Music to knit by
Today I found the most perfect music to knit by! My mom had this CD playing in the family room. I was determined to do some homework, but I'm telling you that music was just too irresistable. So I plopped down a big comfy chair and knit and knit and knit to the sound of the Blue Ridge Mountains until the CD finally finished. It was soooo relaxing

Do yall have any favorite knittin' music? and I hope this topic is considered general knitting....

Music to knit by. Hmmm. Let's see.

I play the Celtic Harp, so folk harp music and all sorts of Irish/Scottish music. And I play in an English Contra-Dance Band, so that totally happy sort of music as well - all are favs.

And I play the fiddle - not only Celtic and English Dance tunes [includes Morris Dance music!] but I'm also starting to enjoy the old timey Bluegrass fiddling tunes.

Need more??

Schubert lieder, Rachmaninov concerti, Liszt etudes, and the Beatles It makes knitting a really inspiring, semi-self-indulegent time to appreciate the finer things in life.

If I'm charity knitting or knitting for friends, I usually have some style of worship music on, and I center my thoughts around spiritual relationships and prayer for the person I'm knitting for.

General knitting though, it's all about the best of classical music and my Beatles :D

I like listening to Wait Wait don't tell me or This American Life both on NPR. SOmetimes I listen onthe podcast versions. I tried a book on tape once. I didn't like the book thought. I liked knitting with it though. I like listening to voices while knitting. Like watching movies or TV. It keeps both sides of my brain busy.

Strangely, Dara O'Briain comedy pieces (His Catholic/Protestant mixed marriage skit is the best!) or Brad Paisley, Shania Twain and Celtic Woman. All played on youtube.

Listening to book on tape is a good idea! I always get so frusterated when I can't read my books while I knit...
