I just want to know if other knitters watch NCIS (my favorite show), and if anyone noticed the knitting needle used in a murder this week. It looks like a Susan Bates Crystalite, maybe size 8? Many years ago I read a short story where a knitting needle was used to stop a criminal, and have been looking every since for references to knitters in the background of movies and TV.
I never miss NCIS. I didn't recognize the brand, as I stopped using single-point needles years ago. I think it was bigger than an 8.
I wondered at the time how a needle that large could fit between two vertebrae. In real life, I think one would need a steel size 3 - 4 to do the job, but of course the bigger one looks so much more impressive on camera.
