On a board I used to be on, we call this necroposting. Raising a thread from the dead!

However, check out Yoko Ono in this clip. Yes, I promise it's on topic!

I can't believe no one mentioned Hooked on Murder: A Crochet Mystery.  I can't remember the authors name.  But I always mean to pick up this book and forget!

In Amelie, in one scene where Babette is making goo goo eyes at Joseph (i think that's the right guy's name) she's holding a shawl that she's crocheting. (she never actually crochets though.) she wears crocheted shawls during most of the movie.

She does crochet! Yes, she wears a couple of crocheted shawls, but the scene AFTER their *ahem* amorous liaison in the toilet, she's making goo goo eyes at him and crocheting something in a medium blue colour. He then reads out the article about the five year old boy who rides his tricycle out into the countryside to look at the stars. I watched it again over the weekend!

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

In the three-episode British program All Passion Spent, the main character was crocheting briefly in the second episode. In the first episode she was winding yarn and seemed to be knitting at one point, and in the third episode she was holding some sort of yarn work in her lap.

I'm always pointing out stuff like this in movies, but can never remember it later...

I do remember reading this book a long time ago (when I was in Jr. High, I think), called Don't You Dare Read This, Mrs. Dunphrey. Its about this girl whose mom walks out on her and her little brother, leaving them on their own. One of her teachers makes her write in a journal every day, but if she put "don't read this" on the top of each entry, the teacher wouldn't read it. One entry she talks about how her grandma had taught her how to crochet when she was little, and she had an unfinished afghan thrown in the back of her closet, and sometimes at night, she would lie awake, with her fingers going through the motions of crocheting.

Crochet has now gotten into the gaming realm.



Yup. I looted crochet gloves in World of Warcraft. And my first thought was "OMG, must screenshot and see if anyone posted it before me in this thread!"

Huh, go figure. I've known of the knitted lowbie stuff available from vendors for quite a while (Ashenvale vendors) but I have never seen a crocheted item, you win!

I got them while doing the starter DK quests. I didn't get them on Blackhand (my main char), but I got them on Shadow Council.

I've not actually watched the movie of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, because I assumed it wouldn't be good, but I saw a clip from it last week and the grandmother was crocheting as she talked to her daughter and grandchildren--a lot more talk than crochet, admittedly. I don't remember if there was any crochet in the book or not, but if you're looking for something to read, I find it's one of those books that has popped into my thoughts surprisingly often over the twenty-five or so years since I've read it.
