Pennsic Landgrab starts today, and I sent Jehan to enjoy the event. I cannot go this year simply due to having to finish school over the next 6 weeks. Graduation is this saturday, and thankfully he will be able to be home for that. Over the past week-ish, I have been frantically mending and making things for him and others for Pennsic. Now that that work is done, I can continue on to my personal projects. I have printed off as much research as I could for my knitting research paper, and I hope to have much of it read through over the next two weeks. I am also hoping to finish up mending my red sideless surcoat and mend the first T-tunic I ever made. While I have somewhat upgraded my garb to boddices and Irish stepdresses, I like to keep my other garb for back up. I have a feeling it might come useful for Pennsic next year.
I will admit the best part of this internship is being able to work on my projects at work. during media time, I have the ability to teach, and work on my own projects. I want to start teaching knitting at events, and this is the best time for me to practice teaching others. The other big thing that I am loving is while I do have homework, I have more time to myself in the evenings, and can relax, instead of studying and completing projects everyday for class. I am starting to think about taking up a chancelor minor position in my local group/where ever I end up moving after graduation. Not sure how that will end, but I am hoping I will find my nitch/place in the SCA a lot better if I hold a position and can get the inner workings of it under my belt.
I wish everyone who is going to Pennsic a safe pilgrimage and have fun,
