The gentle nibble of the knitting bug started for a new generation I firmly believe when news came out that Lyle Lovett’s then intended Julia, loved to knit for him and often cast members while filming. One of many Hollywood’s A-list Celebs who have been caught in the relaxing twix of stix. Dakota Fanning, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristen Davis, Tim Daly, Aubrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe (who was an avid Aran sweater girl) and many others who love to feel yarn slide through their fingers and have jumped on board for Charity Fundraising events.
Julia however is the queen bee when it comes to Hollywood Needles. Tom Hanks knowing she loves this down time activity in between takes and being the prankster that he is got a whole team involved to get her goat!
