IT'S not just women who ^"" are getting the knitting habit. X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Green Lantern actor Ryan Reynolds was once asked what super-power he would like in real life and said: "My super power would be something more like knitting, my mutant ability would have a calming effect." Kill Bill's Uma Thurman has also been spotted in the past at an LA knitting supplies shop buying more than 30 balls of wool while Sarah Jessica Parker was taught to knit by her Sex And The City co-star Kristin Davis. Meanwhile, police have also turned to knitting to help in crime-fighting. Officers in Leicester asked knitters to get together to create colourful decorations to brighten up a city centre walkway and were thrilled with the response to their "guerilla knitting" tactics.
