A few weeks ago it was finally time. My first viking event. I had my kit (thank you Rabbie!), my lucky dragon (thank you again!), a handy leather pouch perfect for my inhaler and even a pair of historically accurate shoes.
I had to sock it up, or admit de-feet, and nalbind myself a pair of socks. Going from a round coaster like shape, to a sock, was quite the jump, but I think it was a sock-cess.
i managed not to sock-umb to the siren call of SSS (second sock syndrome) and with a fair bit of effort, my feet where ready for the show!
Having that thick, plush material makes the shoes so much more comfortable. I didn’t realise just how much support modern shoes gave to even the soles of your feet.
Alright, that’s all for toe-night, a short post as it’s been a bit of a long week. I shall leave you with a close up of the Oslo stitch, one of many, many nalbinding stitches, and it’s lovely plump texture.
Until next week, stay safe!
(No wool count this week as no changes)
