Out in the sharp end, I’m a Network Engineer and Techie-At-Large, and a while back I decided I was spending just a little too much time at the keyboard. Being also a SCAdian, I thought it would be good to have a hobby related to that and something I could take with me to events to fiddle with during the times when I’m not in search of a good Bardic. My girlfriend agreed with the idea and gave me a selection of tools.

And then I got a bonus at work and bought a ton more :)

Anyway, this blog evolved mainly as a place for me to keep track of things I have learned that someone else may find useful – like not stabbing yourself in the finger with your stitching awl.
