Needles and spools

Knitting on view in films unspooling now or soon at a theater near you...

Only in the knitting world would I even think to consider this a spoiler, but in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (KNITTING REFERENCE SPOILER) Dumbledore asks if he can keep a magazine of knitting patterns that he finds in a muggle household.

As evidence that Katherine Heigl must be a frumpy stick in the mud--you know, because she totally looks the part--Gerard Butler discovers the knitting in her home in The Ugly Truth. (For those who care, she is not actually seen knitting. The presence of needles and yarn is shorthand for her dowdiness.)

Yeah, Dumbledore's knitting line was actually in the book. I'm glad they put it in the movie. I think it gave props to all the HP knit fans.
