Hey, Listen! October 3, 2013 – Posted in: How to, Thursday This and That

I am a TV knitter. Just sitting in front of the TV without doing anything is just such a waste of time, especially when you do not have a lot of it to spare. Lately I find I do not watch much TV anymore, I am just not interested in what is on.
I am also a reader. I like to read. However, reading a book and knitting at the same time is awkward, even I cannot really deal with that. Now, remember when you were little and some kind soul would read a story to you? That still works for me! Audiobooks are great, especially when you download the content on a phone or i-Pod so you can listen where ever you go and whatever you do.
I use audible.com (no, I do not get paid anything for telling you that), I like the convenience of how it is set up. For a monthly membership you get one credit and for the credit you can get a book. As a member you also  pay less for all the other offered books. This works for me, especially since I am a repeat offender, meaning I like to listen to the same book again (not back to back of course, but some time later), just the way I do with books I enjoyed reading myself.
A while ago I downloaded the Game of Thrones series (really, where is the 6th book?) and the first book unabridged gets you 33 hours and 50 minutes of listening  knitting time – that is a lot!
Now I just have to find a way to knit AND type at the same time on the computer…hey, how did that voice control thingie work again….?
Happy Knitting, as ever!
