I’m still not knitting very much. It doesn’t help that our TV’s remote control, which has been slowly losing one function at a time for the last couple of years, finally died – so now the TV is stuck on CNN. In theory, this would be fine, since I enjoy keeping up with what’s going on in the world, but these days CNN only spends about half an hour a day keeping its viewers apprised of what is going on in the world. The rest of the time, they’re too busy interviewing people who accidentally lock their children in their cars. In the evenings (the evenings Eastern time, meaning around 5 pm my time), they’ve started showing documentaries – The Sixties, Blackfish, something about death row – and every so often they come up with something NEW to say about that racist guy who owns a basketball team. And then there’s this other show where Newt Gingrich just stands around and smirks.
All of this is a long way of telling you that I usually combine my knitting time with TV or movie viewing. I can’t remember the last time I watched TV without knitting. I do sometimes knit when I am not watching TV – but not very often. I don’t know – I’m into reading these days, of course, and I’m also doing a lot of writing. But knitting, not so much.
I do like today’s Yarn Along photo, though. I like the way the camera angle makes my feet look really small compared to the book. Smoke and mirrors, my friends – smoke and mirrors.
