I'm currently obsessed with The Decemberists. I could just listen to them for weeks on end.

If it's not music, then I'm listening to podcasts or audio books.

I've actually never listened to plain music while knitting. I have always watched TV. Maybe i should try it!

Well, knitting is my relaxation, so i don't listen to any music, but enjoy the silence (he-he, I like Depeche Mode too)...Knitting means i'm done with chores, the pets are sleeping all over and don't bother me by playing with my knitting... But when i do listen to music while knitting, that would be Beatles, russian music (nostalgic stuff) and oldies like Ella Fitzgerald, Sara Vaughan...Oh, and Cesaria Evora... But that's for knitting, other activities have other music

I usually listen to classic rock (Q104.3, for those of you near me). It gets me in a good mood.

Look at my signature!

I usually listen to piano musics, they calm me down while knitting and make me happy while knitting.

I also listen to jazz piano musics, the relaxing improv kinds

Right now I'm a baseball knitter! I settle in on the couch with some knitting and a Braves game... pure bliss.
