2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Do You Listen To While Knitting? on: January 10, 2008 10:31:32 AM
When I'm sick of the tv thing, I love NPR!
What's NPR?

I got a couple of great bookstands online (here and here), so I can sit a book on the bed, lay back on the pillows and knit away!
That's amazing! and the first one is only $3.85! definitely going to purchase myself one of those... Tongue
And I had always dreamed of somehow being able to read a book without holding it in my hands, and flipping the pages... like a bookholder that flips the pages for you with a push of a button or something?? wow... i'm becoming lazier by the second....

I have, occasionally, in an extreme fit of boredom and hyperactivity, thrown my bike on the trainer and pedaled away while knitting.
Imagine how much crafting I could get done if I worked for these people!
LOL this is hilarious!!

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.
There are a bunch of science podcasts out there. I'd look on podcastalley.com

Personally, I like to not think about sceince while knitting (since I'm a chemistry major and I think about chemistry almost all the time anyway). I listen to a bunch of podcasts, mostly about books/tv/movies. My favorites are Harry Potter Podcasts: PotterCast, MuggleCast, SnapeCast,
I also like GeeksOn - they talk about movies, tv, video games and whatever....
A podcast about the show "Firefly" The Signal and a really funny one I just discovered about the show "South Of Nowhere" SouthCast

Thank you neggie and whenfishfly for the links! Cheesy

Podcasts. My favorite is Cast On.
LOL.... pun intended??

(referring to your profile pic) you can pretty much call me the "Queen of procrastinators"

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*

Hello fellow knitters!

Knitting is certainly a worthwhile activity in itself, but I have found that using your other senses (ie. listening) that you do not use while you knit can be an excellent opportunity for multitasking, and maximize the time that you have. and I know that many of you already do that, and I am hoping to join in, but I am not sure what all the options out there are, and what you guys do. 

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.

Please post freely as to what is your preferred activity to multitask while knitting! and if you listen to audio books, or the radio, what book? which station?

I also just thought this was an interesting topic to discuss amongst the many other knitters out there. So please join in!  Cheesy

(p.s. sorry, I don't know why I sound so nerdy sometimes when i'm writing up posts....must be something to do with trying to type up smart-sounding essays and such...)
