OK last night for the first time I mixed these two activities. Watching a movie and knitting. My socks are still not finished and so that is what I was working on I am fairly sure that if I can master this skill of knitting and watching TV that I will be able to finish some more of my projects. This may also not help at all because I really don't watch that much TV.
I may try it again on Wed. or perhaps I will bring my knitting to my condo association meeting.
