I can't tell from your description just what the creeping weed might be. There are many: creeping charlie, henbit, buttercup, sorrel, and ground ivy are all possibilities, but control is slightly different and so is the timing of the control options. I'd take a sample of the problem weed to your local nursery or cooperative extension office for positive identification and control options. Best wishes with your lawn!
