I was looking for a new kind of pastime. Something creative, something just for me, something that could offer me a quick and simple hideaway from the non-stop mothering. But well... also something that I could combine with a baby that does all her naps till about 9 in the evening in the baby carrier. Yes, again... I like my bed but somehow my babies don't ;).
So knitting it is: freestyle, for the time being all-mistakes-are-allowed knitting. No thoughts, no patterns, just a lot of colors and every so often a change of thread. So nice!
Though I don't really expect I'll become any good at knitting, I can't help but already be quite fanatical. I use any stolen moments to work on my freestyle patch that is slowly but surely growing into a scarf, I've already ordered some better yarn than this simple cheap stuff and mostly I dream about being able to make all the gorgeous children's patterns that I've been collecting (though currently reading them still feels like reading Chinese).
Knitting while carrying a baby of almost eight kilograms by the way isn't such a good idea, ergonomically spoken, but when it's so fun to do it's hard to stop. So this is how I walk around the house these days...
