Knit your own Holly Golightly!

By now it’s a pretty well-established fact that I love knitting and keep trying to force it on everyone else. Consider it one of my charms. 🙂 While going through my morning Audrey news search, I found a new knitting book called Knitted Icons: 25 Celebrity Doll Patterns, a crazy cool book that has patterns to make 25 of the most recognizable celebrities, all in vaguely voodoo doll-type form!

I wanted to mention it because it was cute, and also because I love knitting to movies as well (it helps me justify the fact that I’m sitting there, staring at a screen for two hours if my hands are at least busy).
