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 and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.
- Joining in with Frontier Dreams today! 
The girls and I headed northeast on Saturday for an impromptu trip back to IL. Knowing that the weather was going to be noticeably cooler and running a little low on fiber at the house, I decided to make a few stops on the way. While in Des Moines, the girls and I stopped at this little lys called Knitted Together. I picked up two skeins, (on Saturday,) that are almost all knitted through!  
I've made a pair of longies for J and am almost done with a little button up sweater for him. I'm in love with the main colors of these pants! So dreamy!! 

Next, on our way east, we stopped at another store in Coralville, IA, called Crazy Girl Yarn Shop and boy did I feel like a crazy girl popping in at 4:56pm when they closed at 5! The woman working was very kind though and had lost track of time herself, so I was able to look for a few minutes without feeling rushed.  Here are some pictures of what I picked up and what will keep me busy over the next few days. I'm planning on some more baby things and some hats for the girls. 

Once again, knitting is and is going to be what is keeping me calm this week. What are you working on?
