Hey everyone! Someone suggested that I should try to knit without looking at it quite so much, to avoid straining eyesight. Well I've been practicing it on a pair of simple, basic socks for the past few days and I'm getting pretty decent at it, especially on endless rounds of stockinette.
But I just tried it and realized something: I can knit while reading!! Maybe I shouldn't have discovered this skill, because it's really dangerous: I'll never leave the house now!!! Combining reading and knitting, I don't think anything could get better! And this will be a great way to study at school AND get in knitting time: I can be reading about composers, study music literature, practice French verb conjugation, all while knitting sweet socks and other simple designs!!!
I'm willing to bet that a lot of people could do this, and they either already do and haven't told me about it yet, or are about to discover one of the greatest joys in life.
I still can't knit while playing piano, but let's not rule it out: Bugs Bunny played Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody #2 with only six toes...
Well maybe I can't have everything.
Anyhow, I'm off to go finish the last Harry Potter book. And a pair of socks. At the same time.
