You guys. I have very very exciting news!
Is it precisely related to knitting? Not on its face, but I think the connection will become clear.
My kid had a playdate yesterday. Our neighbor from down the street came over (by himself!) and the three kids played on their own for just about 2 hours. We’ve never had a kids-only playdate before, and as much as I like having adult friends over, too, this was shockingly lovely.
The kids barricaded themselves into the bedroom, played trains and trucks and LEGO and pretended to be dragons and came out only to ask for a snack about halfway through.
YOU GUYS!!! I GOT TO SIT DOWN BY MYSELF AND KNIT WHILE MY CHILDREN WERE AWAKE AND IN THE HOUSE AND IT WAS AMAZING!
It really feels like this is the beginning of a new era of parenting.
Plus, I got the front of my toddler’s sweater done up to the split for the V-neck. Shocking.
When was the last time that you got surprise time to work on your knitting?
Nice! Life is surprisingly full of wonderful phases! Love the cables you’ve done on the sweater–very crisp looking!
Love that sweater!
Going into lockdown for Covid, lol! Definitely a surprise, and I would have gone monkey-nutz without my knitting!
