I hate when reading keeps me from knitting and knitting keeps me from reading. So what better than to combining those two things and "read" a book while knitting?
I just happened to find out that our library is offering audiobooks for one month at a time. Very ambitiously I downloaded "A Game of Thrones" by George R.R. Martin - it takes none less than 33 hours for the narrater to get through. Well, I've got time. And this reading aloud fits absolutely perfect for my knitting. Usually I take a lot of breaks when I knit - and the same goes for my reading. Normally the only time I get any reading done is right before I go to bed. Otherwise I feel like I have a lot of other things to do.
This is perfect. I get completely sucked into the story all the while knitting like crazy. You should try it. Oh, and for now I'm about half an hour into the book, and I really like it so far. Only 31 and half an hour left. Phew!
