Hi. My name is Beth and I have an obsessive personality. Most recently I found myself obsessed with the cowl/scarf/vest thing that Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss wears in the opening scenes of Catching Fire. So what does one with an obsessive personality do? Find a Katniss Inspired Cowl to knit (this one by Dahlia in Bloom, she also has the pattern for sale on etsy). And I knit one (I used Lion Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Oatmeal, readily available at Joann’s). Not only did I knit it, I completed it before my birthday on Tuesday. Fangirl confession? I wore it to see Catching Fire, on my birthday.
One of my neighbors happens to be an archery instructor (and he knows the woman who taught Jennifer Lawrence how to shoot – too cool), so you know, I asked to borrow a bow to pose with. Because once you have taken things this far… You have to take it all the way.
Next up, archery training.
(And sorry to my friends that are fangirls like me – I cannot knit one for you. I would have to charge you $300 just to pay myself fairly… But I will give knitting lessons… Just saying. )
