New Horizons

Stitchy’s not the only one exploring fabric love these days. I found this one in the clearance section on, and it’s called Knitmare on Elm Street.

I love it.

I believe it’s destined to become a nursing cover. I saw some nifty ones that have neck straps as to leave the arms free to hold baby and not worry about it slipping, and they look like it would be easy to whip one up at home. The longest part might be getting my sewing machine out of the closet and ready to use.

And while I’m nursing him, I can stare down adoringly at the cover and imagine what EJ will be like in about 10 years:

Wool pants (and scowl) included.

  1. Alison used that fabric last year to make little project bags for all of her knit-buds. Mine is in this green colorway, and it’s so silly it’s cute!

    You can see hers here:

  3. I just snorted water up my nose… that fabric is AWESOME!

    …and that little boy resembles mine. Hm… funny how that works out. LOL

    I’ve made several nursing covers. The key is to insert boning between the neck straps so you can look at your baby while you’re nursing.

    Congrats on your new baby – it gets easier. It’s hard to believe mine is already almost 9 months!
