Have you visited this site? I know there are many of you out there that like to listen to pod-casts, music, or even audio books while you knit. Even though Librivox has been around a while, I never actually had an opportunity to check it out thoroughly until yesterday. I started listening to Alice in Wonderland while I was knitting and found myself laughing out loud several times. After I had finished knitting I surfed the titles on the site for more things to listen to and found this awesome recording. Have a listen to this reader’s voice. Too Cool!
On the knitting front, I am busy scouring the internet for video and audio podcasts to put up on the KnitWith.us web site. Today we had a revelation of sorts. We realized that we cannot produce all the video’s we want to do in a timely fashion. So we have decided to locate videos that relate to a certain knitting technique we are currently working on or any others we come across that provide valuable knitting information. We are writing a review of the podcasts and uploading them to the Knitwith.us site. Hopefully, when you are looking for a tutorial on a specific technique you will be able to find a wealth of information on the site to help you. If you know of a good video of this type, please let us know and we will review and upload it.
We will be continuing to add our own videos as well. I haven’t found a chart reading video that I like yet, so that one is probably next up. So, bookmark the site and visit often!
Craftlit is a wonderful podcast that combines knitting talk with wonderful books recorded at Librivox. One of MamaOKnits’ early book selections was The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, read by Chip, the same guy who’s reading the Poe piece you linked to. He truly has an amazing voice and was perfect for the Washington Irving story. I highly recommend checking out Craftlit (www.craftlit.libsyn.com)!
I travel a lot, so when I am on the road, I do a lot of audio books. I loved the “Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Emma was also pretty good.
I also download books from Audible. I have been on a “Henry the VIII” kick for awhile.
There is something very soothing about knitting while listening to someone read with an English accent.
