Since I am an old lady, I like 60's music, but I usually watch tv or listen to an audio book when I knit. I am a freak for Harry Potter books, but I use them to make me fall asleep since I know them so well I can recite the book in parts. I love **** Francis and will listen to his books over and over, like Robert B Parker Spenser character books too. A few months ago, I downloaded some young person's books written by John Grisham and they were wonderful. Like Jan, I usually turn the tv onto something I have seen before so I can listen to it, but not have to watch it as I am not talented enough to knit without looking.

I usually listen to Hilary Stagg, which usually puts my wife to sleep. Extremely relaxing.

Wisdom is knowing what to do. Skill is how to do it. Virtue is getting it done.

That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.

It usually depends on where I'm at. If at home I sort of listen to whatever hubby has on the TV. Our TV is one most of the time mainly as noise as I don't think either one of us really watches it.

If I am taking care of the grandkids (2 and 5) at their house. I listen to the book that I have on my I-Pod when I put them down for their "rest". It gives me somewhere between 45 minutes and and hour before they are up and going again.

I listen to old time radio shows. There's a vast array of shows of all types available on line. I like the old mysteries best.

It may sound like a joke, but when I listen to music while knitting it's usually metalcore or screamo like Underoath or Demon Hunter. But I've got mellow in the itunes mix too.

I also listen to Old Time Radio. I was only a few years old when they stopped broadcasting those shows. I asked my mother why they did. She said it was because television was becoming more popular. But I'm discovering those old shows for the first time. My favorites are Nero Wolf and Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar. Love detective shows. has a webcast where they run various detective shows back to back on Athena365. If you want to choose your individual shows, here's a site. The site has a silly name and strange categories,but the OTR one is legit.
Welsh corgis are cool.

I prefer to have the TV on when I knit - as long as it's not something i need to pay too much attention too. Also, musical movies are nice. I put on the live recording of RENT the other day while knitting, but unfortunately i was singing along so much I purled when I should have knitted one line LOL
