More about me...I started knitting about 8 months ago and have become a bit obsessed. I'm still a beginner or maybe intermediate but I find it very relaxing to knit at night after a long day of running after the kids. It's also nice to actually be creating something. So much of what I do gets undone within minutes- the food I cook is eaten, the clothes I washed get dirty again, etc. It's nice to have something with some permanence to it. My only issue is that once I start a project I want to finish it ASAP and I find myself knitting all the time, or thinking abt when I will have time to knit, calculating how long it will take to finish my project...a little OCD, I know. I'm like that with books too. Once I start one I have to finish it.
Right now I'm working on a baby blanket for my almost 3 year old daughter. Why does she need a blanket, you ask? She doesn't but I made one for her baby brother and she asked me if I can make her one too. Being that she is the middle child and we are always trying to give her more attention, I figured it might be nice for her to have something made special for her. Plus I had a pattern I wanted to try :) It's 25 squares plus 4 large panels around it. Once I finished sewing the squares together I gave it to her. Her reaction was totally worth the effort. She loves it and sleeps with it every night. Mission accomplished!

Can't believe I actually started my own blog. Not that anyone knows abt it so for now I'm talking to myself. Still, might as well introduce myself :)
I am a 25 year old stay-at home mom of 3 under 4, rebbetzen, doula, writer, knitter. My oldest has special needs- he is incredible and also incredibly frustrating at times :) I'm originally from Vienna, Austria but now live in NY. Spent 5 years in Israel and am dying to move back there ASAP, like yesterday. Just need to convince my wonderful husband who wants to stay in NYC to inspire people.
That's enough for now...
