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.

Thank you for your thoughtful words in response to yesterday's post. They were just what I needed. The journey ahead is still a long one, but one way or another, I know we'll make it.

But enough about that; let's move on to what's keeping me sane, shall we? I ripped out Little L's Livingston in favor of waiting for a yarn closer to what I was picturing in my mind. Don't get me wrong, I don't have any qualms with pink on boys (in fact Little L will be sporting C's bright pink snowsuit this winter). It's just that I feel like this pattern needs to be more of a seagull gray. I can't see it knit any other way.

That beautiful yarn hasn't gone to waste though. I have decided to claim it for myself and knit this beautiful scarf/shawl designed by my talented friend (and author of my children's favorite books Phoebe's Sweater, Phoebe's Birthday and Freddie's Blanket ) Joanna Johnson. The lace pattern was easy to memorize and things are moving along quite well. Who knows, maybe I'll have a scarf to wear this winter in Idaho!

What are you working on? Happy creating!
