…and you drink a little too much and try a little too hard. And you go home to a cold bed and think, That was fine. And your life is a long line of fine. Flynn, Gillian. Gone Girl.  (via wordsnquotes)

I’ve spent the last fifteen years of my life slowly amassing a ludicrously expansive collection of inspirational instrumental music to back the epic fantasy novel that’s always being written in the back of my mind. So much so that when I sat down and decided to make a “Swashbuckling Fantasy Music” playlist, I had to split it into four parts. Here for your listening pleasure is the final part!
If you play D&D, or if you’re writing a sprawling genre saga, or if you just really, really like listening to beautiful soundtrack-style music, I made this playlist for you.

EPIC INSPIRATION FANTASY PLAYLIST ❧ ACT IV: WINTER
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ― Lewis Carroll
Sample Songs: Journey of Solitude, Moribound Tree and the Toad, Elba

YESSSS. is this the first you’re attempting to knit (sew? stitch? crochet? jury rig? idk)? and I was referring more to the tendency to fly by the seat of one’s pants, but, yes, I think you can guess which of my projects might be smoking rn. xD

Oh, not at all! I’ve been knitting for years, but this is a new technique I’m using and did not account for a couple new things. This is technically also the second design in this theme, but I also need to finish/tweak the first one, as well.

/sensing a theme here yet?

ahaha, you and me both. but what was the pattern meant to look like?

One of a growing set of secret Arthurian/Celtic patterns! :P

(no, but I will post the picture that inspired me along with the finished pattern—which hopefully won’t take me terribly long to finish.)

What projects are puffing up smoke (or blowing up) in your face? Or can I guess at that, heh?

wait, what?

Working on a sweater of my own design and flying by the seat of my pants, as per usual, and it mildly blew up in my face?

augh….oh gosh, I HATE doing that. ******tea/sympathy******

The tearing back is really my fault for not doing a trial of the motif after teaching myself this new cabling technique? And it wasn’t because I did anything wrong, per say (though the design did need tweaking), but that the cabling technique for closed cables adds 5 extra stitches you want to start a new cable and I hadn’t accounted for the extra TEN when I initially made the design (because I didn’t know about it then!)

In all honesty, it’s actually a really neat design technique, and one that makes all my wildest Celtic knotwork and spiral design ideas suddenly very possible, and I really wish I could remember who gave me this cabling book so I could thank them profusely? (it was probably my mother, in which case I rescind my statement, but that’s a whole ‘nother bucket of worms.)

I’ve got a fae girl I will probably just exalt unless someone else wants her? Her colors just aren’t quite my cup of tea.

Brocaeron, which is based off the Welsh brocio aeron for “Poke Berry”. She’s clown rose/spring green/black, and she’ll be grown up in two days, so here is a preview of her as an adult:

4-5k for whoever wants her, otherwise once she’s an adult I will exalt her because I need more space in my lair for new eggs and I am unsure I will gather 90kT in four days?

Either send an ask here, or send a crossroads to atomicpen #78224 on FR for her—would love to see her go to a good home and NOT be exalted, because that’s what I’ll be doing if no one wants her, so I’d rather not see her go to another lair just for fodder.

Reblogging on the main blog because I dont have a lot of followers on my FR one, and I don’t want anyone who might want this girl to miss out just because of that fact?
