Knitting Out Loud is an audio book company publishing audio recordings of the best of knitting literature. It is the only audiobook company to specialize in knitting including, histories of knitting, essays on knitting and studies of ethnic styles of knitting and other fiber arts.

The best thing about Knitting Out Loud Audio books is that you can listen to them, yes you got it WHILE YOU KNIT.

I was sent two copies to review and I must say they were both quite delightful (mentioned below) but they currently have 6 Audio Books to choose from. I did not get a chance to listen to my review copies while actually knitting though, Instead in my car on my way to and from work. I always found knitting to be relaxing, but now I know listening to people talk about knitting is also relaxing.


A history of hand knitting RRP $29.95- I found this book to be intriguing and very educational, there is no doubt the research has been done to provide you with an in-depth account, both formal and personal of the history of Hand knitting.


The Art Of Fair Isle Knitting – RRP $14.95 – This Audio book discusses the foundations of Fair isle knitting from it’s heritage to it’s modern day transition. It covers the social and political history behind Fair Isle Knitting and almost takes you back to the cold blistery nights spent knitting by the women of the Shetland island, where it all began.


To Celebrate the debut of Knitting Out Loud Audio books we are giving you the chance to win the the review copies above.

    I’d love to win the history of knitting audiobook. Thank you for your consideration. I usually knit with a book on my ears.

    The Art of Fair Isle Knitting book would be a great addition to my knitting reference book collection. Thank you for the info and for holding the drawing.

    As a mom to a DD who has benefitted greatly from audio books, I’m excited that these books are now available. The price is right, actually a bargain. This is just so wonderful. I went to the actual site and DD is thinking about which book she wants me to get her first. If an audio book on knitting can intrigue a sci-fi and mystery fan, then I’ll buy it.

    Hello, Thanks for a fun contest! I would like any of the three, but the historical one I would enjoy the most. Thanks,Cindi

    I would love to win the art of fair isle knitting, but either sound good

  9. Lorri on February 14, 2008 12:31 pm

    What a great way to “read” a book while knitting. I’d love to have a copy of The History of Hand Knitting.

  10. Sharon on February 15, 2008 11:26 am

    The fair isle knitting would be great to have!

  11. Nancy Harrington on February 15, 2008 3:29 pm

    Audio books and knitting — a terrific pair! I’d love to listen to A History of Hand Knitting.

  12. Amy Bourgeois on February 18, 2008 5:03 am

    The History of Knitting would be my first choice, but they both look wonderful!

  13. Deborah on February 22, 2008 12:42 pm

    Hi! I just found your site while searching for some Berroco pattern information. I definitely check it out further. My choice would be the History of Knitting, because I find antique pattern books and needlework tools fascinating. Thanks.

    I like the sound of both of the Knitting Out Loud audio books, but I would love to win a copy of “The Art of Fair Isle Knitting” because it is a technique I have yet to master completely. Maybe hearing some of the history will make me work at it a bit harder.

    as “aDaneInItaly” (on Ravelry) I should be happy to win the “The Art Of Fair Isle Knitting”…. the Fair Isles are a part of Denmark and many patterns were and are still used in Denmark.
    This book would remember me my Grandma (mum’s mum) who taught me to knit more than half a century ago… and who knitted several things to me when I was a child just using some Fair Isle patterns (hats, jumpers, jackes, mittens) – which I don’t have any more but should like to try….
    winning this book it might be the way of trying!
