Do you knit and read at the same time?

Recommended Posts

Actually simultaneously? I"m trying to figure out how to get both my knitting and reading done. I had been knitting at night while watching TV, but I'd be happy to read and knit... I tried last night and found it awkward...


Have you figured this out? How do you prop your book? Can you lie down, or is it better to sit?


Multitaskers, unite!

I have been knitting for... 30 years? And have never found a decent way to knit and read at the same time.


I do, however, listen to books on tape. (ok, not so much on tape anymore, but...)


Personally, I'm waiting for my near vision to go to the point that I have to hold the book with my feet to be able to see the letters. Then, I'll have no problem doing both. Until then, though, both the knitting and the book are competing for the same space, about 14 inches from my face, and I have nothing to turn the pages. :D
