I listen to all kinds of music from Tin Janis to Neil Diamond to Maroon 5 and Keith Urban, Alan Jackson. I find that peppy music makes me go a bit faster and sometimes the quiet music like Tin Janis is what I want. I like a bit of opera bit I found I can't knit to it. Swing music from the fourties is great. I love the Dorsey brothers. Music soothes me and keep me going with my knitting.
