Yay, it’s the weekend! Time to kick back with the needles for a bit of knitting R&R πŸ™‚ Our weekend forecast says it’s finally goingΒ to rain. We’re hoping forΒ a downpour, since water bills are expensive and our lawns/gardens are getting pretty thirsty! Saturday the 13th is also World Wide Knit In Public Day. Will you be joining KIP friends to celebrate WWKIP Day? My rainy day weekend plan is to simply stay home, watch movies and knit…

Knitting and movies just seem to go together, wouldn’t you say? And for New York fashion designer, Greg Climer, they are kniterally the reel deal πŸ˜‰ Reel as in film. And film, as in his 19-second “watchable scarf” test reel. The test stretches about as long as a New York City block and took about a year and a half to make! Frame-by-knitted-frame… he’s turning film into fabric and fabric into film! Climer endeavours toΒ knit a 2-4 minute yarn story next. Wow, amazing art! JustΒ imagine the reel length of that scarf!!!

Watch his 19-second test reel, below. Click here and here to read more about Climer’s fab fibrous film.
