Blank Canvas and Pride and Prejudice

Blank Canvas Progress

I have been away on holiday – to Rottnest and the best thing about Rottnest is that there is not much to do, so you have time! I finished another pussyhat and as you can see above worked on my Blank Canvas. I have made it to the point where I start increasing (after all the waist decreasing).

While knitting I have been watching Pride and Prejudice this version

Pride and Prejudice 1995

I do like this version who can forget such memorable moments as Mr Darcy in the bath, Lydia running into Mr Collins while scampering about in her undies, Mr Darcy’s wet shirt? And the costumes – I do love beautiful period costumes. I have the book The Making of Pride and Prejudice, which is full of fabulous information about the production and has a chapter on costume, hair and make-up.

Mood Board for Mr Darcy and a design for Caroline Bingley

There is also a Making of Pride and Prejudice documentary you can watch – it is on the DVD and Bluray.

I am amazed and intrigued by how these productions come together.
