haha, glad to know i wasn't the only one who got all teary eyed. i'm such a sucker for this show!!
i loved that meredith looked like she was actually trying to knit too, and how izzy actually looked like she knits all the time. makes me wonder if the actress who plays izzy knew how to knit before this show.. haha, i just liked the fact that meredith was knitting with like the throwing method, even though the yarn was in her left hand. hehe, so sad.. i still look like that when i knit  Tongue but it gets the job done!

Ah, I was CRACKING UP during "Grey's Anatomy"! I actually didn't think the sweater Izzy gave Denny was actually one she knit, she kind of rolled her eyes when she gave it to him, I think it was just one she bought.

Anyway, it made me so happy to see them knitting, even if Mer was doing it so badly. Haha.

i was randomly wondering is someone had a thread about grey's.... i was knitting during the show so it was pretty funny to see the characters doing the same. Smiley
even though i'm a fairly new knitter, i also noticed that meredith had the yarn in the wrong hand for the method she was using. she either didn't know or was doing it to act like she didn't know how to do it.

Bingo! That's what was bothering me about her knitting! I couldn't place it until you said that. Now I understand why it looked so weird to me! Sigh of relief.

The way she was holding her yarn and throwing is how my friend (a new-ish knitter) does.  She says her mom taught her that way and it's some norwegian/scandanavian thing...  whether that's the case or not, i don't know.  It always looks so awkward to me but she gets good results, so...  I always tell her, "If you are producing a knit stitch and you are happy with how it looks, then you are not doing it wrong."

They were both using fairly big needles, so, theoretically an intermediate/fast knitter could produce a man's plain sweater in a day, but, Izzy must have some other responsibilities in the hospital, right?  And, where was her pattern?  And, where were her knitting supplies?

(is this what trekkies/trekkers or whatever they want to be called go through when there is something improbable in an episode?)

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

LOL... this makes me think of my trekkie mom!

Can you really make a sweater in 24hrs? I would love to see that pattern....

I think it would be possible in the right conditions.  I've knit all of the pieces of a cardigan on US10.5's over about 36 hours one weekend when I was sick.  I knit a raglan sleeved all in the round sweater in a few evenings (on US 10s).  I think you could do it.

i totally thought of this thread while watching grey's last night.
It wouldn't even be a 24 hour sweater, more like an 8 hour sweater, as she probably doesn't work 24 hours in a row. (or maybe up to 12 hours, who knows about those crazy doctors)

Plus her needing to do her job. I'm saying that the public's misconceptions about knitting strikes again.

My mom definitely laughed at me because I was knitting while watching the show as well.

definitely less than 24 hrs since she wore the completed sweater for 3 hrs so it would smell like her Smiley i'm so sad that it's going to be another 3 weeks until the next new episode

i almost forgot about that part! Smiley i think i was trying to calculate it in my head at that point, along with you all.

true. if it looks knit, don't knock it. Smiley
