I finished the book last week. What can I say? I loved it.
It was my first time reading and learning the entire Arthurian legend. I had heard bits and pieces of it, and new the "big" parts..but nothing in depth like the book explained.
This was my first time reading Mists of Avalon, and I thought I got a great deal out of it..but the questions and thoughts posted by all of you have really deepened my reading. I realize that I just scratched the surface with this story.
I will read it again someday..and I am now interested in reading the other books in the series.
Also, I started another project..you may recall I made the socks in the Camelot colorway..but I wanted to something a bit more accurate for this KAL.
So I started this adorable little tunic:
It's not purple, it is actually a beautiful dark blue...I picked it because it made me think of the clothes the priestesses wore.
Here is what I hope is a better detail to the top, there is a cool twisted stitch that travels up the body, and the right side is in reverse stockinette..there are also cables running up the side of the chest.
It is a really fun knit, and very fast. I am hoping I will have it done in time for our KAL deadline!
I got the pattern at:
Wish me luck in finishing! And happy knitting and reading!
