Olek, NYC’s Favorite Crocheter, Is Making a Movie


Olek, the fabulous lady who has crocheted cars, bicycles, humans, and the Wall Street bull (among other things) is now collaborating on a movie called Yarnana, which will be all about her “crochet madness.” It’ll be shot in mid-July in the city, and casting is currently under way.
