Ever heard of the KNIFTA’S? We hadn’t either, until we decided to do a little research in honor of this year’s theme at the TNNA in Ohio: “Lights, Camera, Action!” Knitting in movies, film and television doesn’t get much recognition, but at iknit.org.uk, they honor and award the best scenes in film and television! We love it! And we think you will, too.
KNITFA, kind of like the BAFTA’s, stands for Knitting in Film and Television Awards.
One of their winners, (and a personal favorite), for Funniest knitting/crochet scene is Jack McBrayer in 30 Rock. Hilarious. Wonder if he’ll be wearing that later?!
More Knitting in Movies
Some other movies we had forgotten about until now, that include knitting scenes, are listed below:
Wallace & Gromit
We love that Gromit knits, instead of talking. Must help with the frustration of having a daft owner while being so clever! He always looks so suspicious…
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Of course, this is with the beautiful Audrey Hepburn, where she says, “I have a strange feeling that the blueprints and my knitting instructions got switched. It’s not impossible I’m knitting a ranch house.” When impossible instructions meet the beginner knitter, disaster is about to ensue. Or be hilarious. Or both.
What about you?
In light of all of this movie talk, we’d love to know, what’s your favorite movie? (doesn’t have to include knitting in movies! 🙂
