How do people find time to knit with children? When I had 3, it seemed no problem. I could knit and supervise play at the same time. I had time to knit enough for my family and even do a few commissioned items a month. But not with 4. Between taking care of the kids, the house, the animals, and homeschooling 3 of the 4 children, knitting has had to take be put on the back burner. It doesn't help that whenever I sit, the youngest thinks it's time to nurse or cuddle. I don't mind because I know there will come a day when the cuddles are fewer and far between. I miss knitting but I prefer the cuddles.
So in the meantime, I knit while standing waiting for the dryer to finish up or dinner to finish cooking. A few minutes here and there. I knit while bathing the young ones. I don't knit during naps because that is a precious time where I can really get some cleaning done. Sometimes I'll knit in bed after the kids are asleep but that's usually my reading time.
This pair of shorts for myself would normally take a week at the most for me to knit. I've been working on these for a month now. I only have about 10 rows until it's done but that will probably take 2 days of sporadic knitting to do.
Oh well. I do miss knitting but knitting can wait. Blogging might have to wait too. Kiddo is crawling up on me for cuddles again.
How do you find time to knit?
