Latte baby vertebrae on the way

There’s not much knitting happening here. I’m trying, but it’s hard to juggle a floppy, milk-drunk newborn and a pair of circular knitting needles!

I’ve cast on a newborn sized Baby Vertebrae for Hugo in Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton 8ply (Latte). It’s coming together quite well. The cotton is nice and soft and cooperative. I’m only up to the sleeve separation step of the pattern, so I’ve got quite a way to go yet.

IMG_1347The pattern is just what I’ve come to expect from Kelly Brooker – nice and clear with plenty of options for sizes and yarn choices.

Hugo’s settling into a nice sleep routine without any complaint (touch wood). We even got a six hour stretch between feeds last night – not bad for three and half weeks old.

I wonder if he can sense his mother’s need for some solid sleep and her determination to get back to her knitting?

    Milk drunk – perfect description! I remember my own ones being in that state. So cute! I found that every child got more and more cooperative about sleep. The last one was born huge (9lb 10oz) and he pretty much slept through right from day one. It was unbelievable. They say that once your baby is over 10lb, they do (should!) sleep through the night. Thinking about it now, that makes sense.

    It’s been 15 years since the oldest was a baby, and I still remember the first time she slept 6 hours straight. It was amazing and terrifying, all at the same time. She was so little! (And my second, well, she slept not.)

    I can fully understand how easy it would be to get lost in just staring at the handsome little man of yours. So you must be really determined to be getting any knitting done. I can’t wait to see the finished product!
