Saturday I received a HUGE box of yarn support from Knit Picks based on a swatch of the pattern and the idea I had for a three-pattern collection (might expand it if I can figure out mitts). Bless Knit Picks!
Because the pattern is only a little complex to work out, and consists only of basic stitches I can listen to music while I work (pausing if I get to an intricate bit that needs re-counting).
I rediscovered my Mary Jane Lamond cd Lan Duil. As it is in Gaelic (which I don't speak), it impinges less on my concentration, almost like listening to celtic chant. I love her voice, and I love this music. It is perfect for knitting today.
Here is a youtube video of her music you might enjoy:
