Confession: I’m kind of a Hunger Games fangirl. If you’re not already familiar with the gripping trilogy of young-adult sci-fi novels, you will be soon, because it’s about to get Harry Potter huge. I saw another woman my age reading the second book in the series alone at a bar the other day. She’d taken the dust jacket off, but wasn’t fooling me. And who’d want to hide their fandom anyway when you can sport it with cool goods, like this crochet pop art mockingjay blanket?
Superfan Shylah Addante puts her passion for the books into yarn, and the results are always amazing. You can check out the other Panem-inspired blankets she’s created at DeviantART and purchase some from her Etsy store. (Provided that other fans like yours truly don’t snap them up first.) Seriously, if this post makes no sense to you, get a move on and read those books before the first film adaptation comes out in March 2012! And if it does make sense, “May the odds be ever in your favor!”
