Kinda geeky

A couple of months ago Philip told me about this commercial for a mini-series he saw on the Sci-Fi channel. The series is called the Tin Man and it is loosely based on L. Frank Baum's books which I love. Immediately I tried to find out when it would be playing, but I guess I missed the show's running and the next and only airing listed was on March 9. This was back in early January so March 9 seemed like an eternity away, but now it is March and the 9th is on Sunday. The three-part series is going to air back to back so Philip and I will be hunkered down in front of the TV for a solid six hours. We have already planned to make pizza's that day to take care of our food needs, but I need a mindless knitting project for the event. My current project is a lace shawl for the store, but it is quiet time knitting and does not qualify for a day of tv viewing. What are your favorite mindless or general tv knitting projects? If nothing else I am thinking either a pair of long armwarmers or some socks with the snazzy sock yarn I received for Christmas or maybe I should make armwarmers with the sock yarn. Your opinions please.

Socks of course. I also found the big Harry Potter scarves to be excellent mindless knitting.

I vote socks also. They're perfect for TV watching.

Thanks for letting me know Tin Man is replaying. I've been trying to catch it since January, too. I guess I'll be sock knitting along with you in spirit as I hunker down in front of my TV too!

I love TinMan and have watched it in pieces since it played the first time. I've seen the whole thing. It's awesome. Now maybe I will see it in the proper order!

Tin Man was sooo awesome... you'll definitely love it! I finished a hat and scarf while watching it. :) Can't wait to hear your opinion after you've seen it!

Oh, what a fabulous idea! I'll have to plan a knitting project and sit down and watch the series from start to finish, too (I saw the first one, but never quite made it through the rest). Luckily there's always a project or two waiting to be picked up.

Oooh that sounds really cool. I wonder if they will release it to DVD? Must go check Netflix....
