Foul Play

Chevy Chase, Goldie Hawn - the time is 1978, the place SanFrancisco.
What does this have to do with Knitting? One of those great Movie Lines...

Goldie Hawn plays a librarian (stop chuckling)who becomes involved in a deadly conspiracy. (Okay chuckle). The scene leading to great knitting is thus:

Dark evening, Goldie Hawn comes back to her apartment - you know the same apartment every movie in SanFran is filmed in - and as she comes into the living room...She is Attacked! Much thrashing and wrestling ensues, with the Attacker finally being pierced fatally with a pair of alumininum knitting needles.

Goldie runs to the kitchen (for the whippersnappers out there...phones used to be mounted on the wall in the kitchen-for convenience) calls the police station (pre 911) and gasps "I just killed a man with the needles!" The bored cop replies "Narcotics?" and she says "No, Knitting!"

So, despite a truely poopy week, at least I was not attacked in my living room its a good thing too because I only packed circulars on this trip.
