Boys Fishing Trip Preparation

In one week, I'll be traveling to Michigan for the 14th annual "boys fishing trip."
I'm the youngest of 12 children (7 girls & 5 boys) and I like all of my siblings. This tradition of the boys fishing trip happened when my sister-in-law surprised my brother with all the boys and dad going fishing together. The first two years, I actually went out on the boat to fish. I'm not a fisherman. So I spend time knitting, chatting with my brothers and listening to music. My iPod comes in handy for the traveling.

My iPod is 60GB and has 8649 songs, 16 video, and 955 photos. I lied. It's quite full. I just listened to some podcasts so there is 1.2GB available. I'm sure I'll be able to add some more stuff. No, I don't listen to the music all the time. I enjoy the company of my brothers and we do talk and laugh and remember fun times growing up.

What do you listen to while you knit? Comment away!

I've posted about the previous "fishing" trips on the blog. There are lots of photos on the flickr account. On a sadder note, this will be the first trip without my brother John. We will miss him.

and yes, there will be a burn pile for me. It's cathartic to build fires.

Ok, I'm jealous that your ipod is twice as big as mine :D but yeah, knitting and ipods = awesome. I like to listen to podcasts or audiobooks while I knit. Music is for cleaning!

Have a great trip and take some pictures for us!

I love my ipod for knitting too, like Nicole, mostly podcasts and audiobooks for knitting time, unless it's lace, then I switch to quiet music.

I only have a 1G iPod, but I usually have a book on it if I"ll be knitting. If I update often, I can put part or all of a book on, as needed, and still have some music.

Also, I like to listen to songs I'm trying to learn to play or sing.
