Since my husband is the founder of a movie reviews website, and I’ve been posting for years about onscreen knitwear it’s no secret that we’re big movie fanatics in our house. With this year’s Academy Awards ceremony only hours away, though our thoughts are purely theatrical! So join me in basking in the cinematic cross-over of knits meets flicks.

First off, check out the Yarnspirations Design Team’s ode to iconic knitwear of movies past and present with patterns inspired by: The Big Lebowski, Frozen, The Book Thief, The Hunger Games, and The Life Aquatic. Get the free patterns and purchase kits to make the projects on their website.


Frozen Snacks Warm the Heart: Frosted Snack Mix, Snowball Cookies & Marshmallow Olafs

Next, plan a picture-worthy party. If you’re watching the Oscars with your little, movie love then, how about some film-inspired finger foods that he or she will love? See my Frozen party post here.

Last, get an inside look at the man behind one of my favorite Oscar contenders up for awards tonight, Nebraska‘s, Will Forte.


Happy viewing; happy knitting!
