So busy

I will get back to blogging, but my life went KABOOM and now I have no time and did I mention FarScape (I think I did, repeatedly), so there you go.




It has seriously sapped all my blog energy, and by it I mean Twitter, not Hrithik Roshan being on twitter.

And then, I made some garb and here are some pictures of it, but not of the whole thing:

Mostly the dupatta in this picture, which is lovely and not something I made. But I look not bad here, so it’s up. There in the background are my lovely assistant, Don (Don don don don) and His Excellency, Baron Cathal.

Another view, with some of my shiny shiny silk outfit. One of the rare times the dupatta actually stayed on my head (I have not gotten the hang of this). Also here are Guillaume and family, Don, His Excellency, Belthora, and a gentleman whose name I cannot remember (but I think it’s Geoffrey).

Standing with Their Excellencies after being named Baronial Art and Science Champion. I thin I had stopped weeping uncontrollably at this point. My pants are hidden behind that gentleman’s head. I will have to put on the outfit just for a photo. Also here are THL Andreva, who is making an announcement (and has an awesome hat), Their Excellencies, a Mistress of the Laurelate (whose name I forget, but who I do remember is a Laurel!), THL Mikal Isernfocar, Lady Lucia, and Maya (who probably has a title, too, but I can’t remember it). And another person with a camera who I do not know.

And this is before that other picture, when I was remembering being reminded to curtsy to Their Majesties and Her Highness, and apparently my weeping had Her Majesty weeping, as well. Score.

Dang, that outfit is shiny. Yessssssss.

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.

    Graceful shmaceful; graceful women are women who cheat and get away with it. Their combs are just that well-hidden!

    Are bobby pins an option? Things never stay on my head, either, and I think that it’s a pretty universal problem. I’m sure ancient women had their versions of hair pins.

      Evidently it’s something a “graceful” woman can do – futz with the veil and not look like an idiot.

      However, a friend of mine uses those little comb clips (toupee clips), which she sews directly into her veil. Those seem to work pretty well.
