001: chapters 1-4 - Pride and Prejudice

Well, here we are!I wanted to welcome you all to CraftLit, a Podcast for Crafters. I imagine you’re here because you like to work with your hands, but you also like to read. If so, this is the place for you! Our program will follow a similar pattern every week. After some introductory comments, a web, magazine, or book review (This week ), and perhaps a song, I will include a chapter or two from a book. We will listen to that book until we’re done with it. And because I’m a former English teacher, I’ll give you some things to listen for in the chapters we hear--just to give you something else to do while you’re knitting, spinning, crocheting, weaving, or sewing. Any painters?So.Get comfortable. Find your tools. Check the volume, and enjoy, with me, the beginning (chs 1–4) of by Jane Austen, recorded by Annie Coleman.Intro music: “by Joshua Christian of Syracuse, NY. I found the music on GarageBand.com.
