I've moved my knitting stuff into this new room in Dar Anahita because i was getting too many visitors to keep using the old entrance. I hope this new arrangement makes things more comfortable for you, my guest.
What's in the rest of the house? Well, i've got a kitchen full of Medieval recipes and another visitor's room with information about clothing of the Medieval Near and Middle East. There's other stuff packed into other rooms here at Dar Anahita - some embriodery, a few brief essays on Medieval Middle Eastern topics, and more - which you can visit, too.
But you're probably here about the knitting, so below is a list of what i've got packed in here.
And, thanks for dropping by!
Unfortunately, while i was getting ready to load my friend's van to go to Beltane, in May of 2000, someone stole a whole bunch of my camping gear and SCA stuff off my secluded front porch. *All* my knitting, except my pouch, was taken. Also taken was almost all my garb which, while not fancy, was comfy and much hand sewn. There was also some stuff i'd woven and some wool i'd natural dyed. And camping stuff, including a wooden collapsible table and more. To replace it all would take a few thousand dollars - there was no one expensive item, but i added up the cost of all the equipment, the materials, and my time. I am certain that the guy who took it thought he was getting valuable yuppie stuff. I bet he was pissed when it only turned out to be my used SCA costumes, my hand-weaving, and knitting... I'm sure he tossed it in a dumpster with a curse.
