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.
Ah, the Monsoon shawl. I had been admiring it from afar for months now waiting for a free moment to cast it on for myself. Well, with three children that I love to knit for, free moments are few and far between so after I finished Little L's dragon attire I decided to just go for it. I'm happy that I did. I really don't knit for myself very often.
And on a completely unrelated note -
My K received a book from her Nana on Friday and has not been able to put it down. She has suddenly become a little bookworm! I love it. She is even underling things she wants to remember as she reads. But last night a little before midnight as I was getting ready to go to bed she came out of her room hugging her book. I thought something was wrong but she was all smiles and said she had been reading the whole time. It had been quiet and dark in the girls' room so I thought she was sleeping! I think I need to invest in a good book light for her so she isn't straining her eyes. Any suggestions? I used to have one that I bought from Borders many years ago but it fell apart. I need one that can withstand a nine year old as well as possible attacks by a three year old dragon.
What are you working on?! Happy creating!
