Movie Monday: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Director Tim Burton can often be counted on for weaving knitted items into the scenes of his movies. ย His version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) however, is his finest tribute to the love of yarn!

    That’s too funny! I was just watching this movie on TV this weekend and noticing all the fabulous knitting.

    Movie Monday – Not really a movie, but the season premier of True Blood showed Sookie picking up an unfinished scarf her grandma had been knitting – pink and purple and fuzzy-looking.

    Thanks for sharing!

    The first picture, however, looks like it’s from “Sweeney Todd.” Is it?
