Celebrity Crocheter: Vicki Lawrence

Click and image for enlargement/slide show…

I just found Mama’s Family airing on MeTV. I used to love this show and still do. From 18:00-19:00 you will now find me in my room, watching while crocheting or knitting.

Imagine my surprise to see Mama (Vicki Lawrence) crocheting. Yay!

I found this picture on Pinterest yesterday. Of course, she is probably in costume, but I would love to be rich enough to crochet in an embroidered smoking jacket with silk pajama pants and the softest sweaters. I can’t image how she is sitting below that skirt, but I wouldn’t even attempt that with my big ol’ stomach.

Morticia Addams…and Lurch

I was watching The Addams Family before I had to leave to work yesterday and discovered another celebrity knitter: Morticia Addams.

While searching for images, I discovered this image of Lurch knitting – perhaps learning how to knit.

As a crocheter, I am disappointed that I do not ever recall seeing someone crochet on television or film. Why is that? I have seen crochet afghans on several couches: The Middle, The Big Bang Theory, Roseanne, Mike & Molly, yet never have I seen someone actually crocheting. Which character made the afghans? A quick Google search revealed possibly two celebrities, but I didn’t recognize them and the pictures were so frikkin’ small I didn’t want to use without proper verification. I did find this and “Yes, Ryan Gosling, you can massage my hands!”
