2 for 1

I have sometimes wondered if I could knit if I were to go blind. Don't tell me you haven't wondered the same thing. Anyway, I closed my eyes and was able to knit for quite awhile without looking... even increasing for the thumb of a mitten. Then I thought, "Hey! If I don't have to concentrate to knit mittens, maybe I can READ at the same time." Guess what? I can. I'm in rapture... 2 of my favorite things AT THE SAME TIME. What could be better? :) Here's my view of the process. Of course, the book has to be able to lie flat.

I tend to worry about whether or not I could knit with my feet if I ever (God forbid) lose my hands... I almost NEVER stick my hands out the car window now, after I had the frightening thought that if we hit something, I'd lose a hand and not be able to knit anymore... I also worry about whether I'll get cataracts someday and not be able to see... does that make us pathetic? NO....
