I Love My Cordless Hands-Free Phone

I don't know what I ever did without my cordless phone, with its Time-Life operator headset. (You remember those commercials--you know what I'm talking about.) It's one of the best investments I ever made, because it allows me to knit while I'm talking on the phone. I mean, years ago before I got that phone, I actually had to use my hands to hold the phone while I was talking. Think of all those valuable knitting hours I wasted! (I do talk on the phone a lot, so the number of hours was substantial.) It boggles the mind. Anyway, I made a bunch of phone calls this afternoon, catching up with various family members, and, as a result, made a lot of progress on the Estonian lace scarf. I did switch briefly to a simpler project that didn't require so much attention, but in total I'm pleased with the amount of knitting I got done. It's multitasking at its finest!


Funny you should mention this as I must get one my very elderly mum won't get off the phone and I'm twitching to get on with knitting at the same time ,sounds harsh but old folks forget they've told you all of it many times before ! .
I know what you mean! I go through the same thing with my elderly aunt.

Hey, UDG! I stumbled across this on the Blogger front page. Not explicitly knitting, but what a great name:

And here's yet another one that popped up on the ticker!

Knitting Stuff
I'll have to mention Quilt Pixie to my hairdresser. His mom used to quilt before her arthritis got really bad, and now he is trying to use up her stash of fabric by making quilts himself.
