Movies to knit (or spin) by

The new-hat knitting has been fueled by the discovery that somebody's uploaded a lot more Hitchcock movies to YouTube since the last time I checked.

There's Spellbound, with Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck:

And also, Notorious (also starring Ingrid Bergman but with Cary Grant this time):

And let's not forget Rebecca, my goodness:

I personally enjoy The 39 Steps in both movie and book form:

Not to mention The Lady Vanishes, which is one of my very favourites - love love love it:

Or perhaps you would prefer Jamaica Inn, which I've read but never actually seen (but will shortly, now that I'm committed to a second new hat pattern this month, yay!):

And there are many many more, if you search on "Hitchcock Full Movie."

If you are sneaking in some crafty time after everybody else is in bed and you have to be very quiet, Hitchcock made a lot of silent films too.  You can turn off the volume and skip the musical accompaniment, and no one will be the wiser. 

I like The Farmer's Wife,

and I look forward to watching The Lodger (it gets pretty good reviews):

and also I'm pretty sure I've seen The Manxman in a theatre where the scale of the seascapes was impressive.  If I'm right, the story is incredibly moving as well.

And that probably enough company for a whole weekend of knitting!

Hope you have a terrific time whatever you end up doing - for the first time in ages I'll be knitting nonstop, huzzah - and I'll see you again on Monday.
