Digital Knitting Machine
As we continue to adjust to life with a newborn and very active 5-year-old, knitting has been very much on my mind. I knit everyday until the baby was born and it was not only my job, but simply part of my routine. Like someone training for a marathon, I got my time in and accomplished what I wanted, then put it away until the next day. While around-the-clock feedings, diapers, and maintaining, well, life, has made knitting difficult to squeeze in, I’m looking forward to getting into more of a routine once Astrid starts sleeping through the night and I have more than 2 brain cells to rub together to create new patterns for you all to enjoy.
In the meantime, check out this super cool digital knitting machine. Original article found here. Be sure to click the link below to watch the video.
