Despicable Me

I'm posting this post for a few reasons.  First, it is despicable (of) me to not post on the blog for over a week.  Seriously. Unacceptable.  I swear I'll do better.

Second, we watched this movie over the weekend, and like any normal person (ya right...), it took me all of a millisecond before I noticed the knits throughout the movie.  Okay, there aren't that many, but enough.

Here is the main character Gru and his scarf.  He's a villian, or trying to be:

Do you like Gru's scarf?  I sure do!  Interested in knitting one of your own? Well, you can.  Check out Brigette Pini's pattern available for sale on Ravelry.  It's a mere $2.00.  Good deal.

Here is Edith.  This cutie loves knitwear too!

Brigette has also pattern for Edith's sweater.  It's super cute and cartoon-y.  A bit pricier at $5.00, but if your kids loved this movie, it'd probably be worth it.

I think I saw somewhere that Brigett is working on doing up a hat pattern for Edith's hat too.  There is already one available through Hilary Hunt.  It's called the Edith Hat and costs $1.99.

Do you fancy some Minions to call your own?  There is a free pattern for Minions available here.

What exactly is a Minion?  Who knows, but they sure are cute!  In the movie they help Gru with all his villian work.  I might have to make one of these for my husband for Christmas.  He definitely needs some Minions to help him get his work done!

I hope this post brings a smile to your day and makes me a little less despicable.

The movie was adorable, well worth watching, kid, adult and knit friendly.
