Multitasking

I haven’t been reading much at all lately. When I read I feel like I’m neglecting my knitting. I’ve tried audiobooks but they don’t seem to work for me. My mind wanders for a minute and the next thing I know I’ve lost track of the story. I decided since I had to take N to the library I’d pick up a couple of books and see if I could read and knit on my mindless sock at the same time. It was tough going at the beginning (when I had taken this photo) but once I grabbed the big alligator clip I keep on the refrigerator to hold one side of the book open I was all set. I’m now 9 chapters in and at 6 1/4″ on the leg of the sock. I wonder which I’ll finish first: the sock or the book.

The book is Raining Cats & Dogs by Laurien Berenson. It’s the 12th book in the Melanie Travis series. I love a good dog mystery!

    Laurien is one of my favorites since she started this series! I also now have a standard poodle, so I love them even more. I just bought her newest in both e-book and print, and Laurien sent me a signed book plate to go in the book. 🙂

    Worth a try, like you I tend to zone out on e-books or even tv. Usually my knitting is accompanied by cooking or home renovation tv because it doesn’t matter if I stop paying attention for a bit

    If I listen to an audiobook, it’s a easy story, either a cozy mystery or juvenile fiction.
