006 and 007 // Before And After

{hats 006 and 007}

pattern for both hats: Jane Hat, by Jane Richmond
yarn: I Love This Yarn! solids in forest green (284 yards total between both hats)
needles: sizes US 8 / 5.0mm and US 10 / 6.0mm 16" circulars

By 9am, before I had Owen, I had:
  • Woken up
  • Showered
  • Had a can of Coke Zero
  • Driven to work
  • Worked for one hour 

By 9am, now that I’ve had Owen, I have:
  • Woken up
  • Changed two diapers
  • Fed Owen a bottle and cereal/bananas breakfast
  • Played in his exersaucer
  • Played in his play gym
  • Practiced sitting up and rolling over
  • Put Owen down for his first nap of the day
  • Worked out
  • Showered
  • Eaten breakfast
  • Had a can of Coke Zero
  • Knitted on a hat
  • Spent 20 minutes on the computer 

It’s amazing what that extra hour or so can give me in my day!


  1. Oh my goodness Robyn, what time do you wake/ get up?! You are one productive lady! I've been thinking for a few weeks that I need to work on my organisation, particularly for finding enough time to write my blog, design and make things, and expand Je Suis Une Monstre. I work part time in a bar, and usually finish about 4am. Then I get up and go snowboarding. A lot of my free time is spent asleep, re-energising my body! Early mornings are out of the question for me, but perhaps I can get more out of my evenings :) I'll aim to have as much done as you! Great job! :) Katie. xxx

  2. haha! i get up at like 5:30am, when Owen does. When he naps, I knit, thus our house is always a bit messy. Plus, I knit when we're in the car, and yesterday I knit while we watched football for several hours while spending time with extended family. Basically, if I'm not giving Owen attention, I've got knitting needles in my hands!

  3. What a lovely shade of green and gorgeous design!
