With having a new baby on board I find it quite difficult to find the time to crochet. I used to be able to pick up my hook and skeins of yarn just about any time I wanted. I could work up a crochet pattern in an hour, a week or a month. It didn’t matter how fast or slow I went because I had the time. Nowadays I can’t even keep my dates straight and I’m certainly living hour by hour, aka feeding by feeding. I’m not sure how all you parents and grandparents find the time to work up those new patterns. When baby sleeps, shouldn’t you be sleeping? Or eating or doing laundry or cleaning bottles or doing anything baby related! Baby comes first these days. Sometimes when my husband comes home I think “hey, maybe I should pretend to have a really bad stomach ache and go crochet in the bathroom and he’ll never know.” HA, that’d be quite interesting.
With that I bring you to today’s Reader’s En-Gauge question. Last week we asked you how you learned to read crochet patterns. This week it’s all about finding the time to crochet patterns. If you’re a parent, a grandparent or even a nanny who loves to crochet, how do you do it? Where the heck do you find the time?
What are some tips on how to set aside crochet time to yourself?
We can’t wait to hear all your great answers!
