A Christmas Story

Merry Christmas, Kate!

TBS is showing A Christmas Story for 24 hours. Such a charming movie. And it's like a catalog for knitted and crocheted goods. Most of the garments are knitted, but there is definitely a crocheted ensemble that the mother wears when they get a flat tire and Ralphie doesn't say FUDGE. The knitting varies from simple stockinette to cabled to some pretty complicated colorwork.

That's all I got!




  1. I've always loved the knits in A Christmas Story. I wonder how many are hand crafted.

  2. I was wondering the same thing! Did they have a knitting section in their costume department that did nothing but create vintage-looking goodies?
