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, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

Where did my sunshine go? As you can see it was a gray storm cloud type of day.

I currently have a semi-last minute birthday gift for C on my needles. She has been asking me to knit her some fingerless gloves since I finished my Downton Abbey ones. I thought her birthday was the perfect time to grant her wish. I knew the perfect yarn to knit them with, too - the skein we dyed with Indian Amaranth last fall that C quickly claimed for herself. As you can see the pink mellowed out quite a bit from my previous photos but I actually like it even more this way.

p.s. I decided to make things simpler and just shorten the name of the link up to Crafting On. Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on} just felt too long and slightly complicated.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

warm enough for popsicles play play play
Today started out like all the others - wake, morning chores then homeschooling. That is where normal ends. Kevin had the day off from work and he and I spent all our time looking at houses our realtor sent us on the computer. We ended up finding a fixer upper in our price range. Before we knew it we had plans to leave tomorrow on a whirlwind trip to Oregon to look at it and place an offer before it sold. Then late this evening our realtor called us back and said it needed too much work and our loan wouldn't be approved. I am slightly relieved that we don't have to leave all of the sudden now but also disappointed. Back to the drawing board. Something better will come our way.

can't wait to read this
On a different note: I am so excited to read this book! It has been sitting on my desk for about a month now (hence the old photo) and I have only been able to find the time to skim through it here and there but I can not wait to dive into it. Speaking of knitting and reading, I wanted to take a moment to say hello and welcome to all the new visitors from Yarn Along. It is so nice to have you here! I am thrilled Ginny sent you my way hope to see you each week for Crafting On. Okay, back to the homeschooling and house hunting madness!
