Episode One: Welcome to My Library

Well, here we are!

I wanted to welcome you all to CraftLit, a Podcast for Crafters. I imagine you’re here because you like to work with your hands, but you also like to read. If so, this is the place for you! Our program will follow a similar pattern every week. After some introductory comments, a web, magazine, or book review (This week Mason-Dixon Knittng), and perhaps a song, I will include a chapter or two from a book. We will listen to that book until we’re done with it. And because I’m a former English teacher, I’ll give you some things to listen for in the chapters we hear--just to give you something else to do while you’re knitting, spinning, crocheting, weaving, or sewing. Any painters?


Get comfortable. Find your tools. Check the volume, and enjoy, with me, the beginning of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, recorded by Annie Coleman.

Intro music: "Chasing Hiro" by Joshua Christian of Syracuse, NY. I found the music on


  1. I like this idea. I always wanted to own a bookstore. Then I started knitting. Now I want to own a book/yarn store. Enjoyed the show and will definitely be back. Thanks.

  2. I can't wait to hear your podcast. I used to live in Peekskill before moving to NM! I miss the Black Cow and the Hudson SO much.
