I have found a wonderful way to keep busy during my lunch break at work – my break is at an odd time and I’m usually alone. I like to read and listen to recorded books. I have been reading and listening to the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters — when listening to a book I can stitch or knit — something simple that doesn’t require much thought. The past year I have been knitting bandages for the D.O.V.E. Fund — I have finished three and am working on the fourth.
Football season provides many opportunities to knit bandages — all those hours in front of the TV usually has me making cotton washcloths or dishcloths, now I will be working on bandages, too.
