Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon-Knitter's Version

I live in NYC and, let’s face it, we New Yorkers think we’re superstars. And since we’re *all* stars, many celebs live here because they can blend in and they're ignored.

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick live in my neighborhood. It’s no big deal. Why not live here? We see them around usually with a kid or dog in tow and they do things that every other New Yorker does. They go to the dry cleaners, buy deli at Zabar’s, take their kids to school.

The other day, I was waiting for a bus and I noticed a man walking with a bike. Briefly wondered why he was walking it and not riding it.

Then I zoomed in on the very attractive scarf he was wearing. Black and white tweedy-looking and it appeared to be hand-knit. It was tucked into a black denim jacket and I was just about to move a few steps closer as he walked past me so I could get a better look at the scarf—when---OH, NO, NO, NO!

Being a proper New Yorker, I not only averted my eyes, I also turned fully around so I wasn’t even facing him. Must-not-gawk-at-Kevin-Bacon—even if he’s wearing what appears to be an interesting hand knit.

But anybody reading this blog can now play the Knitter's Version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. "I read the knitting blog of a woman who saw Kevin Bacon who appeared in Footloose with Sarah Jessica Parker who is a knitter."

What other knitters has Kevin Bacon been in movies with? Who are other celeb knitters? Can we somehow connect them all to Kevin Bacon?

Didn't realize there was such a big knitting community in the big apple! Looks like those St. Paddy's Day socks are still in progress. Better get off those games and get back to knitting;)
