There Be Dragons!!

Before we get into dragons I wanted to mention that my friend Jen is running a really cool online workshop. I am looking forward to it - writing isn't one of my strengths and I'll use any excuse to take some pictures. Jen is offering a two for one deal (how can you beat that?). Amy from Amy Hood Arts is looking for a partner to join along with so if you're interested definitely get in touch with her. 

I'm not much of a Knit-A-Long (KAL for short) person. I tend to knit things on my own timeline. If it's a mystery KAL you can most certainly count me out.

Until the Game of Thrones Mystery KAL came along. I stumbled across it on a Yarn Along blog post that somebody shared.   I had just gotten into the series this year (thanks to my dad) and was anxious to cast it on. 

And I'm glad I did. 


Now you'll have to excuse the photos. This color green was a real challenge to capture. 


It blended with everything!! 


The construction is pretty neat and it's large. So large that I couldn't find a spot big enough to lay it all out. 


It stays on my shoulders really nicely. And the drape is incredible. 


Now mine looks a little different from the others because... I ran out of yarn. Don't ask how. I had more than enough according to the pattern. But it's ok. 

We shall just call it a "design feature".

Thank you for the shoutout for the workshop! I am very excited about it. And you don't have to do any writing :-) Thank you again!

I want to knit that pattern, it's beautiful. It doesn't hurt either that I love the name since you know I'm a fan.

I hope you have a fun weekend Donna. Are you going to the beach? It's so hot here it's even too hot for the beach!
