I'm not much of a tv-watcher, but I am a bit of a crocheter. And the two go together very well. To me, watching tv is a passive thing to do. In fact, it's not really "doing" anything, just sitting and watching. Watching doesn't really take any brain power. Anyone can do it. So, having the attention-span of a gnat, I get bored watching tv which is why crochet goes with it so well for me. It gives me something to do with my hands and to focus on while I am passively listening to shows on tv. It makes my time productive which results in things like this bonnet and booties.
Do you like to keep your hands busy while watching tv?
What do you like to work on in your free time?
This is the pattern I used for the bonnet: http://www.how-to-crochet-instructions.com/crochet-baby-bonnet.html
