knitting in the movies!
I just went to see the Hitchhikers Guide movie...very funny, and there was a scene where all of the characters turned into knitted dolls! The main character even threw up some lovely self-striping yarn.

Also noticed that Lily Tomlin was knitting in I Huckabees, sort of. Didn't look like she was actually knitting though.

I'm wondering if I'm just now noticing things like this since I took up knitting, or if there have always been so many instances of knitting in movies! Kinda cool, I thought.

i like to knit during films and while watching TV, it makes me feel prodcutive rather than a goggle eyed slug.

I just read that the elusive Goggle Eyed Slug was placed on the Endangered Species list. Tsk tsk. Very sad.

Me too! I still don't know how you ladies can DO that! I get so focused on the movie that if my DH even so much as sniffles I'm ready to chop his head off!

Heh heh...yeah, I guess my subject wasn't very specific. I can knit when I'm watching movies at home, but I'm not sure about the theater. Too dark for me.

Hey Mer I got this new knitting book Weekend KNitting which has some rather silly articles between the patterns (one tells you HOW to eat a boiled egg.... duh)

but on one page they list movies where there is knitting. The only one I can remember right now because it struck me funny was
9 1/2 Weeks with Kim Basinger. Can you imagine? It was 9 1/2 weeks of sex with Mickey Rourke and they list the movie coz her roomate knitted sometimes.

weird

Funny...I think I am getting that book for my birthday next week! At least that is the hint I gave DH, so I assume that's the case. :D

KellyK, I know that has to be some kind of joke, but you have me baffled. Just in case, I googled "Goggle Eyed Slug"...

I DON'T recommend searching for Goggle Eyed Slug! (At least not while at work. Or around kids, or other folks that might be offended by bare breasted ladies.) LOL.

Um, uh, what were we talking about again?
