Wayne's World 2 was just on.  I noticed the couch that Garth sits on, it looks like there is a crocheted afghan/blanket draped over the back of the couch.  It looked like multi hexagon shaped motifs in solid colors stitched together.
When i saw it, I remembered this thread and had to post.

Debbie Macomber wrote two books, one title The Shop on Blossom Street and I forget the other title. The sister of the lead character, who owns a yarn shop, is a crocheter. Smiley Both are very sweet and heartwarming books!

i was watching an old Seinfeld rerun tonight (the TV Guide/Coffee Table book/Al Roker/"Indian giver" episode), and near the end, George Kastanza's father is sitting in an armchair and there's a ripple afghan behind him. i can't believe i never noticed it before lol.

I know this has not much to do with the subject of this thread, but I really wanted to share the information but I don't know where. Well, I went to Alcatraz at the other day and inside one of the cells they put together some objects that the prisioners used to have. So there's a radio, some books, a mirror, a harmonica and... A crochet hook! I was listening to the guided tour (it's like a MP3 player that you rent to learn more about the history of the place) and an ex-prisioner tells that he taught others how to crochet, and he says how funny it was to see a big bad guy peacefully crocheting a blanket or something. I was so excited! Isn't that awesome?  Cheesy

wow, that makes me totally wonder, i wonder if you can crochet in prison these days? i mean, with all the clever ways an inmate could damage another person with a crochet hook (Crochet be deadly, Arggh!)...

Cool thread!
There is a movie released in the last couple of months with Julianne Moore in it called "The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio" about a lady who help support her family by writing jingles in the 50s (based on a true story) There are several scenes in the living room that show a faded green crochet afghan - the reason I know it's crochet?  I made it!!!  My 5 seconds of fame LOL - It's shown with the kids having it around their legs watching TV and folded on the back of the couch during a scene where Julianne Moore's character is being interviewed for one of her jingles
This movie was filmed in parts in the city where I used to live

In the movie "The Turning Point" with Anne Bancroft and Shirley MacLaine, there is a scene where Shirley MacLaine is sitting on her bed talking with her husband (Tom Skerritt) and she is crocheting something.  Later in the movie she is walking to the dance studio and she is carrying a crocheted purse.   Smiley

on the show Mama's Family they showed her crocheting a few times.   Smiley  ( i used to watch it every morning while getting ready for school...but now i don't have to get up the same time, so i guess i won't be seeing it as much)

My son was the first to point out Mama and Iola crocheting and from looking at it, I think she really was corcheting. Unlike some TV shows or movies were you can tell they are totally faking it.
I was also watching Drake and Josh and the little sister (I cant think of her name) was supposedly knitting but you could tell the blanket on her lap was obviously crocheted.

Anywho, another funny yarn related scene was in "We Hot American Summer" (if you have not seen this movie, it is the funniest movie ever made, has the guys from The State, Michael Ian Black, Janine Garafello), there is scene where she is knitting a blanket and just started it and then like 5 seconds later someone else comes by and asks her something and the blanket it done. Very funny.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned "Sweet November" yet I was in love with everything she wore in that movie.

and
I watched Batman Begins last night. The scene where Katie Holmes sees Scarecrow's goons dumping the drugs into the water system one of the bad guys is wearing a brown beanie done in dc
