Re: New Boots!

Mine have a spine up the back (stitched onto the inside) which I thought in theory would make them easier to pull on, since it faces smooth-side in. That part worked, but it also makes a noticeable difference in support. In short...yes, it works.

Nicely done!

Re: What about a bit of rope? You'll want it, if you haven't got it: Well, I'll want it.

Looks great, and should be very serviceable--especially if it's genuine manila, and not just fraudulently branded sisal (which is all I've had any luck finding recently). Manila is apparently the best organic rope for wet applications, and excellent in most other regards as well. Agreed. Until mode...

Re: Today I learned a thing...

Moss and mushrooms in various forms both point to active rot...if you see mushrooms at the base of a tree or growing out of the side of a standing tree, don't set camp beneath and/or within striking distance of the tree, because it contains a rotting and/or hollow space which could compromise its st...

Re: Where Do You Get Your Wool?

The wool I used to make my cloak and hood was a Dark Grey Melton that is no longe in production. The supplier I've used for wool from Europe for my green winter tunic was https://www.wooltrade.cz/en/home/ The material I used from them would be an excellent winter-weight tunic or blanket, but I'd say...

Re: Numenorean design motifs

It's so funny...we all collectively thought that design looked wonky, but now that we see it on an actual piece, it totally works! Just like the carpet and the other motifs we've looked at...they seem odd in a drawing, but when they get embroidered onto something or scribed into leather, they come a...

Re: Plague Mask for Ranger

I have had the Masked Rangers in Ithilien stuck in my head this week as Indiana went to state-wide mandatory masks in public places. My persona isn't based there, but it's been mighty tempting to hood and cloak up just for an excuse to wear a different mask!
