Knitting Sighting

Ok, so now that I am a knitter, I get great pleasure in seeing characters knit in movies and on TV. While I am sure there are formal lists of these kinds of sightings, I thought I would share my latest here. We were watching the movie Frida last night and her sister was knitting by her bedside at the hospital following Frida's near fatal bus accident. Although it was only a couple seconds and they never showed a close up of what she was doing - I smiled to myself. Also, very good movie by the way - check it out if you haven't seen it yet!

Great sighting...and such a GREAT movie! Besides the very compelling story of Frida herself, the movie was visually so stunning, and the music was wonderful as well. It's funny that you should mention this topic of movie knitting sitings (MKS), because I was surprised by a movie knitting sighting of my own recently, in one of my favorite movies, no less! Having made no note of it before, I was watching "Breakfast at Tiffany's" again in my AK (After Knitting) era, and was delighted to see Holly Golightly knitting furiously (and holding her needles in a rather interesting way too, by the way). Seeing Audrey Hepburn knit was such a moment of pure joy! Isn't it funny how we are so focused in on this stuff now?
