1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Movie Knits on: October 08, 2007 01:37:38 AM
did anyone see the jane austen book club?  maria bello wears a few really awesome sweaters in it and one of the characters (kathy baker) actually knits at every meeting.  maria bello wears this really great, cabled shawl collar cardigan in one scene.  she also wears a great fair isle blanket/sweater in a lot of the movie.  i've been searching high and low for some comparable patterns that i can tweak but no luck yet. there aren't any real screencaps of the sweaters.  argh. well if you see the movie, keep an eye out for some awesome knits.

is it the sweater with the circular pattern on the front?  it's from an out of print booklet from 2004.  i emailed them about it and they emailed me the pattern.  i don't have a picture of it at the moment but it's the one with the blonde on it and the sweater is like biege/creme.

well it doesn't look like there are any special increases from what i can see, as it looks like the cables and ribs stay in pattern. but maybe you can do the first few rows with a smaller needle so that it hugs a bit better.  and i think the poof part is achieved with a loose fit and then decreasing all the stitches only in the last few rows.  kirsten dunst always looks good in those sort of poofy hats.  i think it must be her face/head shape.

here are my armwarmers just finished a few days ago. i used kuryeon #88 like the ones in the book. i fiddled with the two skeins to get them to semi-match. the leftovers are going to be a hat.  i pretty much followed the instructions in the book. the only annoying thing was having to go out and make a reverse copy of the chart for the left mitt. other than that it was easy peasy and i like them a lot.

i think your mitten looks great.  love the green and orange.  lots of time i get gaps where the fingers go in gloves and mittens.  sometimes i will try to pick up a couple more stitches than required at the "crotch" area and just decrease it down in the next row.  any other holes i just sew up with the tail end of my yarn when i weave in the ends.  that always seems to work.  good luck on mitten #2!

that hat looks great.  very authentic.  would you mind posting your version of the pattern? i'd like to compare the two before starting on one to see which i like better.  now i just have to find some suitable yarn.... Smiley

your hat looks awesome.  i love firefly and was so sad to see it go (just like wonderfalls). well at least there is gonna be a movie.  i have been wanting to make a jayne hat and using lopi is such a good idea.  great job!

i hope this works. i have never posted a picture before...
well i just finished the basic cable hat.  used less than 1 skein of lamb's pride worsted in limeade. because of the shortness discussion,  i added 3 rows of ribbing before starting the cable and added a cable repeat before starting my decreases.  my head is not that big and it turned out to be the perfect length. i would suggest that most people add a cable repeat or two, especially if their head is on the bigger size.  no pom pom for me.

but great pattern and super easy to follow. i love how it came out.  i will probably make this hat again in the future.
