Not sure why I felt the need to put up that picture, but I did.

For those who want to, is next Wednesday good for the first stitch&bitch gathering at my house? There'll be tea (and coffee), and I can make scones or cookies.

I really, really love Captain Jack. eee!

ETA: Can anyone think of a sheep-related kniting pun? I'd like to put something on this: Image hosted by Photobucket.com, but I'm drawing a blank.
So I'm pretty much done my icon for The Warlord Chronicles (The Winter King, Enemy of God, Excalibur), by Bernard Cornwell. It's probably going to be too big already, but I'm tempted to try and fit more characters into it (ooh, Merlin, Sagramor and Aelle!)

But first, my (abbreviated) cast for The Warlord Chronicles.

Arthur--- Gerard Butler )

Derfel--- Nikolaj Coster-Waldau )

Nimue--- Keira Knightly )

Ceinwyn---Miranda Otto )

Guinevere---Sarah Polley )

Lancelot---Orlando Bloom )

Galahad--- Joel Edgarton )

Tristan--- Ioan Gruffudd )

Iseult---Anne Hathaway )

To celebrate my new job, I bought myself a Foot Soldier with War Hammer. I have christened him Dagonet.

I love all of the Schleich knights figures. I've been eyeing them for the past year and a bit; I finally caved.

Finished reading Enemy of God, and oh my. Lancelot is such a cowardly ass. I may have to rethink my fake casting of Orlando Bloom in this role, because there is no way that he could ever be this assy.


I'm taking a bit of a break before reading the third book. Will take in some Pratchett, maybe Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell before finishing. So, so good.

I just read the story of Tristan and Iseult in Cornwell's Warlord Chronicles, and oh my god. Cornwell doesn't pull any punches with this story.

Cornwell has said that this series is the favourite out of everything he's written, and I have to agree with him.

spoilerish rambling about the Tristan/Iseult episode )

Don't know why, but I've been making a Warlord Chronicles trilogy icon. I may need someone to animate it for me, at some point.

So far:
Nik = Derfel (you expected differently?)
Keira (as Guinevere) = Nimue
Miranda Otto (as Eowyn) = Ceinwyn
Joel Edgarton (as Gawain) = Galahad (it's a little hard for me to disassociate this one, but woah. It feels so right.)
Orlando = Lancelot

Still need to find my Guinevere, Arthur, Merlin and Sagramor. And an Igraine.

Erm. This book is taking over my brain.

Dude, it's been exactly a year since I made this icon.
So. Much. Loff.

Seriously. To think that at first I hated King Arthur so, so much. So. Much.

And now? I love. Heh.
