So what do you do while your knitting??
Do you watch TV?

Listen to music?

Just curious what everyone else does while they are knitting...

For me. it depends on what I am watching. If its something like the news or something I don't have to "watch" I will knit. If I am really into a show, knit on commercial breaks

I like to have the TV on when I knit. I never stop--knitting had first priority--sometimes I don't know what the main characters look like if I'm doing a complicated pattern. :rollseyes: I've had to give up subtitled movies, though.

I also like to knit at work if we have a meeting--I really do concentrate on what's being said better if I have something going in my hands.

I sometimes listen to music during the day while I knit unless there is something interesting on Oprah or Martha. At night the TV is on.

During the day, I have the radio on. At night, the TV is usually on. Sometimes, it's just nice to knit in the quiet house, though!! That opportunity doesn't come up very often though.........

oh my...lol...okay...

I knit at the movies,
I knit in the drive through,
I knit at stop lights ,
I knit standing in line at the store,
I knit while other people are driving,
I knit in training sessions,
I knit in bed,
I knit while watching TV.

and that is probably the order in which i do them the most often...lol. sadly i am rarely at home as i start my first job at 7:30am and get home from my second job at 9:30pm. soooo i have to sneak a few stitches in whenever i can!

TV mostly. During the day, I put the tv on a music choice channel of some sort, and the type depends on my mood. I have noticed that I can knit at a pretty quick clip if I knit while listening to Metal Mania on VH1Classic

At night, regular TV.

We don't do TV - got rid of cable, don't have an antenna, but we do watch the occasional DVD and I always knit during those.

I watch my kids play while I knit (though they frequently make it impossible for me).

I knit between sets of weight-lifting (in little one-minute increments, wearing weight-lifting gloves, no less, but hey, whatever it takes to feed my addiction).

I knit in the car while dh drives (so far have resisted the urge while I'm driving).

I knit during meetings or sometimes at social gatherings (if it's just a group of women hanging out having coffee - not like a major Christmas party or anything! )

But honestly, my favorite thing to do while knitting is nothing else. I like to get up early before anyone else is awake, and sit in my recliner with a cup of coffee, and enjoy the silence while I knit.
