Where did my knitting go?

We're 3 weeks in (well...almost 3 weeks).  My knitting deadlines have been shuffled off to the side.  They won't be done any time soon.  I'd like to spend more time knitting, but my hands have been pretty full lately.  Literally.

I will say one thing:  Every new mom should have a baby wrap or a sling of some (safe) sort.  I have a wrap and a sling.  I really like the wrap.  It's extremely useful.  I LOVE my sling!!!  Abby has spent nearly every waking moment in her sling for the last week.  In fact, she's in the sling right now, at this moment, as I type this entry.  She's awake, but she's resting her head just above my heart, which means she'll be falling asleep soon and I can put her to bed to do other important pump milk (moo).

I expect I will be able to start knitting again fairly soon.  The nice thing about the sling is how it leaves both my hands free for doing other things (like blogging and eating).  Right now, most of my non-knittingness is due to the fact that every time I sit down to knit, I fall asleep.  Amazing what sleepless nights will do to you. 

I am hoping Abby falls asleep soon.  I'd like to sleep, too.  The lack of sleep combined with the poor weather and dwindling supply of adequate headache-preventing hormones (must admit, I appreciated that little side-effect of my pregnancy) is causing a headache to hover in the peripheral of my brain.

This coming weekend is Thanksgiving (in Canada).  I have much to be thankful for this year.  Unfortunately, that won't include being thankful for finished projects.  I've knitted a grand total of 10 (or fewer) rows in the last 3 weeks.
