I like it when knitting shows up in movies and on tv. I was recently very pleasantly surprised to see knitting on one of the new fall tv shows that I enjoy, Pushing Daisies,* has character that knits when nervous. Emerson Cod, the PI, starts knitting in the second episode in response to the dead girl being not dead anymore.
I quite enjoy the super cuteness of this show. Especially when they add fun character traits like knitting. The best part was having a knitting partner without needing to leave the house.
* An ABC show that airs on CTV here in Canadia.
