How much crafting did you do when dc's tiny?

I suspect I'm being a bit unrealistic but I have urges to knit for dd2,6 weeks but no energy or time. Made all three blankets when pg, though. Have any of you managed much with really little ones? Unfortunately o can't feed no handed otherwise I'd be prolific!

Ah man I get so frustrated with lack of time I have for projects. Ds2 is 9 wks and feeds every 2 hrs so evenings are just spent either cooking our dinner, feeding him, collapsing.
Daytime I just spend my life running round after ds1, 2.4.
At the weekend I got desperate and just gave DH them both to look after (and kept out of my sight unless a bf needed!) while I ran up tablecloth/napkins I'd been dying to do for ages. it felt soooo good just to tackle a little project from start to finish!

It's got to get easier- not sure when though!

My mum made all our clothes bar socks and underwear! How?

Not sure dd will say the same of me! But not all Mum's efforts were triumphant in style stakes!
