A Balanced Life

I have no knitting photo's to show. I am on row 26 of the Swarm section of my Bee Fields Stole which looks just like the rows I showed last week so I won't bore you.

Instead I am going to blog about the fact that I think Knitting has taken too much of my free time. I haven't read a book since the last Harry Potter came out almost a year ago. I don't have a lot of free time but I have devoted all of it to knitting.

Well - I suddenly became intrigued by this. I'm thinking that if it is more convenient to buy and move books around maybe it will result in my reading more. I do miss reading. So - I spent part of today (I took a day of vacation) to read 60% of The Appeal by Grisham. Felt good. I need more balance in my life.

I'm not going to stop knitting. In fact - I also bought a pair of these this week. I found them on Ravelry to show off handknitted socks. I went up a half size and they are so neat!

FYI - I did seam up my Antique Lace vest. Love it. I will post a photo (I took one this AM for my family but didn't think it was suitable for my blog.. hah!)

Have a good week!

I love the idea of a little pad to travel around with and read anywhere I want! Another little gadget inspired by Star Trek (I think LOL!).

I just received it today and I discovered that I can email to it. So I sent it one of my knitting patterns. The resolution isn't as good as with the book I downloaded but it will be wonderful for traveling.
