Watch and Knit: February

Marie Antoinette

Every February, there is only one movie that I want to watch. Between Valentine’s Day and my birthday, I want to fight the dreary nature of February’s days with opulence and lace and pink and too many sweet treats to count. You know where I’m going with this. We’re all going to watch Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.

Bethany, that’s great, but there is no knitwear in that movie. You’re right. The silk in this movie seems completely at odds with any hand knits, but I think you’ll find this movie has a soulmate in the knitting world. His philosophy, “more is more, less is a bore,” seems like it fits right in. So grab your brightest speckled yarns and your champagne and settle in to ignore the grey skies and the never-ending snow. We’re knitting Stephen West’s knits all day and all night. Don’t look at me like that. You know you want to.
