Game Of Thrones Inspiration

It's been a long wait; nearly a year in fact.

Hubby and I started watching Game Of Thrones early in 2013 after I gave him Season One for Christmas 2012. After the first ten episodes we were hooked; we tore through Season Two then watched Season Three whilst it aired on HBO last March. When that was over (much too quickly), it seemed like April 2014 was so far off...

But here we were; finally at the weekend of Season Four's premiere!

In preparation for this momentous occasion, we decided to have a GOT marathon. However, I was surely not committed to spending hours on end without something productive to do... so I went into my stash of wool and pulled out 11 skeins that would eventually become a thick comfy throw.

While we only got half-way through the first three seasons (well, life does get in the way of 30 solid hours of epic betrayal, dragons, gore, magic, sex, evil, wolves and numerous sword fights) I am just completing my third skein in my GOT throw (62" wide and 20" long so far):

I felt like Old Nan clicking away...

Good thing I recorded the Season Four premiere... it looks like we need another weekend to finish our grand marathon. Then on to the current offerings of medieval mayhem.

Fingers crossed I finish my project by the end of this year's episodes.


  1. Fun stuff, we just bought season 3, but have started to rewatch the entire set. Talk about a marathon!!! {we also read the books first} have not be disappointed in the movies, they are doing a good job on them.

  2. I keep hearing people talk about this show but haven't seen it since I steer clear of gore. Maybe I should take up crocheting again so I have an excuse to look away during the icky parts.
    Love the color of your throw!

  3. This is yet another show everyone watches but me!

  4. It's looking good! I guess I'm not the only one who hasn't watched this, I feel so out of it when it comes to what's hot to watch. Glad you're enjoying it.


Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you were by. I appreciate and read with delight each and every comment!
