Clearly my profession-obsession holds its firm place at the forefront of my brain as I seem to be completely incapable of just watching a movie when knitwear makes an appearance in it. This weekend we saw Sweeney Todd and along with Burton/Depp/Bonham Carter brilliance, I found myself focused on accessories: garter stitch wrist warmers, seed stitch scarf, cabled fingerless gloves… It’s an illness really, but one that I feel the need to share with you. Now see here!
Garter Stitch Wrist Warmers
(Worn by Johnny Depp as the title character.
Make a similar pair, using my free Hand Like a Hole pattern)
Thank you for listening.
P.S. If you’d like to spend your Sunday indulging in Tim Burton-movie-knitwear-goodness after ST, don’t forget Charlie & the Chocolate Factory (new version). 🙂
P.P.S. I’d love to give the designer credit here, but don’t know who it is (for either movies). Anyone know?
