If I Were an Octopus…

I often wonder why God didn’t give moms more than two arms. How are we supposed to hold a baby, stir the soup, pick up the socks, go to the bathroom and answer the phone all at the same time? It just doesn’t make any sense. I have been known to lament the apparent shortage of arms in the past,mumbling something to myself about how during childbirth we should sprout another – at least the first couple of times. It has vexed me time and again. But, today, I am thankful that I only have two arms. I am knitting sleeves.

Although, I really can’t complain about these sleeves. These are interesting sleeves.

They are a fun knit, and I am actually looking forward to working on the second one… tomorrow.

But, I am glad that I only have two arms!

  1. The other day I was talking on the phone, brushing my teeth, and peeing (*gasp*) all at the same time. Motherhood really brings out the multitasker in all of us! 😉 PS I made sure I washed my hands before taking the toothbrush out of my mouth. LOL!

  2. Ok maybe neXt year you should knit ME seven sweaters!;} I have found 3 of yours I’d LOVE to have.. In my own colors of course! But SO fun!
