Matt and I have been watching an episode (or three) of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine almost every night this winter via Netflix, and we're finally almost through the entire series. When we started watching it, I didn't think it was nearly as good as The Next Generation or Voyager, but the show really picked up for me around season three or four, and I've been glued ever since.
Funny thing is, the more I like a show, the more I gravitate toward simpler projects that call for flat garter stitch, or stockinette in the round. I don't think this is a coincidence, either. I want to be able to work on something - anything! - but I also don't want to pay that much attention to what my hands are doing. That's why I often choose to knit the same project twice in a row. After I've finished something once, it's a lot easier the second time around, and requires hardly any effort at all.
Anyway, over the past two weeks, I've finished four hats (two of which were gift knits), and almost two pairs of wrist warmers. My current knitting project should be finished around the same time we're watching the series finale, either tonight or tomorrow, and then I think it's time for a long break from the tv. While I enjoy our nightly shows during the winter, the weather is starting to warm up around here, so I'm craving a change in routine.
