Blue sweater

Finished project last weekend: a light blue cotton sweater. If only the weather was good enough to wear it... I'm wearing all my winter clothes again.

A very simple pattern, with a bit of detail on the shoulders.


I found some knitting and crochet inspiration in the movies.
Wish I had the pattern for this sweater... Faye Dunaway in "Bonnie and Clyde". If you know a similar pattern somewhere, please let me know?

I would love to crochet this little vest. By the way, the costumes of this movie, "Bright Star",(about poet John Keats and Fanny Brawn) were fabulous! More information found here ( about creator Sophie Digard) and here.

And finally, these lovely vests,from "The Edge of Love", based on the love life of the poet Dylan Thomas. I haven't seen the movie yet, but the costumes look quite nice.

Sabine - your blue sweater is simply beautiful - the detail work is gorgeous! You are quite the knitter - I am so impressed!

I love the photos of the knitting in the movies also. That was fun to see. I am also inspired by knitted sweaters and such that I see in the movies - gives me inspiration also!
