What do you like to watch/listen to while you knit?



If it’s a simple project, I knit while reading (yay ereaders).  If I can’t knit on autopilot?  Then whatever’s on.  Just background noise.

I thought I was the only one who did the ereader knitting thing.

I have a tablet, so I’ll read comics/books when I knit, though I confess I knit when my partner and I watch our nightly programs/movies. I will knit wherever whenever lets’ be real.



Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.

"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement. 

I hope her arresting officers feel REEEEAL good about their life choices that led up to this moment, because arresting a holocaust survivor for using her first amendment rights is some next-level bullshittery.


Our son has created a teddy bear family to emulate being a dad, just like his amazing daddy fourcolorfrenzy. Yesterday, while I was home sick from work, he asked if I could knit a sweater for his ‘son’, Little Teddy Junior. So here we are so far, almost done (first time knitting a sweater, so ignore the half purl/half knit, I forgot to flip).
