Knit Pix: Addams Family Edition

I really don’t know how it could have escaped my attention that Morticia Addams, the quintessential femme fatale, was a knitter.

Angelica Huston in “Addams Family Values”

Bless her heart, she even tried to teach Lurch:

Morticia teaching Lurch how to knit.

Poor dear, he seems a bit bewildered — though it’s always kind of hard to tell with Lurch.



  1. My first Reddit link! Cool! Thanks!

  2. The still of Lurch is wonderful. But in the true spirit of Hollywood, Angelica Huston is merely posing with a prop, not knitting. She doesn’t have the working yarn in either hand and is clearly focused on something else. Gotta love the old series; their expressions are just right.

    • You can find it on YouTube. By the way, wasn’t Carolyn Jones _actually_ knitting in the old series? I’ve watched her hand movements and it seems that she was.

      • Could be — haven’t seen the old TV show in years.
