The third tunic we put together was even better than the others. I like the length, though he wants it a bit shorter. The next one will be a compromise between the two. I really l,like the pattern on this fabric. I tried something a little different with…

Our newest unit member finally has the correct number of swords in the correct size and the, mostly, correct shield. So they were outfitted with the unit colors. The shield came in first so Jon and knocked that out while we waiting for new swords. The…

Gloves are almost a necessity for fighters, though there are always those that have no cares for their knuckles. I wanted to replace my blue gloves with black to go more with the normal gloves. While I like making my own gloves … I still want some…

I’m quite in love with this hat. I think it’s adorable. It was lovely to knit, fast and pretty simple directions. I think the most difficult part was finding time to go shopping for the ribbon. Pattern:Chapeau Marnier by Marnie MacLean Project Page:…

Our second attempt at a tunic for Jon went much better. I still wanted it a bit longer but it’s the right size across the shoulders and through the chest. He wants to change the neckline, and we found a way to make that better too, on the next one.…

This was originally meant to be a tunic for Jon but it came out entirely too small. So we set it aside as a spare tunic for anybody that showed up for practice with no garb, basically a newbie. Riddari was kind enough to model it for me, despite it being…

Knitting: I try to give this as much time as I can but it’s mostly getting attention at work. Yet another secret project is taking my time at home. Gaming: I’ve logged onto Star Wars but only with enough time to do a mission. I can’t wait for the event to…

Knitting: I’m slowly making progress on the hat for Jon. It fits perfectly and he’s happy so now it’s just a matter of powering through miles of ribbing. Sewing: I have enough fabric for 5 tunics and a tabbard. It’s been washed, now to iron and cut the…

Knitting: The random stash grab gave me this super soft alpaca in camo colors. I asked Jon if he’d wear something made of it. He felt of it and decided a hat would be good. So we’ll see how this pattern works out. So far I like how it’s spiraling…

Knitting: I’m really happy with how the dishcloth is coming out, and I love that the cotton is so soft. It’s not bad progress for only getting a few minutes a day at work. I’m working on a secret knitting project at home. Gaming: There few moments I can…

Knitting: The random grab into stash gave me this cushy purple cotton and I’ve been wanting another kitchen towel. So I hunted around and found this cute pattern. Plus, Jon approves and says it’s cute. Happy win! I also got a bit more done on the Timey…
