I saw it on Friday and I love her costumes! The movie itself wasn't that good though.

i thougth the costumes were pretty decent. i more rolled my eyes at the ending! are u kidding me?!?!??! it didnt end like the book did. pissed me off to no end! yes no end! becuase it didnt really "end!!!"
I know!!  Once it started fading, I started shouting "They are not ending it here.  No way no--How dare they?!  He didn't die!!  he's supposed to kill him!!"  Expressing my rage as best I could without giving it away . . .  People laughed at me.

I was staring at Lyra's hood the whole time with the evil "who am I going to force that onto" look on my face.  Because I liked it, but I wouldn't wear it.

I saw the movie today, and I actually thought it was pretty good. It was annoying that they cut the ending out, but it was nice that they clearly tried to keep it true to the books. I was dissapointed with how much they downplayed the daemons etc., but other than that I liked it a lot.

I love Lyra's pink sweater...I really want to make my own one day.

i haven't seen the movie yet, but i remember reading the books and being bored.  i just didn't jive with the author's style of writing, i suppose.  interesting concept, though.
anyway, i LOVE the clothes that the characters wear!  costumes are pretty much the best part of any movie.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

I'm a little obsessed with the bonnet-type hat with the rolled stockinette brim. It's seamed up the back so it must be knit in 1 piece, and the yarn is so thick I bet it would be FAST.

Is there a pattern for this one? I looked on lionbrand and didn't see anything like it. I'm hoping someone else might have figured it out and written one.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I have the series and they're great. I'm really interested to see how true to the book the movie is.

radiationbaby--yes, the first book does take quite a while to get into. In my opinion, the storyline doesn't really pick up until the second book. lol. That's when the plot broadens and deeper concepts are at play. But the Golden Compass is a really good book. The entire trilogy, although a children's book, asks some really philosophical (particularly ethical and metaphyisical) questions. They're great reading, but certainly not enjoyed by everyone.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

I think its just a knit rectangle.  Looks like maybe a cable cast on, and then seamed up the back with ties in the front.  I am working on one right now and I think its gonna work out. Thick yarn and larger needles, like size 10 or 11.

sara, if you find that it works, would you mind slapping together a pattern?  i loved that hat, too, but i'm basically a useless knitter if i don't have a pattern.

Sure thing, I can certainly try.  I am not much of a pattern writer though.  I'll see what I can do in the next few days and post pictures if its successful  Grin
