We typically focus on podcasts for our Knit to This feature, but I’m deep into an audiobook series that has me enraptured.
I’ve been transported to southern Italy recently with the storytelling of Elena Ferrante. It is the best kind of thing to listen to while knitting—a tangled tale of two girls growing up smart in a poor neighborhood in Naples. Both aspire to be writers. How’s that going to turn out? It will take four novels to find out, apparently.
If you haven’t ever listened to an audiobook, well, this would be a good place to start. There are four novels in the series, and I finished the first one, My Brilliant Friend, while traveling last month. I’m almost finished with the second one, The Story of a New Name. Next up will be Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay and finally, The Story of the Lost Child.

Actually, we make a pile of nickels.
The narrator, Hillary Huber, makes it all a bit of a trance. She’s awfully good.
