Movie Monday: Precious

I was finally able to see Precious: Based on the Novel by Sapphire last week. The story of a horrifically abused teenager and her journey to rise above it; the movie was as well acted, written and directed as it was tragically heart-breaking.
Here are a couple of great, knitted pieces that made an appearance in Precious, too.
Gabourey Sidibe as “Precious” in a Garter Stitch & Eyelet Cardigan

Angelic Zambrana as “Consuelo” in an ’80’s Inspired Off-the-Shoulder Top

Recommended Knitting:
Bountiful Bohus, by Chrissy Gardiner (from More Big Girl Knits)’s Cables & Eyelet Hoodie
Off-the-Shoulder Pullover, by Vladimir Teriokhin (from Vogue Knitting)
Yarn-Over Steek Vest, by Teva Durham (from Loop-d-Loop)
Happy viewing; happy stitching!

    Hi Vickie,
    you forgot the link for the “Yarn-Over Steek Vest, by Teva Durham”.
    Thanks for the links, I look forward to your movie Mondays.

    Heya. I didn’t forget the link, it’s just the one pattern that’s not available on the web. Her book’s absolutely worth buying though–it’s filled with great projects!

    I love your Movie Mondays. Have you done The Holiday? I especially like the white cabled sweater that Cameron Diaz wears when she runs downstairs to answer the door and meets Jude Law.

    I’ve always liked the sweater Beverly D’Angelo wears in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation when she nervously lights up a cigarette, then viciously chops the cabbage with a big knife!
