Do you get excited when you have a knitting in pop culture (KIPC) sighting? You know, you're fast forwarding through commercials and suddenly a mom is knitting in the mini-van while waiting out football practice? We get a little thrill when we see something like that.
A couple of weeks ago Becky came in and told us about a KIPC moment she'd had the night before. She was home watching the romantic comedy The Ugly Truth starring Katherine Heigel and Gerard Butler (not a movie she recommends). It's your standard story of gorgeous woman is too controlling and smart to be interesting to men, and a male counterpart is going to teach her how to be more desirable. During one of the "lessons" at her apartment Gerard Butler's character sits down in a rocking chair (!) to wait for the leading lady. He notices something and reaches down...and picks up a beautiful skein of yarn and knitting needles. And rolls his eyes.
Becky's reaction? "Dude, that's Misti Alpaca Chunky! It's a great yarn. Don't roll your eyes at that!!!"
What are some of your favorite, or most memorable KIPC moments?
