Most of the time I find it really easy to knit with the kids around. However I am working on a fine laceweight project and the stitches have a great love of sliding off the needles if you take your eye off them for a minute.
Yesterday my 3 year old came in to me (for the fourth time) asking me to close his shirt buttons. Now I was in the middle of a 170 stitch lace row working a double decrease so I mumbled something to him hoping he’d wander away. Instead he went behind me and hit his cheek on my ball winder. So now we had tears and open buttons – that’ll teach me to ignore a button call!
