Knittin' Crap: Stunt Knitting!

As I mentioned previously, I'd been doing some prop knitting for my friend's upcoming DIY steampunk movie. First I made a nice, Victorian-looking shawl... then I thought I should make a stunt double. So I did.

Star and Stand-in (and Spoon)
I don't know if Steve will want to use the stunt double in his movie, but it was certainly a challenge knitting something that looked like it was falling apart without actually being in close danger of falling apart. I even threw in some tea-staining! (A little too subtle to make out in the photo, but you can see it in person, where my lack of photographic skills doesn't obscure it.)
