Pledge Me Your Word

Pledge Me Your Word

The Color: This colorway likes to mix it up a little bit, with thicker stripes of cantaloupe orange and honeydew green with thinner stripes of electric blue in between. It’s like a citrus disco for your knitting! The Name: Honor is one of the most important aspects of being a knight. To lose one’s honor is one of the worst things to happen to a knight. Honor can be lost in several ways, but not keeping one’s word or honoring an oath that has been made is a grave offense. A knight truly means it if he agrees to pledge his word...

Luf Talkyng

Luf Talkyng

The Color: This downright stunning four-stripe sequence encompasses the Lunete (pale orchid purple-pink), Orkney (icy aqua-blue), Sir Gromer Somer Joure (bright yellow-green), and Dindrane (lavender-violet purple) colorways. It’s like a spring bouquet in yarn form, and it’ll woo you every time! The Name: Luf Talkyng is a phrase used by Lady Bertilak in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight when she is trying to seduce Gawain. She tries using flattery on him and tells him what a fabulous reputation he has for how he treats women. She wants him to teach her luf talkyng (love talking), or how to woo someone. The ironic part is that she seems to need no teacher...

Windows of the Knights

Windows of the Knights

The Color: This colorway is like a stained glass window: it contains a background of black stripes with alternating hot fuchsia, bold blue-purple, and electric aqua blue. The Name: Because this colorway reminds me of stained glass, I researched stained glass windows with King Arthur as the subject. I discovered the existence of King Arthur's Great Halls in Tintagel. This hall was built in the 1930s as the home of the Order of the Fellowship of the Knights of the Round Table of King Arthur. Today, the building is a tourist destination. But one of the most remarkable parts of this building is the...

Tarabil

Tarabil

The Color: This color is two stripes of pure magic: deep, richest black pairs with the bold blue-purple of the Tintagel colorway for a winning combination. The Name: When Uther falls in love with Igraine, she is already married to Duke Gorlois. To protect his wife from the king, Gorlois puts her in the castle at Tintagel and he goes to the castle Tarabil. Uther lays siege to Tarabil, but one night (with the help of Merlin), Uther goes to Igraine at Tintagel, disguised as her husband. That night, they conceive Arthur and Gorlois is killed at the battle at Tarabil.

Sword in the Stone

Sword in the Stone

The Color: A bright and bold combination of neutral black and medium steel grey with bright sunshine yellow, this colorway will brighten up your sock knitting (and might just be perfect for the Steelers fan in your life). The Name: When Uther Pendragon was killed in battle, he seemingly had no heirs as very few people were aware that his son Arthur had been taken away by Merlin and placed with another family for fostering. To determine who would be the next king, a challenge was set: a sword had been found set within a stone and whoever could pull that sword...
