I remember when Norway’s Slow TV brought TV viewers in that nation hours of knitting, along with programs showing a train rolling down track for seven hours and a 24-hour broadcast of salmon fishing.
Now 11 of these programs have been released on Netflix in the United States, and three of them are knitting-related.
I guess non-knitters find it relaxing somehow to watch other people knit? As a knitter I think seeing different techniques would be fun for a while, but not for hours on end.
What do you think? Would you watch knitting TV? Have you seen it? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
