What is this, media week? The Plain Dealer (Cleveland’s major newspaper) wrote a lovely blurb about Stitch Cleveland’s launch party this weekend. If you don’t want to read the scanned-in JPG, here is the electronic version.
Tomorrow, Kelley Petkun of Knit Picks is interviewing me for her podcast. She also reviews non-knitting books. So, here’s my mystery du jour: how can people fit in reading with all their knitting? I am a major-league reader. I have had parents take me aside in the library line and ask, on their curious child’s behalf, how long it will take me to read [all the books I have in my arms]. Poor kid never knew what hit him. I was afraid his eyes were going to get stuck that way. But it usually comes down to an either/or proposition — they don’t generally make audiobooks of the things I like to read, so I can’t listen and knit.
(For example: here’s the last book I read. At 576 pages, we’re talking days of audiobook).
Guilty pleasure of the week: watching the Victoria Beckham Coming to America special. I hurt my wrist the other day, so knitting and anything involving gripping motion with my hand was out all night. It’s still hurty, actually. I’m trying to work through the pain, which is stupid but necessary. Deadlines loom!
