There are some excellent things that I manage to ignore for years for no good reason. I didn’t discover Dexter until it was already one season from ending, for example, and Buffy already had a little sister by the time I started watching.
My point is that I’m not always the fastest to jump on certain bandwagons and that would be why I have only uncovered the exciting world of knitting podcasts this week. Moving back to Canada now involves frequent walks with our very friendly Golden Retriever whose name is Van after the band Vandaveer.
We – meaning the dog and I – trek out after I finish work every day and wander down the creekside. Now, I like walking. I used to walk two and a half miles to work every day and loved it. Recently Dog and I walked a seven mile round trip purely because it was a nice day and this is Ontario in summer. There are many, many nice days.
The reason I mention this is that there is an exception to my rule. I really hate walking after work. Especially with it being my first week in a not too amazing job. It makes me want to go home and curl up and possibly sleep for a while, not go on a long walk with an excited canine.
Podcasts were the cure.
A thread on Ravelry (LSG in fact which stands for Lazy, Stupid and Godless so post stalk at your own risk) made me want to try podcasts again after failed attempts at finding any good ones a few years ago. Turns out there are many.
First I listened to the Knitmore Girls. They’re a mother/daughter duo who are very cute and interesting. I listened to a few of them last week as well as one Subway Knits and a few Never Not Knitting ones. I have to say that so far Knitmore Girls is my favourite. And I have plenty of back-editions to listen to on my walks!
Now I’m still in the beginning stages of this obsession so I can’t go into much more depth than this. I’ll post in more depth about them at a later date.
What podcasts do you listen to? Seriously, tell me! I want more ear-related fun for my dog walks!
