I have been dividing my time between knitting and reading. It’s a real struggle for me to balance two things I really enjoy. The best way to handle it was to set a goal for the sock and once it had been reached move on to reading. I completed the heel flap, heel turn and picked up the gusset stitches. It took a bit over an hour or so. At that point I rewarded myself 7 chapters. I figure if I continue this way I’ll keep up with the knitting and read the book slow enough to savor it.
