Was it just me?
Did any of you notice in between the phwoooorrrr moments of delicious long-haired-hero-action....
...The drippy queen's knitted capelet??
A knitting phwoooorrr....!
Oh by the way - there was another capelet - this time a lady in waiting. Not sure of the historic correctness of the costumes and fabrics - but who cares!
So, in the interest of all things knitting and thanks to Ravelry - there are similar capes here, here, here, and here.
And the programme? The rather good 'The Last Kingdom' on the BBC, based on a book by Bernard Cornwell.
