I’ve still not picked up my needles again, so instead you get another picture of baby knits on the baby:
These are the larger of the two pair of tiny socks I knitted — the others are already too small, as are one pair of booties. The first thing the obstetrician said about him when she first saw the baby was “what enormous feet he has!”, and it’s definitely true!

Maybe he will be really tall!
I figured out how to knit while nursing Abi after about 4 weeks.
She would happily lie on the nursing pillow covered in whatever I was working on at that time and happily nurse away.
My only caution is that long DPNs do not work so well with this system and if baby is a flailer, Circs can be a bit of a challenge.
Too cute. Awhile back Normaknits2 had a question about the size of babies feet and found they are all bigger than we would think. She linked to a pattern that seemed to suit most feet.
And remember Mommy sleeps when baby sleeps.
Cute knees! Don’t feel like you have to apologize for not doing whatever things you think you need to apologize for. I had my first and only baby at the age of 40 (I thought I would have all this extra time and energy-I know- what WAS I thinking?) But the best advice was this-your wee baby will only be this wee once. And as a mom, it is your job to enjoy every little thing your baby does. So let whatever you need to slide-because your baby needs you now. Enjoy this time!!!!!
There is not much in the world sweeter than infant feet, regardless of how “enormous” they are :) His look just perfect, not to mention well-shod.
Also…Mel, thank you for the tip on nursing and knitting…I am due here in about 2 weeks and am trying to get Xmas things finished (yeah right)!
Oh. My. God. Is there anything better than sweet baby feet??
rest up. It gets worse, erm…better!
AWwwwww BABY FEET. I miss when my girls had tiny kissable feet. I always loved the feet and the smell of their tiny heads :) precious times Aven, precious times. ENJOY!!!
