Winter is coming.
Fortunately we’re knitters/crocheters and that’s pretty much the best news ever.
I have a confession to make: crocodile stitch really skeeves me out. I don’t know why, it’s a textural thing. I dislike the look of it. That said, making a dragon’s egg and pretending to be Danaerys appeals more than I would ever admit. This is a paid pattern.
One of my favourite parts of the books/show is the direwolves. They’re awesome. I am the type of person who had imaginary pets as a kid, which… I already had a house full of animals, so I’m not sure why. Anyway, I wanted a giant wolf for a while. Now I want these mittens.
Game Of Thrones Throw
I haven’t tried illusion knitting yet. I think I might have to when there are patterns like this. It just looks like a normal throw and then you move a bit and GASP! IT’S A DIREWOLF WARNING ME OF WINTER! Glorious.
Next Friday I’ll be going back to my roots: a selection of Buffy-inspired patterns. Yeah.
P.S. I tried to get permission to post these pictures. One did not reply. If you see this and want me to take the picture down, let me know!
