Netflix and KNIT

We’ve all heard the saying, Netflix and Chill. However most people are not doing the ‘chill’ part when binge watching the latest Drama or Documentary series. (For those not familiar - the ‘chill’ part is mostly for the Tinder daters haha)

For many, watching these 8 hours of TV can create some kind of guilt for not using our time productively - HELLO KNITTING!

12 Ideas, 12 Days.png

Knitting simple projects can be a great supplementary activity to do while you watch TV.

Even for beginners if you are knitting a scarf or small project with a simple pattern you can easily do both. Of course unlike other TV there is a pause button. You are able to stop whenever you like and you don’t miss a thing when checking your knitting.

I still have trouble with sub-titled programs which require me to look at the screen the whole time, but regular programs are great.

The What Jane Knits projects are perfect Netflix and Knit kits!

Super simple kits include:

The WJK Baby Poncho

Handwarmer Kit

Alpaca Slouch Beanie

In fact I should start measuring how long to knit each project based on how many episodes of a series it takes to complete.

My recent viewing history has been:

  • FYRE documentary - what a disaster… and still they tried to bluff their way through!

  • Seven Seconds - old series but great police drama

  • 7 Days Out - I’ve viewed the episode on Channel Paris Fashion Show and my favourite the 11 Madison Park restaurant relaunch - fascinating!

  • Ellen DeGeneres at 60yo in her stand up show Relatable. So funny and clever.

So remove your TV viewing guilt and get knitting while you check out your latest Netflix programs.

Note: Any viewing recommendations are welcome!
