Also--this isn't in a movie, actually, but it's movie based and SO AWESOME that I thought I would share it here (hope it's not a repost)

I love Mr.Tumnus's scarf, I was lucky to unearth one that looked just like it from our coat closet.  Grin It would be fun to make a perfectly accurate one though.

I second the River pictures. I especially like that off-white vest thing. It fits in really well with the space/cowboy/kinda grimy aesthetic of the show

I'm just finishing grafting the hood together on that sweater!  (Well, the original one, which is Rogue from girlfromauntie.com.)  It's my first sweater and second large project, and it's actually quite easy.

Oh my god, I hope you post pics.  I bet you are so proud of it. 

On another Lord of the Rings related post, here is a vest that Sam wears in the movie.  I thought it was kind of cute.

I know her hat is crochet, but I love this movie and I think it's cute:



But I think the dog sweater is knit! Cheesy

I was watching the episode of MST3K where they did the Russian/Finnish movie "Jack Frost". It has quite a bit of gratuitous knitting in it during the first few minutes and Mike says "So the first plot point involves knitting socks, I think we're in for quite a ride, guys"


(Btw, the episode is on youtube. The whole movie itself is a special kinda crazy.)

"Oh well we sometimes feel we're to blame in some way for what our gran's become. I mean she used to be happy here until she, she started on the crochet.
 Now she can't do without it. Twenty balls of wool a day, sometimes. If she can't get the wool she gets violent. What can we do about it?"

There are a couple of really great knits in the Science of Sleep.  If you haven't seen the movie, go now and rent it.  Its very crafty-oriented. 

Here is the knit hat that he wears constantly:



She also wears a cozy-looking tweedy sweater and a very cool knit mini-dress, but despite my best efforts I couldn't find a pic of the dress. 

here is the sweater:



edited to add in a better pic:



If anyone comes across her dress, please post it!
