The milk chocolate piece of knitting that I'm working on seems to be taking forever to finish, even though it looks as though I've knitted acres and acres of it.


It's true, double moss stitch is a relatively slow stitch to work, but this is starting to get tedious.

When I'm knitting something that doesn't take much attention, I need distraction. I'm not a TV person. I've listened to all the audiobooks available at my library, and now I'm left with the radio. CBC, mostly, although occasionally I twiddle with the dial and manage to pick up NPR. Some evenings I watch Netflix, but here in Canada, the Netflix library is pathetically limited. Any suggestions? What do you like to do while you knit?


  1. I listen to podcasts - Wait, Wait Don't Tell me from NPR is hilareous; Tapestry from CBC is always good; Stories from a Vinyl Cafe from CBC. And well, the hockey playoffs are on, so that keeps me busy too.

  2. A second for NPR's archives: Car Talk, the Diane Rehm show when there's an interesting guest, Fresh Air, Science Friday, some of the music shows. Many are available as podcasts; others are streaming audio.
