I can knit without looking, even hold a conversation with someone, keeping normal eye contact, while knitting on autopilot.
I dunno...for some reason I really like to watch the knitting, and the fabric unfolding ect. I'm all about the process.

I'm working on Knitty's Clapotis for my sister and since there are a lot of really straight-forward repeats and I've done this project before, most of it has been knitted while watching TV. I must confess I've been watching re-runs of "The Hills" while knitting it. Am I the only person who thinks Spencer is a jerk? Anyway, I'm also working on Knitty's Cherie Amour, which has a lace pattern and I've found I can listen to the TV, but I really have to pay attention to what I'm doing knitting-wise.

I just started wicked from zephyrstyle.com and i can do most of it without looking. 2x2 rib, but not the crossovers(which, btw, are kind of cool and kind of annoying, but i like how they look.)

I can do 2x2 ribbing in my sleep.  I have knit so many 2x2 ribbed socks that I can do it without looking (except for the obvious parts, like heel turn, kitchener stitch, etc.).  garter stitch also works great for tv watching and stockingette as well.

I can do 2x2 ribbing, flat garter, and stockinette in the round without looking.  This summer, I ended up watching all three Blade movies in a row without looking  Cheesy  If I knit stitch patterns that I'm not used to, or ones with an odd(not like, odd even, but like quirky odd) number of stitches/pattern repeats, I have to divide my attention.

I think it's just a matter of practice.  I'm knitting constantly (morning,bus,school,bus,home,etc) so I'm used to multitasking with it.
