Soon to be garb…

But first, an edit for last post – the colorway is Prometheus Moth (thanks, Sandy!)

The anniversary was lovely, and we both overate. We have been to Fanoos now, though, and it is lovely. I plan on repeating that experience (but with hookas and around the short tables next time).

And there was fabric shopping! Progress on the Mughal garb continues. I have gotten it mostly to where it fits, although now I’m trying to figure out how it should fasten so that I can remove it (it is very fitted and if I stitch the front seam, I will be unable to put it on/take it off). But it is progressing. I am hoping to get it finished by Twelfth Night. Ha. We shall see. At any rate, I have all the fabric I need:

The red is the top, the gold will be striped churidar (I have a picture of this and it will be awesome, but I may have to be creative with the cutting and sewing as they only had 2 yards of fabric left), and the medallions will be a coat. I am really really excited to get this done. I will have to shop and find some white wool for a dupatta/shawl. Gail K was closed yesterday, though, so I’ll have to do that later.

Wheeee. I’ve never been so excited about garb, like, ever.

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.
