So I haven’t posted much in the way of my knitting projects for a while and that’s because I was working on this Cersei Lannister/GoT afghan for Miss @westerhos!
The red panels read (left to right) CERSEI, LANNISTER, and HEAR ME ROAR. The LANNISTER panel is flanked by lions (adapted from a Harry Potter pattern, lol, especially cause both times I bought yarn for this project I was asked if I was doing a Harry Potter project, haha) and then some gold cabling on either end cause 1) I love cables and 2) Cersei has had some interesting braids over the years.
When it came time to send the blanket on its way, someone refused to stop snuggling it so he stowed away and should now be settling into city life.
I want a line of themed yarns that work up in to different pictures. For instance a Doctor Who series. You buy random skeins and might make a scarf with weeping angels, the empty child, or a dalek. So many options. So much surprise. So much copy right issues, lol. @redheartyarns maybe, can we please get something like this?
<b>What she says:</b> I'm fine.<p/><b>What she means:</b> In the opening screen of Mystic Messenger Zen's ponytail is shown to ge thick enough to be put into a very thick braid. However, in the rest of the game, his hair is fairly thin, about the thickness of 20 pieces of yarn. The fandom makes it even worse, by contributing work in which it varies from very, very, very thin to very thick. And I know I'm caring too much about this bUT I JUST WANT A CONSISTENT HAIR THICKNESS FOR ZEN.<p/></p>
A small circle of lamp light and warmth and hope under the endless (post-apocalyptic) desert sky.
100% superwash Merino wool. Super soft and squishy 100gr/~200m (DK weight) This
yarn stands up to a gentle machine wash (wool/silk cycle) but for this
colourway I would strongly recommend cold hand wash the first few times.
This first dye batch has about 1/3rd lamp light to 2/3rds sky - the future version will have the same colours but a little less lamp light (perhaps ¼th). If you want one of these first four I suggest you don’t wait to order, and please put your preference in the comment box. I will accomodate if I can.
And because I’m having a lot of warm fuzzy feelings for the Fury Road fandom, use HITUMBLRFRIEND0715 as a coupon code and you’ll get 10% off :-)
Experimenting with a slightly fancier Version of the Tom Baker scarf. In the upper right corner you can see just the basic knitting…looks a bit like a ribcage, doesn’t it?! The other 3 pictures are versions of how it could look when braided. It is made from leftover yarn of my regular Season 12 scarf, and I dont really know yet how long it will be in the end. I’m not really happy with the colorchanges, but it will do for an experiment :)
If you are going to be using them, a like or a reblog would be nice! And if you are up to it, credit me (by linking back here).

So, sometime in the nearish future I will be making fandom blankets which will have this basic description.
Crocheted, quilt-like blanket with symbols from the fandom embroidered onto the squares. For example, I am making me and a friend of mine a Supernatural one. It’s going to have various symbols on the squares.
So the fandoms I would most likely make them in are Supernatural, Dr. Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, possibly Hetalia. If there are any suggestions, message me. I would probably sell these for between 20-40 dollars. I’ll know exactly what when I make the ones from me and my friend. I just want to get a guage on if people would buy them or not. :3

Hey fellow knitters and crafters, I’m making a knit balaclava version of Captain Marvel’s and I have most of it figured out, but I can’t decide what to do about the spiral earpiece part. I think making a separate piece that is sewn on is the way to go, but I’m not sure the best way to get that shape. Any suggestions?
