Background noise.

Usually the sound of a train or bus.

I love the sound of a train going by...

Stuff I usually listen to that didn't seem to fit the mix or I didn't have on the computer:

Bruce Springsteen (especially "Born To Run" and "Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ")
Neil Young
Led Zeppelin

And of course, entire albums these songs came from.  yeah!

The dog is barking out back; he thinks he's in the band.

lately, i've been crafting without anything on. someone on here said earlier it was very zen. i have to say i really like it. i stay focused on what i'm doing instead of looking up at the tv all the time. plus my toddler is in a habit right now of always wanting something on the tv even if she's not watching it which is 99% of the time. so when she goes to bed, its mommy's quiet time. i love mommy time Smiley

I usually knit while I read (sit cross legged and hold books open with my toes), but I sometimes knit while watching Grey's Anatomy, or while listening to NPR.  Because I'm a dork.

Wow, I would love to be able to read while knitting, but I have never been able to figure out how to hold the book and the knitting. I may have to try this know thanks!!

I usually knit with the TV on. Whatever my hubby is watching becomes my background noise. Usually Cops. When he isn't home, I will pop in a chick flick and knit to that. I tried knitting while listening to my Ipod and that didn't work for me. I started knitting looser and slower to slower songs and tighter and faster to more upbeat music. It made for some very intersing FO's.

I found that I was able to read and knit at the same time when I started using a book clip such as the one on this site:  http://ezbookclip.com/index.htm

I like to verb words. It weirds the language.

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

I listened to lectures on linear algebra while knitting an anthropologie-inspired capelet. You can find lectures (in video form) at MIT's Open Courseware page (http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/web/home/home/index.htm) in lots of nerdy awesome topics!

Also, Neil Gaiman. *swoon*

I've done that, but in biochemistry. We sometimes have courses that get taped and put online. I spent hours last semester knitting in front of the computer listening to biochemistry. The knitting really helped me from falling asleep Smiley

there are two things that I don't believe in: coincidence and leprechauns

Most of the time I have to either watch tv or listen to music. I can very rarely knit with nothing to listen to/ watch.

Life is a track meet not a marathon- get it right the first time.
Being addicted to things is just one of my weaknesses{non drug and alcohol related addictions} so it's not my fault that i'm addicted to knitting.
