This weekend was wild, and I don’t remember a lot of it, except for the part on Saturday where I got real busy and then my mom showed up (in garb) and then we went to court and ate dinner and somewhere in there I became the Baronial A&S Champion. Oh, and judged my first A&S entry.

So. In the interest of showcasing those lovely scrolls that go home with people and are never seen again, here’s the lovely scroll I got, created by Lord Cynwrig (who is the jolliest fellow I know):

Look at it. Just look at it. I am so fond of this, firstly because it’s the first ever scroll I’ve received (there’s a long story behind my AoA and the novelty scroll I got and then the real scroll that never happened), but also because it tickles that design part of my brain, being all calligraphy and absolutely gorgeous at that.

Did you see that capital A? Did you? Well, here it is, closer:

Makes me all weak in the knees, that does. And then because I wanted proof for posterity and documentation purposes, here’s my SCA name plus the part about the being of the Champion bit:

Hee hee. I best get on that bookbinding project, and now seems like a good time to figure out how to create a tassel belt for when it is warm again.  I have an inkling as to how that might be accomplished, but I need to experiment. This involves nails and a 1×6 board. Aren’t you intrigued? Well, you should be.

This week, though, involves making some more chaupar pieces and teaching both that and Goats and Tigers at the meeting on Wednesday. My goal is for Indians in the SCA to be even more insidious than the Persians. We’re secretly everywhere, you know. Or we will be. When you least expect it.

Thanks to Their Excellencies and to all in the Barony who suggested I might be a good candidate. I will do my best to honor the position for as long as I hold it.

(I’ll post photos of the stripey pants as soon as I find someone who took pictures; I was so crazy busy that I didn’t get any of my own)

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.
