I noticed the other day that I have quite a stash of "famous knitter" photos, so here they all are in that wonderful odd-coupling you sometimes get with an otherwise random bunch of people connected only by one thing. First is Catherine Zeta-Jones, with some super chunky needles.
Barbara Bel Geddes, on the set of "Five Branded Women" in 1959.
Gina Lollobrigida. I can't decide if the grimace is because of her knitting or from trying to balance that thing on her head.
Ingrid Bergman, twice.
Kirsten Flagstad again, in her dressing room, 1936. (Why are the two Scandinavians here twice? I don't know!)
Queen Victoria, crocheting.
Sarah Jessica Parker.
Sophia Loren -- the only actress here not knitting on set. (Wonder if she knitted those tights?!)
