knit and nurse



So, I'm trying not to get too mental about the fact that it is so much harder to get some crafting done these days.

My Mom asked me a few days after I gave birth if I had figured out how to knit and nurse yet. She's a funny one. Well, she knows how super excited I was when I figured out how to use the computer (laptop on a chair) one handed and nurse with Little M so her idea both inspired and challenged me. I'm happy to report that I can now knit and feed my baby at the same time. Let's not get ahead of ourselves though I've just done stockinette stitch in the round so far but hey, it's something.

So, this is Scarlet's dress in progress. I would be a lot further along but, I made a boo boo. I had done about 30% of it and had to rip it out because I twisted it at some point but, all is good now and I'm almost done with the skirt portion. You won't be seeing her model this anytime soon though because I'm doing the 12 month size.

wow you can feed your baby and knit at the same time? That's very, very cool :)

it is very impressive. I'd imagine it's much harder than working on the laptop while nursing.

I could never do the knitting and nursing but I could crochet and nurse.....long long ago.
