In this animated short from the Hothouse 5 series, a lonely old lady sits in an empty room knitting. As her thoughts wander, her dreams take the shape of fanciful knitted creatures and objects that cocoon her in a pattern of wonder and comfort.

This film was made as part of the 5th edition of the NFB's Hothouse apprenticeship.

    My Grandmother's name was Pearl. This reminded me of her. I also thought the whale was really beautiful.
