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.

KCCO - Livingston decidedly pink :(

Continuing with my obsessive knitting, I decided to start on a project that had been in my queue for much too long - the Livingston sweater. It's such an adorable little sweater and I know it will look brilliant on Little L. I scoured the Ravelry MadTosh sport stash database for the perfect colorway at a reasonable price. I thought I found it. The colorway is called calligraphy. The price was pretty good and it looked like a nice gray with tan undertones. For whatever reason I felt it necessary to ask the seller if there was any pink in it. She told me no so I went ahead and bought it.

When it arrived I was just so excited to start a new project that I barely looked at the yarn and just cast on. I spent a late night blissfully knitting. In the light of my desk lamp the yarn looked like a very pale gray, but the light of day showed me something different. This colorway is decidedly pink. On the bright side I know just the project I can use this yarn on while I wait for some new yarn to replace this. I just can't handle the thought of idle hands right now!

What are you working on? Happy creating!
