Knit a Vinyl Record – Get the FREE Pattern

Knit a Vinyl Record – Get the FREE Pattern

My first 45 was Leo Sayer’s “When I Need You“. I played it over and over and over again … drove my mother absolutely bonkers, I’m sure. It was her fault though, she gave it to me! The first record I saved up for and bought myself was “Rio” by Duran Duran … by 1984 I was the biggest Duranimal out there …

If you’re like me, you may be feeling a bit nostalgic for the 80s, so why not knit a record?

Knit a Vinyl Record

Knit a Vinyl Record

Are you old enough to have had a “first record”?

2016-04-22-05.39.34b* I received a 1byone Belt-Drive 3-Speed Portable Stereo Turntable in exchange for writing a review on the blog. This post contains affiliate links.

This is a solid novelty record player that’s great for people who wish to keep their vinyl collection alive or start a new one. It would work well for a parent who wants to teach their kids about records, for a student who wants a few records in their dorm room, or for playing records during a dinner party – i.e. it’s for personal listening and definitely not for audiophiles. Although perfectly adequate, the built-in speakers are not what you would call amazing. It’s very small and extremely portable. I love the fact that you can also use it as speakers for a music device like an ipod – this makes it a great party accessory. Please note, I received this product at a discount for the purpose of providing an honest and unbiased review.
