Cersei update


As many of my friends know I am a huge fan of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.  I've decided to take that infatuation one step farther and write some knitting patterns inspired by the characters in the books.  So far on Ravelry I have published Arya.  I have many more characters talking to me about their pieces, but for the last few months, Cersei Lannister has held the spotlight.  Her pattern is a shaped like a Danish tie shawl and is lace and cables combined together, not a a knit for the faint of heart.  Laura at  The Unique Sheep did an awesome job with my custom color request and Hear Me Roar was born.  I have been knitting and beading like mad in an effort to finish and publish in time for the season finale of the HBO series, alas I believe that I'm going to run out of the wonderful red before the end and have ordered more yarn.  Thankfully my creative cohort Dave persuaded me to do a test of the pattern in another yarn as well and that one I will be able to finish in time to have a photo with the finished pattern!  So, I will continue to work on my Lambspun prism version and patiently await Laura's dyeing magic with Hear Me Roar and the order that I placed for a group of insistant ladies from Dorne ;-)
