Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

Tag, I'm it

My children seem little worse for wear today -- maybe they worked out all the psychological harm I inflicted on them yesterday through imaginative play. I haven't yelled at them yet today, despite Thing 3's screaming insistence that I "Make pancakes NOWWWWW!" I cut that fit off by gently setting down the bowl of hot cereal in front of him and walking off. My kids seem to operate on the "food on the table is worth a thousand fits" method, and once he'd eaten, peace was restored. Okay, that plus two readings of Jan Brett's Armadillo Rodeo. In a row. Now they're in the bathtub. Expiation? I hope so.

Busy day today, with lots of running around (and, I fear, little knitting), so I'm going to go ahead and meme. My internet friend bfmomma tagged me. She and I "met" almost 11 years ago, when we were both expecting our first children, on a due date list. We've been bumping into each other on email lists ever since then, and now, bwaaa haaa haa, she's knitting.

Without further ado, here we go:

I didn't realise other people neglected their children and womanly duties in order to knit. Hello kindred spirit!

I especially like the way you followed "dog poop scooper" with "ice cream scooper"

May you get all your errands done today!

It would be horrible not to have time to knit every day (EVERYDAY!!). But I don't have children, so I'm probably missing something. Teach the kids to knit! Once they get the hang of it, you can finally sit down and knit (a few months later...) while they quietly sit still and knit. Quietly...while sitting still. No noise. Maybe?
