Knitting in Two-Minute Increments


The past year and a half has taught me many, many things, one of which is that it's incredibly hard to get things done with a baby or toddler running around (I know that every mother just said "Duh!" but cut me some slack).

I've learned that every second of free-time counts when it comes to getting things done which is why having my sewing machine down in the basement doesn't always work so well.  There's no running down there for two minutes to get some sewing done and because of that I usually only end up sewing on the weekend.  Technically I could sew at night, but truth be told, I usually collapse into bed around 8 p.m.  (Yeah, I know.  You're totally jealous of my wild and exciting life!)

So, I've learned how important it is to have a knitting project on the needles, laying around the living room, perfectly available for when I have 2.25 minutes to knit a round or two.

Knitting definitely fell by the wayside when I discovered by love for sewing, but I think it's definitely making a come back.

Especially seamless, top-down garment.  They hold a special place in my heart.

Yarn: Malabrigo
Color: Emerald
Take a couple measurement, do a little simple math, and you're good to go.

This sweater required a little more brain power than normal because of the cable running down the front of it (taken from Vogue Stitchionary 2).  And apparently it required more brain power than I had available because once it was all finished I realized that there is a mistake at the bottom of the cable.

Fortunately it's a fairly small one that I think would only be noticed by a very vigilant knitter.

Fortunately, Baby O is not one yet.


  1. So lovely! It looks darling on Baby O. But really what wouldn't?

  2. You are so talented! Looks great! Wish we had some cool weather for one. :)

  3. This sweater is amazing, and yes moms have to craft in very short increments of time! :)


A comment? For me? You're the best!
