The group I fight with is based on Tolkien and with the Hobbit having recently come out the guys that play dwarves are all over the idea of a dwarven helm with beard for when they’re in costume. And when they realized I knit … and could make them such a thing … Oh the eyes that I got. So I’m knitting a hat that should look like a helm and I’ll add a long braided beard to it. I’ve just gotten to the decreases so the hat should start going a lot faster now.
The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente. The second in the series and she’s work on the third. She has a way with words that just make the story zoom by and you lose hours as you eagerly turn the page to see what’s next.
