Crochet & Knitting to Music

Today, I’m sitting here stitching and listening to a great selection of music that a dear friend made for me.  At the same time, I’m stitching on several projects and I find it’s interesting how the different sounds make me want to work on different things.  I’m able to set a pace to my project.  I think about what I’m working on then select music to motivate me.  I wanted to work on something quick, easy & fun so I started making crochet boas with the new “Cosmic” from the Red Heart Boutique line.  I made 6 of them, one in each of the colors.  All it takes is one ball of yarn and about 2 hours, maybe 3, One Ball Loop Scarf.  I had just a little left over yarn, so I put together several fun loopy flower pins, free patterns for Loopy Crochet Flowers.  I’ve also made up 2 knit scarves, again just using one ball of Cosmic yarn for each scarf, free pattern for Knit Just the Thin Scarf.  The music really gets me going.  Tell me, what motivates you to stitch and keep you going?
