This weekend my husband and I saw Avengers Endgame, don’t worry I won’t spoil anything. The only comment I will say is that the Hulk has always been my favorite and he’s wearing what looks like a hand knit cardigan and I love him (and Mark Ruffalo, the actor who plays him) for it. I knew the movie was going to be three hours long so I brought along my Allison cardigan to have a nice long stretch of time to knit stockinette stitch.
I captured pics via Instagram before and after the movie. Before, just a few inches at the armhole.
Definitely made some progress. On Instagram a lot of people asked me how I could knit in the dark. I found that as I got more confident in my knit and purl stitches, stockinette stitch was super easy to do without looking. I can just feel the stitches. Anything more complex I just can’t do, like brioche. I’d just be asking for a messed up project if I attempted brioche in the dark. And speaking of brioche and superheroes.
My husband loves Captain Marvel, so when I picked up dog food for the girls yesterday they had a huge Avengers display and I thought a Captain Marvel T-shirt was worth the $10 for Jellybean since she always wears clothes. He agreed and she looks so cute in it. Jellybean was nestled in between my legs while I was working on another La Brioheme cardigan, this one in Patons Metallic yarn (you may remember this now discontinued but pretty metallic yarn from my Togue Pond tank last year) for my cousin Safia. I’m hoping to finish it up and bring it to her when we go to Chicago, so I’m switching between my Allison cardigan and this one to keep my knitting brain engaged. I’m never a monogamous knitter.
But is anyone else a movie knitter?
