Zack & Miri Make a Purl, No?

Riddle me this, Batman.  Who’s the knitter/crocheter on the crew for, Zack & Miri Make a Porno?  Because let me tell you, the movie is a veritable “I Spy” delight for the yarn fan.   Stars Seth Rogan (Zack) and Elizabeth Banks (Miri) were rarely not sporting Feather & Fan,  Garter Stitch scrap,  and novelty crochet scarves; floral ponchettes; chunky, fair isle toboggans  and be-pompomed hats.
The flick itself is funny but I should mention, a hard “R”.  If you’re under-age or easily offended (or made uncomfortable) you should probably skip it.  Lest you have to then miss out on the yarn goodness of Zack & Miri however, I’ve created a pictorial–a knitwear storyboard, if you will–of some of pieces worn in the film.  Wardrobe department, this tribute’s for you!

Thanks to Dave who’s a big enough fan of Seth Rogan’s to stand in a 2-hour line last night for a SXSW screening of his new movie (Observe and Report), but still didn’t get (too) annoyed by the number of times I had him pause the Z&M Blu-ray so I could take pictures.   You are the wind beneath my knitted, fan-girl wings.

Now, carry on with your regularly scheduled programming.

    Thank you for mentioning this!!! I watched this movie twice and I also spotted some awesome knitwear. I kept telling my boyfriend throughout the movie, “I can totally make that”, or “I love her hat”, or “I AM totally going to make that hat!!” My favorite part is that it’s all displayed on the back of the door. I was actually wondering if you’d mention this movie since you’ve mentioned others with far less great knits!

    Thanks for the highlights! Better to see these than the movie for this non-Seth Rogen fan.

    Kisses to your Dave. He rocks to the 10th power!

    Oh my word…I watch for knit/crochet items in movies too. It’s just sad.

    I particularly liked the pieces in the Nancy Drew, and the Kit American Girl movies.

    Glad I’m not alone in this. I thought I was strange for doing it. 🙂

    these knits look really beautiful. I recently watched Fargo again and boy, the sweaters and accessories in that film! yikes!!!

    Vicki – How funny, I just watched this movie LAST NIGHT for the first time. I, too, took note of all the knitwear…I think Miri even mentions trading something with the gal at the yarn shop….possibly for her fun Reunion clothes?

    LOL. That would be a tough sell to the publisher. Retailers tend to shy away from craft books associated with the word “porn”. 😉
