Knitting Pattern: The Hateful knit!

I haven't seen The Hateful Eight yet but I did see enough screenshots to notice the awesome knitwear on the characters.

This is a start of a multi-part series from the Hateful Eight I'm hoping.

This pattern is for Samuel L Jackson's character Major Marquis Warren, he wears a long manly scarf that wraps around so many times!

I wasn't really sure what to call this scarf pattern....The Hateful Knit...The Scarf-ful Eight...The Handknit weight?

C1K: Chaldra Chaldra Chaldra...

I'm not fond of the method used to begin this novel, however that is likely because I've read so many that use it lately. We get some explanation of the world with a little shock and awe for the masses, but it's slow. Despite that the verbiage is quite beautiful.

Once we start into the story it's quite engaging and fun. I quite like both of the characters we deal with and see them both grow as people in a single chapter.

We have an adventure at hand with a few mysteries in a backdrop of sexiness. I am intrigued by what I will find around the next corner!

Crochet Pattern: Do cowls stay awake all night?

I've been hunkered down this week, enjoying the snow and lots of knitting and crocheting.

I had a ball of Loops and Threads Impeccable, in a pretty pastel multi colourway. It is a soft yarn that goes thick and thin, making it really interesting visually.

I wanted to make something loose and airy yet still soft and warm, so I grabbed a crochet hook and had a go.

I came out with a lovely, loose and soft cowl that looks like superkid icecream!

Good News! I have acquired four more players which means the HackMaster campaign will resume!

Due to new Player negotiations this also means we are moving to MONDAY NIGHTs sometime after 5:30PM. Games will be held at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

This time we had a meat lover's pizza with the pepperoni removed and phillycheesesteak meat added. This was another night of board gaming due to lack of sufficient HackMaster Players. We played two games of Nuclear war and a game of Acquire.

We had a medium chicken & green pepper pizza and this was another night of board gaming due to lack of sufficient HackMaster Players. This report filed as a place holder.

We played two more sessions of Settlers of Catan followed by a round of the Dr. Who card game.

It's 3 o'clock, do you know where your fiber is?

This past week I've started/worked on a pair of mittens, a blanket, 2 hats, and 3 cowls.

What do I have from all that work?
1 hat and 2 cowls.

I think Knitting/Crocheting is the only craft that you can spend hours on and end up with nothing at the end. This phenomenon isn't from extremely slow stitching, but from my tendency to rip things out when they aren't perfect.

I've been remiss on my pizza reporting. Needless to say we had a large Philly Cheesesteak pizza.

This was another night of board gaming due to lack of sufficient HackMaster Players.

We Played Avalon Hill's (under the auspices of Hasbro) "History of the World". This is one of those games if you are last place in one turn you get to pick first on the following turn and hand off to another Player what you picked if you did not like it.

C1A: There's no high-loveseat?

I finally started reading High Couch of Silistra again, deciding to re-read chapter one so I could re-acquaint myself with the story and characters.

We immediately meet Estri, an extremely high-class courtesan/geisha type figure.

I'm enjoying the language so far, the linguistics of it seem very elvish to me. The words are flowy, Estri..Silistra..Astria. It's very sensual.

This was another night of board gaming due to lack of sufficient HackMaster Players.

We Played two games of Settler of Catan. Same scenario "Into the Desert (III)", but with the newer edition that was a large hexagon not a square. The Player who runs the characters Huang & Honda won the first game, and I won the second.

Since I did not get to run History of the World, I plan on running it Tomorrow.

[2016-01-21] RPG Review of Darkly Through the Labyrinth

[Pre-Release Review PDF]

The first thing to note is the stunning visual artwork on the cover and throughout. Next is the layout which is impeccable and fits the feel of the game perfectly. It's easy to read and a pleasure on the eyes.

Me, I'm not big into reading PDFs, so I printed this out for the review.

The small book includes a table of contents, a lovely index, and a character sheet. What's missing is a sample adventure but perhaps a quickstart/convention style booklet would do wonders at some point.

The meat of the book is separated into four chapters.
