Knitwear at the Movies: 50/50

Am I a bad person if, when I saw the trailer for this movie, sitting in a darkened theatre, I thought to myself, Ooh, cancer, head-shaving scene... this is going to have a lot of hats?  (Answer: yes, yes I am.)

Three times for this movie: once just watching, once with commentary while knitting, and once for screenshots while knitting.  I really connected with the character of Adam (it doesn't hurt that he's played by super amazing awesome gorgeous Joseph Gordon-Levitt), plus I felt progressively less evil with each viewing.

I was wrong about the hats...
Just two?  -sigh-  I guess it's a realism thing.
Hat #1: wide-band striped beanie; Hat #2: wide-ribbed watch cap.  Sooo simple!  Sooo free!

The Blanket in Katherine's Office
Great big granny square!
he is so cute, I can't stand it
I wonder if Katherine is representing any particular school colors, or if some family member made this for her.  Fun fact: lots of knitting can be done by machine, but ALL crochet must be done by hand.  Truth.

Mitch's Wife's Cardigan
The shawl collar/buttonband looks to be in garter stitch, knit at the same time rather than picked up later.

Katherine's Nighttime Cardi
This shawl collar cardi (Anna Kendrick looks impossibly young) has some sort of waffle-y all-over pattern.

Thank you for reminding me that I need to watch this movie! I'm totally going to be paying attention to all the hats and knit work now, too.
