Sit, Knit and Listen - Knitting Patterns for Your Audiobooks

For most of my adulthood, I would either knit or read. When I'm working on a project, I don't read until I've weaved in all my loose stitches. When I'm reading, I don't knit anything, although I will amass a small collection of patterns and yarns that usually end up collecting dust in a corner of my closet. I'm pretty sure buying craft supplies and using craft supplies are two separate hobbies. Although it took me far longer than I'd like to admit, I think I figured out the solution to fix this imbalance between my two favorite wintertime hobbies.
