I have a confession to make.
I have not faithfully listened to every single thing that you have recommended in our ongoing Saturday feature, Knit to This.
It is hard to keep up, woman. You have such a dogged ability to throw out high-quality knittertainment that I have every intention of absorbing it all, yet I have only two ears, two eyeballs, and 24 hours in a day.
But now, Kay, now is the time. I’m going to dig deep in our Knit to This department because I know it’s all good. All killer, no filler. Nothing in here is like that podcast that one’s cousin swears is great but in fact is not.
You may have noticed that we are being encouraged to shelter in place, socially distance ourselves, basically hunker down and get out of the way while this virus plays out.
I just checked, and at this point we have 147 recommended items to which one might knit. It runs the gamut, these recommendations. Food. Gardening. Volcanoes. English grammar. World War I. The Moon shot.
Some are obvious: the stunning true crime podcast S-Town.
Others feel like you’re hanging with the galpals: Call Your Girlfriend.
A podcast quite timely these days: Inside Trader Joe’s.
A podcast specifically designed to help you fall asleep: Sleep with Me.
And, truth to tell, my all-time favorite Knit to This is “I Can See Clearly Now” with Jimmy Cliff. I cannot hear this song without jumping up and dancing it out.
I figure I’m at least halfway through all 147 Knit to Thises, because I’m the one who wrote half of them. Now, I’m going to complete my set and finish listening to yours.
For those who all of a sudden have time available, here’s where to find the Knit to This department.
