Can't find the crafty thread anymore...

Currently it is taking me about a week to get done what would have taken me a day or so pre-Nora. I feel guilty for shaking her little head around attempting to nurse and knit. :) Is anyone getting anything made since the arrival of our babies?

 

I remembered that we had the thread about what we were working on for babies when I came across a shot of a pile of Nora knits. I wanted to post it there, but can't find it so thought I'd start a new one. :)

Here is a pinwheel blanket that I knit also:

DDC Crashing....as a knitter - those are Beautiful!  I love the pinwheel blanket.  Is that Chroma? Or something else?

Wow! I love it all! I so wish I could knit...I've made nothing since Lennon came, but I've been itching to sew something lately!

Please tell me that you knit those gorgeous pieces before Nora was born! I have been able to knit here and there. I'm missing my needle though! SInce Juliet has been born I have knit a hat, a skirted soaker for her photo session, and I have started a couple pair of booties. I need to do more though.... sigh.

 

I can't quite knit while nursing because J has been spitting up like crazy and I always have to be ready for it!

Adore - That is all pre-Nora's arrival. I have only completed a sweater, soaker and a pair of longies in the 9 weeks she's been with us. And, the day I finished the soaker, I also lost it. :/ I am hoping that I can figure out a system to have a clean house, meals and knitting time.

kaismum - Oh no!!!  I'll ask St. Anthony to help you find your soaker....  He helps me all the time. Haha! You never know!

wave.gif Hi Adina, you are in my sisters DDC and I sometimes crash that one!

 

that pile of Nora knits is scrumptious!

 

Since Cora has been born I have replaced the elastic in about 15 diapers, I have sewed some longies, some soakers and made some fleece diaper covers and cut out more fabric for fleece diaper covers, I have sewn a skirt for a birthday party, a stuffed elephant for my sister, and appliqued 4 t-shirts. There might be something else.

It really does take so much longer and when I spend my time doing this the whole house falls into complete dissarray!
