Are any of you watching HBO’s epic series, Game of Thrones? It’s not for the faint of heart, but oh, it is a feast for the eyes! Picture this: a dark, dirty pub that likely stinks of alcohol, body stench and urine. Scarred soldiers and beastly vagrants litter the place, all ready to kill or die during the next bar brawl. Then, one of the most despicable of the bunch, a background character without an ounce of moral standing, rises to threaten a young, lady Arya. He’s donning the usual leather and cloth of the time period, but what’s this I see? A garter stitch, flow-y cape/vest draped from his ruffian shoulders! I suppose even cretins need to stay cozy. Behold, a couple of iPhone screen shots for your viewing enjoyment!
Alas, neither Bernat nor I have any designs fit for battle. However, we do have flow-y ponchos and wraps!
Just for fun, here’s a shot of the Knit Rider, knit chain mail from my very first book, New Knits on the Block.
Happy knitting; happy viewing!
