Modern Knitting….a new spin on an old craft!

Top 3 TV to knit to

A few posts ago, I talked about how to fit yarn bombing into your everyday activities. I mentioned that while watching television is a great time to knit or crochet.

Well, some shows are easier to work to than others, and I’m ready to share them with you.

1. Cooking Shows
You don’t have to watch every second to know what’s happening. If you have to look at your work for a bit you can, while still listening to what’s going on.

What to watch
Chopped. Four chefs compete to win $10,000. Each episode is one story, so there’s nothing to catch up on and not much to remember. Also there are three rounds: appetizer, main course and dessert. If you miss one segment you still have the others. This show is pretty entertaining not just because of the cooking but also because they use weird ingredients in the mandatory baskets.

2. Reruns
Reruns of your favorite shows are fantastic to watch while working on your next yarnbomb. You already know what’s going to happen, and if you’re like me, you could quote it line by line. If you’re working on something more difficult you can give your attention to it and still have the background sound of your favorite show to trigger your memory to what is going on visually.

What to watch
Your favorite show!!! Some good ones are The Simpsons, Friends, The Office, and really whatever you connect with.

3. Your Guilty Pleasure Show
This is the show you watch that you realize probably isn’t the best, but you just have to know what happens. During this show you can make up for your lost time by doing something productive! If you use your guilty pleasure TV time as your working time, you will feel better about watching it.

What to watch
If you don’t have a guilty pleasure show then … maybe you’re lucky. Just make sure you really do enjoy the show and you’re not just watching it to feel upset afterwards.

NOTE: You can watch a lot of shows on and on the network sites. If you watch them this way, you can pause, rewind or fast-forward—or if you have a DVR you can just use that. This way, if anything happens with your project, you can just pause.

I’d love to hear what your favorite shows are to work to, and may even add them to my knitting TV time, so feel free to comment.

Happy Yarnbombing!
