The final season of Game of Thrones is almost here, and we couldn't be more excited! Finally, we will find out who (or what?!) will claim the Iron Throne, and in honor of what will surely be an epic final battle, we have decided to revive the past Lorna's Laces Limited Edition colors! And, of course, Rachel Roden of Unraveled Designs is back to do a final Mystery Knit-Along inspired by the show and all the beloved/reviled characters we have come to love/hate!
While the characters on show might be a little polarizing, the gorgeous Lorna's Laces colors certainly are not! This time they have created a splattershot version of each of the five previous colors, which are perfectly packaged into a String Quintet. Beginning with the icy shades of Beyond the Wall, followed by the muted blues of Winter is Coming, and then the crisp greens of Queen of Thorns, the string quintet then transitions to the vibrant reds and oranges of Fire and Blood and finishes with the deeper reds of Casterly Rock. Since each one happens to represent one of the main contenders for the throne (ok, not Queen of Thorns, but we figured 4 out of 5 isn't bad!) it really is the perfect way to commemorate this final season!
And, of course, GoT super fan and designer Rachel Roden of Unraveled Designs has whipped up an amazing shawl design that uses all of those speckled minis to perfection. Paired with a solid main color, and using advanced beginner mosaic color work, this year's MKAL is great for TV knitting, but also has some more intricate spots to keep your interest peaked. The kit also includes the Ravelry download code for the Shawl of Ice and Fire MKAL. Not into the mystery so much? We created a spoiler page for you to check out what the shawl looks like before committing!
