So, I finally finished my Winter is Coming scarf a week ago, with just hours to spare before the premier. Then I blocked it. Then I waited for it to dry. Then I removed the pins. Then...it decided to curl up like a snail. Not sure why this happened, but I'm trying to make the best of it. It actually looks quite chic, sort of.

But anyway, this was the first time I had attempted Fair Isle knitting, ad it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I used Blue Sky Alpaca worsted cotton yarn (2 skeins tulip and 1 skein granite). It turned out super long; I'd say at least six feet if not longer.

And now, for photos!

The entire scarf

My cat Thom got to be my unwitting model. He was not amused.

And the pattern for the direwolf in case anyone wants it

That looks so awesome! I love seeing Game of Thrones craft projects and I'm always envious of those who can do colorwork. As far as the curling goes, I'm not much of a knitter, but it's my understanding that stockinette stitch curls on the edges because the front part of the stitch is a little wider than the back. Still, you're right, I think it does look kind of cool that way.

Thanks, guys, y'all're so sweet! omgitsalisa (almost name twins!), that's a good theory, but I have no idea. When I remember, I'm going to try to block it again and see if that helps, but if not, it's fine.
