Crocheting to an Audio Book

Books are amazing.  They take you to a place you can't go on your own whether it is in the future, the past, a distant location, or some other fantasy.  I adore a well told story.

Last night I worked on crocheting again.  I spent four hours working on gifts and got two and a half gifts done.  At the same time I listened to a book.  There is something about having a book read to you that is just entrancing to me.

I find I crochet more, getting more accomplished while I listen to an audio book.  I finished off Immortal in Death and thoroughly enjoyed the entire book.  Today I want to work on more gifts.  This means I'll be finishing the half gift from last night and then I have a larger gift to work on for a student worker who is graduating.

I'll have one more (I think) to finish for student workers and she asked me for something warm as she hates the cold of winter.  I'll work on something for her next.

After that I'll be working on gifts for my faculty.  I've got a huge stash and I'm hoping to be able to pull out of my stash to create all sorts of goodies for them.  I'll have to see what colors I have and such.  I also have new books that I want to try different projects so I guess they are going to be guinea pigs for my crocheting.  I hope they don't mind.

For this weekend, I'm hoping to finish the student worker projects and maybe a little bit of writing projects.  I have to copy stuff over from my flash drive and see what the plan is for the day.  Ken has already run errands and I didn't have to go with.

I've decided that at heart I must be a hermit because once I get into my house, I just want to stay in my house and not go wandering around too much.  It's good to snuggle in - especially as we are getting colder - and just work on projects at home.

I'm going to make sure I take pictures of the projects I'm doing and I'll post them after I've given the gifts.  It is definitely a colorful year for gifts.  I like almost all the colors I have been working with and when I look in the bag of gifts that are done it is great to see the rainbow.
