Team Angband Official chat room

I hope I got everything correct because different people kept writing to me different things. Guys please, I’d love you organize something by yourself for the team if there’s the interest, but next time I beg you to choose ONE user that write to me the infos, to avoid confusion.

Angband weekly group discussions
No room pw-on Thursdays (to give enough time for everyone to finish reading the sections for the week)
All day long
More structured/on topic discussion is specifically during the afternoon [tentatively set for 2pm-6pm] in GMT

IMPORTANT
anyone can drop by at anytime to say hi and talk about the Silm! We’re always looking forward to talking to all of the members! The scheduled times are just to give more structure for the discussion.
Your chat mods/admins are Melkor/askmorgoth/thejabberwocki & asunder/asunder/vyctoires (chatzy handle/read-along account/main)

Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
yarn
small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)
