Good Day

I'm Ciara Eirikswif, nominally of the Barony of Sternfeld in the Middle Kingdom.

Love that song, and musicals. Anyway, I've been a member of the SCA for over twenty years. I've been fascinated by the fiber arts/textiles for closer to forty years.

I learned to embroider and sew as a child, followed by learning to crochet. When I worked at a living history museum, I learned to spin with a wheel and a drop spindle. I have both and prefer my Ashford Traveler to my spindles. I was taught to knit during secondary school, left the project withering on a set of aluminium needles for decades and relearned to knit around ten years ago.

I have a small yarn shop that travels to events which are dog friendly and can be found knitting in public most days of the week.

I'm Kathrin, MoAS in your neighboring Shire of Wurm Wald. We should play sometime!

I've got a contest I'm sponsoring at Grand Pageant on the first of November. Best, most accurate looking accessory using the least period materials available.

I had this flash back on a fighter many years ago who made carpet armor by cutting the carpeting into scales because it was free, he was a college student on a budget and he couldn't afford leather. It was pretty impressive looking.
