The Knitwear of Mad Men

I believe that Mad Men is the perfect show. I recently confessed to having never watched an embarrassing number of extremely popular tv shows and movies. The OC and Barry... never done it. Love Island Australia and all of Bravo... I've watched every episode. But this is mainly because when I decide to emotionally invest in an actual show I want to be sure that I'm going to love it. I've watched Charmed all the way through at least three times and the same can be said about my favorite show of all time... Mad Men.


I had to do a quick search on *B*CH before I started writing this because it seemed impossible that I haven't already done this post. In fact, I don't think I ever hosted a Mad Men knitflix night which also seems impossible. But today I right that wrong and break down the knitwear of my favorite Mad Men characters and show you how you can make them yourself. 

Try to guess the moment when I discovered Lisa Richardson's patterns for the first time and then this just devolved into a Lisa Richardson fan page. Let me know in the comments below if I missed your favorite knitted or crocheted moment from Mad Men. I will admit that this post is light on crochet patterns. So if you have suggestions for crochet patterns I should have included leave those in the comments too! 

Happy Crafting!

Justice for Trudy! 
She is one of my favorite characters, by the way, and I couldn't find a single yanie thing that she wears. If I missed something epic definitely leave that in the comments below!

Top 10 Forgotten Knits in Memorable Movies

W hen you think of each of these movies chances are these are not the sweaters that pop into your head. But they should be! I'm going to explore knitwear that is continuously overlooked because a much more iconic item of knitwear steals the show. Maybe this will inspire you to take a second look at these movies. Each of these movies is going to get their own posts eventually. But, those posts will most likely focus on the other more popular knits. So this is a moment for the underdogs to shine!

The Knitwear of Emily In Paris

G oing into Emily In Paris, I assumed that it was going to be similar to shows like Sex and The City and Gossip Girl but I couldn't have been more wrong.  Emily in Paris is the story of a gallery girl named Camille who has a fateful run-in with social media marketer Emily Cooper. Emily has just recently moved to Paris. Despite giving off a friendly first impression, Emily has a dark motive, and she slowly weasels her way into Camille's life. By the end of the season, Emily has found a way to cheapen Camille's family Champagne business, slept with Camille's boyfriend, and also her 17-year-old brother. And for some reason, no one is talking about the two biggest mysteries of the series. One, what happened to the former social media manager Patricia who was the only person to see Emily for who she is. And two, Emily's wardrobe is MASSIVE, but we only see her moving in a few suitcases to her apartment at the beginning of the show. And in the last episode, we learn that
