I don't have a  TV anymore, so mostly I listen to the radio.  And I mostly knit in the evenings, so I listen to Fair Game and On Point on my local NPR station.  I LOVE Fair Game, it's really very entertaining...if you like TV shows like the Daily Show you will probably also enjoy FG.  I think you can download the show for an mp3 player also.

It's not knitting, but I love watching hockey games while doing cross-stitch.   Grin  (that's on the TV, I mean, not at the rink -- I give my full concentration to the game...and my beer....when I'm watching a live game!)

I like to knit while watching movies or TV.  I made Christmas presents this year while watching Ugly Betty on DVD.  I also will listen to whatever on my iPod (usually Beck, David Grey or some indie artist).  I also have been slowly working my way through The Omnivore's Dilemma (the audiobook).

wow that's so great to hear what all of you guys do, and what kind of songs and shows you watch.  looks like ipod and tv is what most people prefer to do?

I like listening to podcasts. There's a sermon audio on iTunes from The Village Church located in the DFW, Texas area. Otherwise, sometimes I'll pop in a movie, flip on the tv, or just let my music shuffle. It's good to knit with company, too, cause you can just chat and listen to people.
that's a really good idea, to listen to sermons on podcasts, or tape, etc. i would definitely have done that a month ago, but i have sorta been questioning the faith thing lately...
I find that when i'm knitting, i tend to have to concentrate reeeaaally hard, and i can't really talk to other people, or watch tv for that matter... but it is a very good idea for most of you expert knitters!

Sometimes, when I don't feel like reading a certain book, or I am behind on one for school, i get one on tape and listen to it while i knit. It actually kind of helps, because i don't get bored with the book on tape, because I have something to do while I listen.
  I would love it if I could get my chem text books on tape.  It would be great to be able to study while I knit.
lol. I would also LOVE it if someone made a tape of my organic chem textbook.... hey I can listen to lecture audios while i knit!! *lightbulb goes on*

i crochet while watching movies. typically i pop in a movie i've seen a gazillion times so i can know exactly whats going on when and i don't really have to pay attention, its more for background noise. i also crochet while riding in the car. i make my b/f drive everywhere when we're home and even if its for a half hr drive i'll try and get some done b/c w/ a 16 month old at home, i don't have too much time to craft!

I am a university student so personally I had wanted to see if there are any sciency textbook material that you can listen to, rather than read Cool... but anything is good really. I know that many of you listen to audio books and the radio.

I'm not a fellow knitter actually, but I spotted this and thought I might be able to help. It depends where you are really but there are a lot of Open University tapes hanging around, (I've got at least one covering radioactivity). They're used for students doing courses at the OU so I'm guessing the information is fine, and the background knowledge probably useful. and, from a non-science point of view, their voiceovers are pretty soothing Smiley

Let me know if that's helpful to you?

as I say, I don't knit, but I've been listening to the white stripes new album while I'm breaking stuff apart for my latest project Smiley I guess anything rhythmic is probably good for the ol' yarn-wrangling though.

Not really a resource for textbooks (unless, I guess, you're in English or Classics or something), but I love listening to Librivox. They've got tons of audio files of books read by volunteers up for free. It's really nice for when you're doing something mindless (stockinette), especially to a deadline, when you have lots of time to listen to something the whole way through.

Otherwise, I just listen to the TV/movies. Nothing subtitled, though... that doesn't work so well. Wink
