Ahhhhh.... I am in the zone. I had a 40 minute massage this afternoon. Jeannie from Bodyworks (will post a link when one becomes available) did a wonderful job and I am definitely feeling more relaxed as a result. Would it be COMPLETELY unreasonable of me to expect a massage every week?

La Chica is coming along nicely. I am hoping to have it done by Tuesday-ish. We'll see. I fear that may be a little too optimistic. There is an extra Stitch-n-Bitch on Wednesday and I'd love to take it with me (if I have a sitter) so my knitting friends can show me how to do the fringe on it. It's probably very easy to do, however I am a visual person and need to see it being done rather than reading about it and trying it myself. Following directions is not one of my strengths!

With 118 days left until Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince hits the bookshelves, I am starting to get some heat from Steve about finishing book 5. I am truly torn on this one... do I read a little bit to appease him, or do I work on La Chica so I have a chance to finish it by Tuesday or Wednesday? Here's the thing. I have over 3 months until book 6 is out, so what's the rush? Hey- can someone invent something that will allow me to read and knit at the same time? If someone does invent such a device, please keep in mind that I'll be needing 40% of the profits as it was my idea. How's THAT for an incentive? LOL.

40 minute massage? That sounds amazing... I need one!

I can't wait for HP either!
 
Use a clip clothes pin to hold the book open while you prop it up against your knees (a recliner or a footstool comes in handy here) and knit away. I've been doing it since college when the only way I could get any knitting done was to do it while I was reading my textbooks. It does work.

One of my knitting buddy's daughter has a bookstore and she recommends the BookMate to hold her book open while she knits. It is a stand with a clear strap to hold the book up and open. I haven't tried one, and think I would have to sit at a table to use it and knit (a bit too much like homework for me) but might be something you'd like to check out.

I actually swear by books on tape. Effortless listening while I knit. I can even listen, knit and walk at the same time (but only real, outside walking, not on a treadmill). I get my BOT from the library and if they don't have the one you want on their shelves, they can order it for you. Lancaster libraries don't charge at all, but I think Chester Co. does have a small fee. But much less than buying.
 
Another HP fan here! The books are so much better than the movies (at least for me!). I cannot begin to imagine the delight of a 40 minute massage-heaven!
