Brenda Dayne from cast-on had a small segment of one of her podcasts about Sweater Porn. She didn't have to give a definition for me to immediately know what it is, but here is the definition anyway, as best I remember. Sweater porn is where you are watching a show or movie and the designer has included some kind of knitted item that is so amazing that it actually distracts you from what you are trying to watch. She mentioned season 2 of Miss Marple (which is available from Netflix, hurray!) but I could think of a list a mile long. Harry Potter, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Wonderfalls, and so on and on...
SO I knew this HAD to be a community all to itself. So if you have a crush on Mark Cohen's simple but clever little sweater on Rent or you are finally catching up with Tivo or Netflix and noticed that Delores from Dead Like Me knits baby booties - post it to this community.
You SHOULD include photos, please please!!!! if its HUGE please put it behind a cut.
Post anything that is a knitting (or other yarn crafts) sighting in pop culture.
Don't post anything that is not a knitting sighting, especially if you are trying to get us to buy your stuff. That's not the point and I will very much delete the post if you do.
