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.  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?
