Reading + Knitting = My Life

Wow, I can't believe it's already been a week since my last post!

I've been very busy working—tidying up loose ends from last quarter, beginning my new quarter as a Teaching Assistant, and reading, reading, reading—but I'm also almost done with my three scarves destined for Eastern Europe. I only have a few inches left on the last one (pictured), and then I have a few ends to hide. I'm not sure if I need to block these, so I will probably skip that step because I don't want to wait a year for them to dry (it's currently rather cold and humid in my apartment).

I'm also participating in a knit along, or rather a "test along," for SOCKS 101. It's kind of exciting because Larissa (you can see her blog at Stitch Marker) is writing a book, and this knit along is testing one of her patterns. All of the finished test socks are available for viewing at a special Flickr site. I will post mine either tonight or tomorrow. Isn't that exciting?

Time to get back to the books! I'll probably have a FO post by this weekend.

Hang in there! You can knit and grade at the same time. You can knit and read, and if the knitting is simple, you can do both at the same time too. I've found that professors don't usually appreciate it when their TA knits and teaches, though. Don't ask how I found out.

How do you hold the book open? I would love to read and knit!! I can never get the book to stay put.
