How to knit with a toddler around

If anyone knows the answer, please enlighten me.

Iris and her dad went on an outing and I was able to finish the microfiber scarf that she had claimed for herself while I was knitting it. I tucked the finished scarf into her llbear backpack for her to discover. When she found it, she handed it to me and said that she didn’t like it. So I said, ‘Fine, mommy would like to have the scarf for herself.’ I put the scarf on which was enough to send her into hysterics trying to take it back.

I know that scarves are gratiutous when it is 90F outside, but the I made the item for dress up play. I also read the warning on the backpack that it is not for use by children under 4. However, the backpack is also used for dress up play purposes only. It contains her ‘keys’, ‘wallet’, sunglasses and map of the zoo. It shouldn’t damage her young spine.

    If fairly certain that knitting (or anything else remotely productive) is next to impossible to accomplish with small persons underfoot. :)

    You see? That is why it pays to preview and spellcheck. The first word should be “I’m” not “if”. Sigh.
