I'd settle for that! He's attached to me all night, AND he eats 2-3, sometimes 4-5 a night too. He's learning to walk, tho, and cutting teeth, so technically he has an excuse. But he's also been that way since birth so I don't know if that's the real cause.

If i dont skip and try the use the first loop it seems like it typically just knots up Atleast my stitches look pretty even to me I have to know someone irl and close enough to visit that could watch and tell me
i know it sucks, but your best bet would be to count. just until you get the hang of what goes where. thats my suggestion to anyone learning. if you start with ten, just keep going and make sure 10 are in each row, and remember that the chain at the beginning counts as 1. and actually you can cheat a little in the beginning, if you get the end and are one short, add in the last. then correct in the following row. just keep on trying, you will get it.

I love shorties or soakers under clothes too. (like tight boy-short shorties lol)

We do a good mix of wool under sleepers and longies/sweatshirts, during the day and at night.
