A Scarf for Jon Snow

I do not care for Game of Thrones. Not one bit. Too many people. Too many storylines. No one seems particularly happy.

I suppose the same can be said for This is Us, but let’s not dwell on that.

Anyway, because I’m a really great wife, I bought tickets to the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience for my husband’s birthday last year. Yes, I made him wait 11 months for his birthday present. He’s impossible to buy for and it was the best I could do.

But this weekend was finally the weekend he was waiting for. Game time.

And as we sat and watched this concert, with dragons flying all around in snow-buried landscapes, and how cold everyone looked…. I started to wonder why there wasn’t anyone around going, “hey honey, before you leave to go slay this mythical beast, make sure you grab a scarf! Or a hat. Or SOMETHING.

They look so miserably cold all the time. And it was honestly concerning how few people thought to even cover their heads- do they know how much heat is lost by not doing so?!?!? I see people with hoods sometimes, but the hoods are never being used- probably because they’ll fall off when one gets to top speed on their horse.

Don’t look at me like I’m crazy. Jon Snow is never not running around with snow in his hair.

So I went home and continued work on a scarf I started recently and quickly tossed aside.

When it’s the weekend and your child wants to see what you’re working on. And then use it when it’s time for farm work to be done.

It’s the sedge stitch, a stitch easily learned from a Daisy Farm Crafts tutorial. The yarn is some leftover stuff I had sitting around. But, per usual, I horribly underestimated how much yarn is needed. And here it sits. Perhaps 60% complete.

What do I do??? Do I now have to go out and buy more of the yarn I was trying to get rid of? Should I just start a different color (like white or black maybe?) and pretend like I meant to make the scarf two-faced? Do I just unravel the whole stupid thing and just let the yarn I’ll never use sit until who knows when?

Seriously, I’m asking.

What a pain.

Perhaps this is why the Game of Thrones kids never have scarves on. They run out of yarn and shipping prices are likely exorbitant out wherever they are.

I guess I get it now.
