I really debated doing and Ymir recap.

You see, I put off posting about my Twilight Sparkle inspired Norse that I made for the event thinking I would do a big Ymir Event/Project post.  It wasn’t like it was a super-secret project or anything but I was really pushing myself to finish it as well as a Norse ensemble for my husband and I didn’t take time to post about either of them.  But the event…well, let’s just say I have had better Ymirs.

While my husband looked smashing in his Norse I didn’t get any pictures (he was marshaling the heavy tournament all day) and I didn’t even get to wear mine.  I did wear my very warm, very nice wool jerkin, but I had to whip stitch it closed in the front because the fabric I had brought with me for finishing up the buttons made the most horrid, awful buttons that I would rather have sewn myself into it than spent one more moment making ugly buttons that I would just have had to remake anyway.  It wasn’t ideal (sewing the jerking closed meant it was a little poochy/bunchy in the front where it should have overlapped to button) but it worked, I was warm, and only one person noticed.

It was a very pretty Ymir.  It was cold and brisk and we had a light snowfall and flurries all day but it didn’t stick to anything.  The kind of snowfall that would have been great for pictures…if I had taken any.  I didn’t get to fight in the tournament like I had planned but I did get to watch my apprentice win it.  I participated in the White Scarf Challenge and got in a few pickups.  I was disappointed that the Black Sword Tourney was allowed to run opposite the White Scarf Challenge.

So, now I need to get pictures up of the Norse ensembles I finished and the completed jerkin.  I had hoped to get pictures done this weekend but it looks like it will be later this week (Wed, Thursday, or Friday).
