N E T F L I X

yep. an unusual title for a post ... but it is knitting related.

i haven't had cable tv (never have had satellite) in maybe 11 years? there are things i'd like to watch on cable tv, but it's too expensive, and i've found i can live without it. i like lots of different channels, and i don't think they're sold "a la carte". regardless, it's a time suck, and i'm pretty awesome at finding multiple ways to practice avoidance behavior.

i do have Netflix, and it's worth every penny! i love to binge watch tv shows. that sounds unhealthy, right?

right now, i'm watching ALIAS. i never watched it when it was broadcast on regular television. i'd heard of it, but was probably busy doing other things.

the first year i went to SAFF (2007), there was a yarn dyer that sold "tv yarns".

day 1 of SAFF

HEY STUART !!!

see the crazy hot pink & black/gray yarn? ... i knew nothing of the tv show, but liked the colors. it sat in stash forever .....

flash forward, 2013 ... i finally wound a hank into a ball!

and i laughed at myself for loving this yarn for so long, bought with the tv show name alias, and finally, finally, decided to watch this on netflix.
