Hedwig and the Angry Inch Swap
Once again, my favorite Ravelry group had a knitting swap. This time, it was movie themed. We all picked what movie we wanted our package to be created around. I got Amber and she chose Hedwig and the Angry Inch. What a great movie to pull inspiration from!
I knit her the Charlize shawl. I've knit it before and it's a great pattern! I saw at one point during the movie Hedwig wore a black shawl that was lacy. Perfect! The yarn I chose has actual silver spun into it. The best part of this shawl? When you lay it flat it looks like Hedwig's hair!
Pattern: Charlize by Vanessa Smith
Yarn: Kraemer Yarns Sterling Silk & Silver
See more photos and notes on my Ravelry page.
Knit Knack's mascot is Helen, an owl. I borrowed some felt from my friend Katie and made Amber a Hedwig Owl!
I also crocheted her a flower brooch with cassette tape. So rock and roll!
I made her crazy glittery fingernail polish inspired by Hedwig's amazing make-up.
I dyed her yarn inspired by Hedwig's hair.
Lastly, I sent some candy. If you've seen the movie then you know the significance of gummy bears, sugar daddy and German chocolate- with nuts!
Stay tuned to see what my buddy sent me! My theme was the movie Valley Girl. Can't wait!
