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.

L's prop addition

{Little L's version. He always feels that props are needed.}

I really should be working on Little L's birthday sweater, but the yarn hasn't arrived yet. At least that's my excuse for starting on a sweater for myself. It's a good excuse, right? I actually cast on in a moment of sheer desperation after trying to find something to wear to go out of the house. Most of my clothes are worn and threadbare and the idea of a little something new helped me feel a bit better. Besides, the February Lady Sweater has been sitting in my queue for far too long and I even had the yarn custom dyed by Jackie months ago. Okay, more excuses. I guess I am feeling guilty (especially since the last project I knit was for me, too!)

The yarn choice was quite simple. Ever since I knit C's Koala Bear sweater, I knew I needed some of that beautiful pewter colorway for something of my own. Now let's just hope I don't butcher the pattern! Any advice, warnings, and/or thoughts from veteran FLS knitters out there?

What are you working on?! Happy creating!
