I have done something I thought was impossible for me.
I have perfected the art of Quick Garb (TM). Oh, yes. Let me show you it:
(Yeah, I know – it’s basically a big pile of blue fabric with some yellow pants; use your imagination)
That there is a mughal coat/dress (I forget the exact word, but it’s basically a ladies’ jama) and a pair of churidar.
The churidar took an hour, start to finish. The top, two so far (i have some more finishing to do). They’re not fancy, but they’re wearable. This one will be a little weird because I was working out the front closure and didn’t quite get it. But I will. And now I have grubby garb, so I don’t get my silk one all gross when I help people glue books together tomorrow! Win!
Hooray for 1-hour pants.
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.
