweater pattern and decided to completely rework it to make it fit C. I have crazy notes already and need to get them up on rav before I lose them. I am basically making up this pattern as I go. We'll see how it comes out in the end.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

p.s. Check back later this week for a great giveaway!
