Socks

Vertical striped socks


I picked up a pair of these at Estrella 2010. It took me a while but I finally found a supplier for these lovely socks available online: Sock Dreams. They are a bit thin. I wear these with a simple wool garter.



My fall-back socks (and the ones I wear when it’s cold) are some lovely Wool socks I got a long while ago from Hamilton Dry goods. Over-the-knee with no heel. Fits even large legs. I dyed a pair with tea and love love love them. I wear these with a simple wool garter. Sadly it doesn’t look like Hamilton sells these any more. I’ll need to look for a new supplier.

Recently I’ve heard of http://socksamerica.com/ they have linen and wool over the knee socks. Some with vertical stripes. I’ve not yet purchased any.


Shoes
I bought a pair of these The Landsknecht, cowmouth, bear paw, kuhmaul shoe from Boots by Bohemond at Estrella 2010. Then I lost 50 lbs and my feet shrunk out of the shoe. I sold those to a friend and bought the same shoe again in a smaller size. If you do buy them, I recommend you get the no-slip sole otherwise they’re a bit slick.

While you’re on Bohemond’s site you might also want to pick up a hawking pouch and a bestecke (eating set hung from belt)

walnut_cardsWooden Tablet weaving cards I love the size and feel of the wooden cards from the seller Ampstrike on Etsy. Well worth the cost. I have purchased these in Walnut(2 sets), Padouk and Oak. The different colors make them easy to setup on the loom to make counting out a pattern very easy. The wood is very smooth and working on them is a total pleasure.

Accessories
I’ve purchased quite a few pennanulars from Thorthor’s Hammer and have lovingly fondled a lot of his other items.

My Kentish Anglo-Saxon brooches are from Raymond’s Quiet Press.
