Glorious knitting screen time
It occurred to me recently while watching the lovely English series, ‘Our Zoo’, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04gvbkzthe based on the founding of Chester Zoo in the 1930’s, that I was completely drawn into the show by the stunning knits of the era.
A search on ravelry revealed many possibilities for replicating these gorgeous 1930’s designs.

I then got to thinking of the many sources of inspiration on the screen such as the current trend for all things Outlander https://www.starz.com/series/outlander/episodes, where in my house I watch to see what Claire is wearing in the numbingly cold but beautiful Scottish highlands while Paul watches to see what Claire is NOT wearing!

In Elementary, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2191671/, Lucy Liu never ceases to provide knit envy moments;

And who can forget what the series, ‘The Killing’ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0826760/, did for Norwegian knits?

Anyhow…. If I keep going on, it may only serve to prove how many endless hours have been spent viewing/knitting and so I won’t recriminate myself any further!
PS Cascade Magnum arriving soon along with more Malabrigo and an exciting newcomer! Stay tuned.
