Knits on a Scandal
Yesterday while working on a tank top for the summer issue of Knitty, I watched Notes on a Scandal (Cate Blanchett & Dame Judi Dench). If you enjoy a well-written, well-acted and utterly juicy flick, I highly recommend this one. As the title clearly states, this movie is centered around a scandal…well two, actually. One, as a result of a desperate woman’s monumentally bad judgement call the other, an equally desperate woman’s psychological warfare spawned from years of self-oppression and related mental illness. And as if the plotline weren’t enough to get thee logged-on to Netflix, this movie is also filled with knitwear! That my movie-loving friends, is what us stitchers call a win-win situation. Here are the knits I noted all worn by Cate’s character, “Sheeba”:
I just DVR’d this movie a couple of weeks ago, now I have to finally just scoot the kids out of the room (Nickelodeon/Disney are apparently the only channels my living room TV is tuned into), sit down with the yarn bag, and watch it!
I was wondering if you ever got a chance to see “Wool 100%” that I had recommended a while back.
A lot of love:
Yes, I love the pale pink lacy scarf with the long jacket.
Just found your blog – love it!
Loved your show, too!
yes, besides superb acting, the knitwear is just delish in this movie.
Love that movie, and yes, I did notice the knitwear! That’s something I always look for in movies!
Sandition–Will you refresh my memory on what that is?
this is one of my fave movies for knitwear. sheeba’s clothing style in general, actually, suits me perfectly.
