Yep, it was thrill-a-minute with Kotek deftly wielding a hammer and redoing the rivets on some armour he'd been sent. I would say excuse the pun, but what I really hope is that I have you all groaning in your seats as you read. I should have been a herald.
In addition to this worthy endeavour, he also showed off some German sleeves he has been working on - nice spiffy ones, all the better for fighting in.
In the mood for some plain sewing, I got on with a black wool partlet to go with my Flemish gear. The wool is a really good weight and lovely to work with. I also brought my lace with me but didn't quite get to it - however, it's a much better project to travel with than I would have expected. Soon I should have made enough lace to trim a coif, and will have thoroughly worn out my patience with that pattern.
Ludwig came along in the hopes of finding someone to fence with, it being absolutely glorious weather for the first time in a while. Sadly, it was to no avail as everyone else had other commitments. Ah well, there's always next weekend - and at least he got to try out the drumming app on William de Wyke's iPad.
