So much for number 1000....

I worked a bit on the Boysenberry felted socks last night, but not as much as I would like since I needed to de-clutter the sewing room. There are boys coming to sew garb on Friday and Sunday and I wanted to get a leg up on getting some of my things done, and clean up the debris. Mostly I got some linen ironed, picked up the room, put away some garb, threw away trash, got some boxes off the floor and did some general maintenance on one of the sewing machines.

P purchased a circa 1950's Singer portable off e-bay a few months ago. The belt was pretty well gone and the fly wheel kept slipping. I saw he bought a new belt so I replaced it, blew out the dust, oiled everything up and it works great. It's a little on the slow side, but certainly a functional machine. It will be a great loaner machine.

Tonight is Folk Moot so I will bring my socks with me and should have them ready to felt by the time I get home. I can, hopefully, hand them off to Niklos at the event on Saturday.

Edit: Done! Had to felt them twice, but they fit Padruig so they should fit Niklos. Yay!
