What to “Watch” While Crafting

I think it’s a sign of the times that silence is uncomfortable to many people. Most of us are trained multi-taskers who are used to constant bombardment with communication in various forms. I know this is true for me. It’s rare that I can sit in silence, focused on a craft project.

TV Crafting

This leads to turning on the TV for “background noise,” occasionally picking up bits of the plot of whatever show or movie happens to be on. More often than not, I simply switch to Netflix to watch a marathon of a TV show I have already watched and love. That way, I won’t have to worry about missing out on anything if I’m not paying close attention – I already know what happens. Among my favorites for this purpose: How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Sports Night, and my beloved Downton Abbey. (Oh Downton Abbey, why must I wait until January for the next series? WHY?!?)

I’m always open to new suggestions, though. Do you have any go-to shows that you can “half-watch” while crafting?

  1. Hi! I make crafts while half-watching older episodes of The Big Bang Theory or marathoning on Netflix (The West Wing, The Wonder Years, or Everybody Loves Raymond).

    BTW, I don’t want to wait until January for Downton Abbey either. The fourth season is already available in the DVD set, so they should just show it already!
