Knitting on Fraggle Rock

Remember Fraggle Rock? A place where tuft-haired little monsters with bug eyes spent their days running from Gorgs, eating the constructions of tiny green hard-hatted men and getting advice from a talking pile of rubbish? Classic TV.

This video shows what happens when The Doozers (aforementioned hardhatted little green men) give up their building and decide to take up knitting.

Ball of Wool

In Serebryakov’s 10-minute film Ball of Wool (1968), an old woman meets a sheep in the forest and knits herself warm clothes, a house and furniture out of its coat, before coming up against her own limitations when she tries to remake herself as a beautiful girl. With its striking use of colour and its witty exploration of the medium, Ball of Wool is one of the masterpieces of Russian animated cinema.
