My partner and I gave up our tv when we moved from California to Detroit. Of course we cheated a bit and kept a small 13" set until Michigan went digital in June. Now we're into Hulu.com and Netflix "Watch Instantly". I recommend both services.
As far as knitting goes. I've been working on a Baby Yoda Sweater for my friend's new baby boy, Trent. I'm eager to start a new knitting project but I really want to finish my UFOs before casting on anything. My Lacy Rib Socks are taking forever, it's such an easy pattern but it just won't end. I'd like to cast on a Swallowtail Shawl with one of my Malabrigo Lace skeins. I would also like to cast on for a vest using my 586yds of handspun Polwarth.
