Things I have learned

Over the past two days:

1. I need to pin the fabric to the paper before trying to trace the pattern. This should be a no-brainer and yet here I am.

2. Salwar kameez are really frigging comfortable. No, really.

3. Nothing de-stresses an 8th quarter design student like copious amounts of sugar in the form of Greek pastries.

4. Harvard Business Review is the opposite of boring.

And that’s pretty much it for the time being. I’m working on a stamp design for some of the fabric I’m making into a ghagra. I would like to embroider it, but I can’t get all that done by July 17. If I do the design properly, I should be able to embroider over the top of it. If not, then I’ll just get some more fabric and try again. It’s cotton, so fairly cheap. The choli has been patterned and I hope to cut it out tomorrow evening. This will no doubt involve lots of cursing, so it’s good that I’ll be working on it at home.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
