These two guys have joined their brothers in arms.

Painting figures is fun and a welcome change: the hand motions are different from knitting. This is another RPG-related new thing R has shown me.

By the way, the guy on the left has a bird attached to his hat. Neither of us could figure out why — pidgeons for carrying mail were transported in cages. But hey, this is fantasy, they can do whatever they want. No matter that the poor bird would be dead by the time the soldiers reached their destination.

Back to knitting.

The Landsknecht hose are 8.5 cm long now and still slow going. Today I cast on the second Cloverleaf and have knit five pattern repeats.
