When do you have time to knit? And read? It's really not about making time to knit or read, but about using every opportunity I get to knit or read, or actually both. Yes, I work more than 100%, and yes, I work out, and yes, I have two kids. How I manage to have time for everything? I'm good in doing two things at the same time. And I'm real good in using every minute. It's not like I spend an hour or two in the couch reading a book every evening. But I read a book while I'm making meat balls and the potatoes are boiling. It takes some minutes. And it's not like I can sit down in the couch while the potatoes are boiling and the meat balls are frying, but I can stand next to the stove with a book in my hand and some music on my headset. I don't have time to read many pages, but a few, and a few pages are better than none. I like to turn up for appointments early. Not only because it means I don't have to stress, but because I can sit down and wait with a book or my knitting, or maybe both. Specially if the appointment is at a café or a place I can sit down. The same goes for seminars at work. It's always some time to knit and/or read before the seminar starts. And I'm lucky, since I have a job where it is fully acceptable to knit at seminars. My focus is so much better when my hands are busy with knitting. And now the soccer season is starting again. What do I do when my son is at soccer practice? I sit in the car with a book and my knitting of course. That's some hours, I'll tell you. In my purse you can be sure you'll always find knitting. You never know when an opportunity comes up. And if there is one opportunity to knit and my knitting is at home, well that is just frustrating. Most of the time I bring a book too, but since e-books where invented I always have some books ready on my phone. The library in Norway have an app where you can borrow ebooks for free. Love it! So now you know the secret to why I can knit and read so much.
