When the baby starts to fuss, I stick her in the wrap and it soothes her in minutes. That thing works like magic! And when she calms down enough to take a nap, I curl into my plush recliner (with her still in the wrap!) and go to work. Baby items are the perfect small projects! I choose the ones that are quick, easy, and monotonous. I started off knitting, but those long needles were a little cumbersome to maneuver. I kept hitting the baby in the head with them and she was not happy. So after working on 3 little hats, I decided that crocheting was the way to go.
|work in progress ... something pastel for Easter!|
So far, I've completed 6 projects and I am obsessed. I dream about yarn. I skipped a birthday party so I could stay home alone to crochet. I look for patterns on my phone when I am feeding the baby in the middle of the night. I can't wait to do more! I know it sounds crazy, but hey, at least the babe will have warm and toasty outfits for next winter, right?
