Cinematic Knits V

Stepford Wives - the 2004 remake, starring the increasingly oddly-nosed Nicole (who incidentally went to the same highschool as me ...bugger! that couldn't been one of my Random Facts. Oh well, let's make it Random Fact #8).

In an otherwise formulaic and
very broad bru
shstroke style of film, there are two saving graces (make that three: Glenn Close pretty much eats the scenery in this one).

Firstly, on black-

Walter Kresby:
"Only castrating Manhattan career bitches wear black. Is that what you want to be"?

Joanna Eberhart: "Ever since I was a little girl".

Secondly, this pretty cool knit.

Is it a scarf? Is it a cape? A scape? A carpf?
Whatever it is it's very drapey yarn. And the colour? Nice.

I'm so glad I tagged Charlotte, have you seen her response? It's this very charming photographic essay, go check it out.

Remaining tagees:
Loraine, Martha*, Fee, Girlprinter and the Eminently Taggable Eero!

I kind of drooled over that scarf/cape/wrap thingo too, and had been thinking, hmmm, that would be easy to make, surely?

There's nothing wrong with wearing black.

i love your cinematic knits posts! thanks for doing them.

have you seen the sweater worn by one of the teachers in Finding Forrester? at least i think that's the movie the sweater was in, it's been years since i've seen the movie.

anyway the sweater is kind of greeny mud colored and has endlessly long frayed at the end sleeves. i know it sounds beyond ugly but i think the sweater looks great on the actress.
