Use Bug Spray

No, really.

I have one on my thigh and three on my hands, too. So, yeah. Use that bug spray.

All Things Middle Eastern was great, and that makes me even sadder that the Shire of Brantestone is being dissolved and won’t put it on again for the foreseeable future. I was especially pleased to get to socialize with people I don’t see often, or who have been historically busy (like Duchess Deirdre, who is great, but completely intimidated me before this past weekend). I made lots of new friends and danced a whole lot, mostly where people could see me, and often solo. It was a growth  experience.

Feast was delicious. All organic, locally-farmed, and wonderful. Carrots with cardamom! I never would’ve thought to put those together, but they worked beautifully.

And I got to test the new garb bits. I think they worked well:

Not looking because I’m expected not to look. Even more not looking:

And I think this will be a new icon for LJ:

Goodness knows I post enough SCA-related stuff there to need one.

Next I need to work on a new choli (one that is not white) and a really fancy ghagra for court. And seaming the hems of my jama. Kingdom A&S is only two weeks away! Eek!

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.
