As long as they pay for the yarn.

Celebrity Knitting Queue

1-Tea cosy for Sarah Michelle Gellar, to give poor Buffy a break for one measly hour.
"I don't want any trouble. I just want to be alone and quiet in a room with a chair and a fireplace and a tea cozy. I don't even know what a tea cozy is, but I want one." Buffy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer 3:1

2-The Widdicombe Fair afghan for Shiloh Pitt-Jolie (Jolie-Pitt?), to give her something cuddly under which to hide from her mother's resentment that the little girl was born and not adopted.

3- Cabled willie warmer for Pee Wee Herman.
"It's like you're unravelling a large cable-knit sweater that somebody keeps knitting, aaaaand knitting, aaaaand knitting, aaaaand........." Pee-Wee's Big Adventure

4-Scarf made from hundreds of big, many-coloured crocheted and knitted flowers, for Macy Gray. Because she's a good kind of crazy that way.

5-Single-ply cashmere/silk twin set for Reese Witherspoon, to teach her that happiness depends on fiber content.
"No, David: nobody is happy in a poodle skirt and a sweater set." Jennifer, Pleasantville


6-Felted soundproof earmuffs for Katie Holmes.

7-Postmodern legwarmers for Karen Kain.

8-Set of beanies for the barenaked ladies, one of my all-time favourite bands. Because they'd wear them.

9-The Intolerable Cruelty skirt for Jamie Lee Curtis.

10-Icarus Shawl for Britney Spears. Not that she'd understand.

What, nothing for Dolly Parton? Shame girl ... but is there enough wool in the world to make her what she really needs ... a hair net!

Hehehe. I like this. I heard today that Angelina is allegedly preggo with another baby. Maybe this means poor Shiloh will move up on the totem pole of her mother's love.
