...Knitting needles as weapons...hmmmmmnn...

[[[SPOILER ALERT]]]

Scout and I were watching the movie Dragon Hunters...and the now grown up dragon hunter has a flashback to the time when the dragon called the World Gobbler destroyed his home and killed his parents...

...as a frightened child he pulls out his mother's knitting needles...

...draws a picture of the dragon and stabs it in the eyes with the needles...

...then back to the 'present' where he is a grown up dragon hunter - he pulls the needles from his pack...

...and uses them to slay the dragon...

...anywhooo - a pretty good movie which was apparently much more popular in Europe than it was in the US...I wonder why...

  4. Dragons, tricky enemies but great and useful pets.

    I would be so very interested to know if the writer or power behind the film had a much loved relative who knitted!

  5. We almost rented it last night, but the girls picked Free Willy 4 instead. Not sure we ended up with the better of the two. :)

  9. Finally, revenge for the knitters! Seriously, when I am walking alone in the dark city streets, I feel a bit more confident when I have some needles on me...
