I can’t believe it’s November and the time for my two releases in Technicolor Movie Night. On the Set first premiered in Technicolor Matinee but is actually knit into my new release for Movie Night, which comes out next week. I don’t’ want to give away any secrets on that design, so I thought I’d share some behind the scenes fun from On the Set.
Picking the photoshoot location my mind’s eye went back to the wedding scene in Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. I looked all around and down a gravel road near the Watauga River was a historic church with the quintessential “old gate” in front. The church didn’t look much like that in the movie, but the bucolic setting hit right home!
On the Set is a REALLY long skinny, but still functionally wide, scarf. The length enables so many fun wearing and tying options! But in reality, the “really long” bit has to do with next week’s release. The width, too, as a matter of fact. However, the little tweaks to the stitch pattern from the collection – those go right back to the collection’s theme, movies. Watch the reel flicker through the viewing screen in the center of each pattern repeat!
The slipped stitch edge also plays an important role in how this scarf transforms… but for more on that, stay tuned for next week’s release!
Oh, and a funny note about the photoshoot, the mosquitoes and gnats were absolutely swarming! The majority of my photo editing was removing little bugs from between the camera and the knitting (or my face). I wonder what tricks Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire used to keep the swarms away from their wedding scene?
