Sunday Listening

Dear Kay,
As promised, here’s “Out Counting Sheep,” the BBC radio documentary just out from our roving friend, Matt Thompson.
This makes excellent listening while knitting, as Tina pointed out when she heard it on the air yesterday. Also good to hear while taste-testing cookies for the cookie vote below. Which continues until midnight CDT tonight.
Love,
Ann
PS Those are Martha’s Vineyard sheep up there, whom I met a few years back.

  1. Thank you!
    As I am in the middle of my first sweater, this will be just the ticket!

  2. I just noticed that the volume setting for BBC’s iPlayer goes up to 11. :-D

  3. Yay Mel!!!

  4. Ahh! Knitting while listening to a show about sheep. Add a hot cuppa and what could be more relaxing?

  5. This was an odd piece, but I liked it. I was especially fascinated by the old way of counting. Also, the ambient noise mixed with music was interesting…and a little disturbing.

  6. Nice touch: “roving.”
