Knitters, crocheters, and fiber artists alike ultimately develop something called “yarndar.” As the name suggests, “yarndar” is a special type of radar which activates when a fiber artist is close to a handmade item constructed with yarn. We have become innately tuned to notice handmade hats, scarves, and sweaters both in the real world (e.g., the grocery store) and in fictional ones (e.g., movies and television) from miles away.
As those of you who have yarndar know, small rushes of joy and excitement take over when in the presence of hand knitted and crocheted items in the wild. I’m not sure when this rush of excitement started manifesting itself, but it’s so refreshing to see complete strangers who are (or know) fiber artists that share your same passion for yarn and creativity.
As I’m not one to sneak photos of complete strangers and their hand-crafted attire in public (hello, creepy!), I started a list of crocheted items which appear in movies and television. I still keep this list going, so stay tuned for a sequel to this blog!
