I went to see The Golden Compass tonight.  "Lyra" wore alot of knitted goods and most of them seemed to be Lion brand.  Did anyone else notice this???  BTW, great series of books and I was impressed the movie  stuck to the book.. people who hadn't read the series were mad at the ending, I chuckled,  that just means there is more to come  Cheesy

I just saw the movie yesterday too....my 6 year old has asked me no less than 50x per day, for the past 2 weeks (since he saw the trailer at "The Bee Movie") if we could go to see the Golden Compass....every day, "are we going Mom, are we going, huh?  huh?Huh  So yesterday we were there, bright and early!!!! Grin

I LOVED the knits Lyra was wearing, all the wardrobes were good (Nicole Kidman looked great).  I especially liked the sweater Lyra had on when she went to meet the Ice Bear that she hired --- is that a Lion Brand pattern that you recognize?

HOMESPUN anyone?!?

By the way, though, I completly want to make the jacket.  It's so kooky and awesome.

Off note:  Was I the only one who loved that Gandalf and Saruman were in this??

It was awesome.  I'm a big fan of the books as well and it lived up to and exceeded my expectation.  I want to go back and see it again.  I want her hat. Not the one below, but the one she wears at the end of the movie.  I love her sweater too.  If you know where to get the pattern, please let me know.
Thanks!

I went there expecting to be disappointed, actually, because Hollywood -never- sticks to the book in my experience. However, my expectations to be disappointed were disappointed! I was very happy with it. I wasn't so happy with the knits Lyra wore; -surely- they had something other than super bulky yarn, even if they were handspun by the Gyptians! Though.... I do want that hat she wore, that rolled back on itself around her face.

I'd like to say that jacket is on their website in the easy knits section and I think I found it.. Hers was just in red.  I almost made this once and I think this may be an Xmas present to myself.

http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/khs-flatteringJacket.html.. what do you guys think?  I am thinking a knit a long after the holidays!   Smiley

If you can't see the pattern  let me know but the name of the jacket on their website is flattering jacket

Oh thank god someone finally posted about this.  I saw it last night and I thought "Oh my god I need those hats, I need to see if anyone on Craftster has posted on it yet?"

 I havnt read the books but I am certainly going to now.

The hat at the end of the movie I think is like, easy enough to make.  Basically i think you start off with a cable cast on and just knit up a square large enough to go from ear to ear in stockinette and then fold in half, sew up one side and add ties in the front, if anyone at all understands that.  I makes sense in my head  Tongue

I am wondering though, about the one she has when she is with Nicole Kidman in the fancy house, the red one with the disk on top.  Anyone have any ideas on that one?

The whole time I was watching, I was looking at all of Lyra's knitted clothes and it made me really excited. In my head I literally said, "there will be plenty of posts on craftster about these!" so thanks for making me right! Wink

I've never read the books.. but I didn't like the movie either.. it was not an end yet.
