This week's challenge for the 52 Week Crochet Challenge hosted by Red Berry Crochet is to name movies or TV shows that show someone crocheting or show a crocheted item.
After racking my brain, I could only think of one time I've seen crochet in a movie or on TV. I've seen several afghans and crocheted clothing items on That 70's Show.
But, of course, I knew that couldn't be it, so I went to good old Google. Then I spent the next 10 minutes saying, "Oh, yeah! I forgot about that!" or "Really? I've seen that a thousand times. How'd I miss that?"
So, here are a couple of crochet things I've seen on TV and in movies and apparently forgotten:
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets- Molly Weasley's sweater sleeves
The Smurfs- granny square afghan on the couch
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- the grandmother is crocheting
Roseanne- afghan on the couch and some sweaters
I also found a good forum discussion on Crochetville; this lists dozens of references to crochet in movies and on TV.
And here's a section of posts from CrocheTime titled As Seen On TV.
And another good list from Crochet Concupiscence.
Crochet is everywhere :-)
What's your favorite crocheted item you've seen on TV or in a movie?
Thanks for reading.
