I often face the same dilemma. Sometimes I can do both at the same time, depends on the project AND the book!

and that is why I started listening to books! I have only listened to a couple, but I am hooked. I'll have to check out that book - it sounds worth the time!

Such a delicious dilemma. I understand. I have the same problem. It's also the time of year. Every spring and summer my knitting production (and, sometimes, desire)wane a bit. We have so very many "musts" in our lives, how about just doing what calls you at the time? Oh, and it's finally Wednesday!!!!

My constant dilemma! Especially this time of year -- because now I'm adding gardening to the mix! Listening to books helps (but I know you already do that). Oh, for more hours of leisure in our days. . .

Yes, it's a tough choice!

I feel you lol.

Always, always, always...my dilemma. Thanks for posting, because I always read my list of blogs, and it sounds like everyone spends hours doing what I want to do...even though they say they work etc. I was wondering what I was doing wrong, and why I couldn't figure it out...so thanks for sharing that I am not alone.

I used to knit and read all the time, when I knitted more. Has to be good for keeping the brain young, right?!

I'm in just the same boat. I feel like I can knit or read - not both. I'm not big on audiobooks. So lately I'm reading a lot and my poor knitting is languishing. I'm sure that it'll turn around eventually.

This is one of the reasons I love my Kindle--I can prop it on my leg and read WHILE I knit without worrying about losing my place!

I have the same dilema. I read for a 1/2 hour every night, usually between 8 and 8:30. Sometimes longer as I'm really into it, sometimes a little less if I just can't get into it. Sometimes the knitting calls and then the reading ends earlier.

Well, in this case, read. The library book has a (new) deadline...

I love audiobooks and always have one going for knitting time or to help me relax on my lunchtime walks. But some books beg to be read by the eyes. If I had to choose, I'd knit at lunch and read in the evenings. Maybe I'd make fewer mistakes in my knitting.

Oh, I understand, my friend. Still... it is wonderful to have the time and brain-power for either.

It is such a dilemma. Add the garden work, spinning (here), weaving (here), and there are even more decisions to make.

Choices, choices ;-) I've got a beaded project in mind too, and am currently waiting for a bead order to come. Can't wait to see yours!
