Knitting and reading

(this post contains affiliate links)


Well, that fourth hat takes a long time. I couldn't take it with me on our little trip to Bonaire (didn't want to risk having to throw one of the two sets of needles I brought with me to Curacao in the bin at the airport), so it's been on hold for two days. I'm looking forward to picking up my knitting this afternoon, after I do some more important things first.


The good news is that I could take my e-reader with me, so I've been reading a lot. I also found ou that with my e-reader t I can knit and read at the same time.I used to be against multi-tasking (I don't think it's productive at all), but doing two things I love at the same time can't be wrong, so I'm rolling with it.

If the cats don't bother me, that is. They're very interested in both my knitting and my reading.

I'm working my way through the Matchmaker Mysteries series by Elise Sax. when I took this picture I was halfway book 4, but we spent a lot of time on the airport yesterday and now I'm halfway book 5. I'm loving every one of them.

Linking up with As Kat Knits' Unraveled Wednesday


  1. Amazon tells me the Matchmaker Mysteries are similar to Janet Evanovich's books which I loved. I've added the Matchmaker Mysteries to my que. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. Cats who read and knit! Amazing. LOL!

  3. I knit and read my kindle and it's double the fun and the the ultimate multitasking loves :) I adore your gray color yarn :)

  4. Oh, thanks for the book recommendation! And, that cat! Ha!

  5. Oh, that means I need to check out Janet Evanovich. Thanks! ;-)

  6. It is. Multitasking fun things must be a good thing.

  7. He's a funny little guy. Right now he's not well, he got into a fight with the dogs (he was stealing their food, so he sort of had it coming). We'll think he'll survive, luckily. And I've still got two other cats (they're not ours, we are staying with friends) checking out my knitting and my reader.

  8. I haven't heard of the Matchmaker Mysteries, but I'm gonna have to take a look - thanks!

  9. It's a fun series. The books are a mix of cozy mysterie, romance and chicklit. I really like them. Very relaxed reading ;-)
