knit knit knit tink tink tink

That's about what I have been doing this weekend. Listening to A Rule Against Murder and working on a secret project, while thinking about shawl shapes. Multi-tasking is Good. :)

I am so loving listening to audiobooks! It turns out my local library has a ton of them and they are just the thing for deadline knitting. But I'm in need of more, so back I go tomorrow. I'm about halfway done with the project and the Maia mitts are nearing test knitting completion. Then there are shawls 3 and 4 for the ebook....

Off to bed with me - long day tomorrow! School (online) starts for the boys and they are super excited.

I too love audiobooks for deadline knitting. Our public library offers two download services - NetLibrary and OverDrive. It definitely saves on gas :-)

Louise Penny's series was the right medicine to get me through my convalescence last year. It's perfect knitting, tinking, thinking audio reading. Take care!

Thanks for the tip about audio books. Hadn't thought of that.

I love audio books - dyeing sessions need me to stock up on them. I have gone through our library's. I joined audible.com a few years ago and love it! Also downloaded lots of free books from LibriVox. Try Donna Leon's Inspector Brunetti series - set in Venice. Maybe to read these - I didn't like the narrator they picked for the audio books so I read these but they are fantastic.

How odd is it that I don't listen to audiobooks while I knit? I love them and listen while I cook, garden and drive but for knitting, I need the TV or my Kindle to occupy my eyes.

Secret Project fun! Shhhhhh!
