TTMT 46 - Nuthin', I've got nuthin'

Here's a pic of my son with his Dr. Who scarf.  Pardon the messy background.

Yep, Tom Baker, the 4th doctor, and several different versions of that scarf. My brother actually crocheted one for himself years ago that was 20 feet long. It looks like it was a success, he seems to really like it!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the last GoT book has been "in progress" for many years now. Some fans think George RR Martin will never finish it because of all his side projects. I read all the books so far, and watched the first season of the TV show but I decided I just didn't enjoy it enough to watch any more, thought I know so many folks are just nuts over it, but I just didn't dig it.

Oh shoot!!! I was hoping I was about through!

I know, they are long aren't they. You put all that work in and then learn there's supposed to be one more book and he hasn't gotten around to finishing it.

I haven't read the books and the show is too much for me to see. But glad your loving GoT. Love the scarf

What a great barter and a great scarf!

I read the first several GoT books years ago but have been waiting to reread them until he finishes the last one, which I fervently hope he does!

He had better!

Fun scarf :D (And fun trade!)

I've been refusing to read A Song of Ice and Fire for as long as the show has been around BECAUSE they're not finished yet - I hate having to wait for the next book in any series and George RR Martin seems to take longer and longer between each book. (Also, I believe there are supposed to be 7 books total - I'm not sure how many are out already though!)

I just finished the 5th book and am hoping they release the next one (or two) in the next decade.

Sounds like you've got a realistic timeline ;D I think Martin has too much money - if he was a broke and starving author, his publisher would be like, 'Turn the book in by Date X or you can return your full $30000 advance on Date X' and then he'd turn the book in. But he's not a broke and starving author, so maybe he doesn't request an advance and if he doesn't, maybe he's just like... 'Okay, here's the money. I'll call you when it's ready.'

My husband and I were discussing that very thing 2 nights ago. Martin has gotten so full of himself he is spending very little time writing. And he complains that the fans are pressuring him to get back to work. He's been spending a lot of time watching the filming of the shows and seeing his "vision" come to life.

Yeah, I think he's really enjoying the glory of having such a hit show, and he deserves to enjoy it, at least a little bit, but if you want to be an author, you need to actually write! :D

The scarf looks great. Gotta love a nice swap! I have one of those about 1/4 done with all of the yarn and the partially-completed scarf in a box in my craftroom. Looking forward to seeing your quilt!
