Cinematic Knits 1

It started with Glampyre's City Shawl.
Now it's official.

Cinematic knits is here to stay, albeit on a random basis.

DVD viewing on the weekend was the exceptional Normal from HBO (god, their quality is consistently high!) in which Jessica Lange
delivered a killer scene, whilst knitting.




TV viewing on the other hand... now what's the first thing that springs to mind when you think "Starsky and Hutch"? OK, what's the first thing that springs to my mind then?...

The trademark bulky cardigan of course!



Louise Mingenback (costume designer) got it just right.

And finally, last nights actual cinema viewing was Robert Altman's Prairie Home Companion. Alas... no knitting!


All the Top Down Bonnet needs now is ears. I started the first ear in front of the aforementioned S&H, but thanks to its highly distracting nature, I discovered half way through that I was knitting it inside out. The ear, that is. A purly ear.

So the ear is now ripped out (or off?) waiting for me to sit down in a more focused and contemplative state to finish it.

Love the bonnet!
Thanks for your comment today - sometimes I confuse honesty for being over-critical (see, I'm doing it again!!)

kate, yes! the 'no neck hunch' is spot on!
I agree about ben stiller.
All week I've had "Stiller-Starsky"'s alter-ego Finkel of Finkel's Fittings - complete with outrageous Elvis wig- saying "Doo it. Doo it." in my head and I'm still giggling like a schoolgirl.
Oh, you've gotta laugh.
