Knitting in Movies and TV
Someone has been gathering information on knitting scenes in movies and tv! http://angelhairyarn.com/movies.html

Wouldn't it be fun to watch some of those scenes?

I've been looking for a copy of the film "Mr.Lucky" with Cary Grant. Theres supposed to be this whole scene of him learning to knit that is hilarious. Then later in the film he is seen knitting while talking to someone nd he goes "wait a minute I dropped a stitch" and then you see him knitting in taxis and stuff. Has anyone seen this movie? It's not on Netflix and my local library doesn't have it.

I haven't seen Mr. Lucky. I'd like to see CG knit though. Scarecrow Video has this title, so it might be the right one (Seattle, they have everything). It looks like this was only put out on video in the 90's (no dvd), so it might be tough to find a copy. Chances might be better finding a revival screening at an old theatre or on cable tv

I was all excited when I started reading it, then I realized that it lists the stars of the movies on some, not who knits! (Can you imagine Tom Hanks knitting?)

I want to go back and watch some of these so I can watch the knitting. I just started knitting in February so I wouldn't have ever noticed it when I watched them the first time.

Exactly. I've seen some of those before too, but it was before I was a knitter. If I saw them for the first time now, I would be all...."OMG! They're knitting!!!!!!"

I don't know if anyone saw this but Gray's Anatomy had a pretty funny knitting episode last season. I can't usually stay up to see it so I can't remember who the character was but she had taken up knitting to help curb her sex addiction. I found it quite amusing.

I can't get the list to open so I can't check, but I just saw a commercial for an arthritis med (advil? Aleve?) that the woman was a knitter & said she wasn't willing to give up knitting because of arthritis. I thought that was cool!!! In fact she said "I'm a baby boomer and I intend to go out fighting and knitting." rofl
