Been real busy for the past couple of months, mostly doing the Honey Do List. Got most of that completed and now finding some time back in the shop making all kind of things. This just so happens to be something that I can acroos from some place and maybe it was here on LJ.
I have been able to sell a few of them and that surprised me since I was thinking no one uses these any more but guess I was wrong. I think this is about the 5th one I have made.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and Happy New Year.

Thanks Tom, my friends laugh when I tell them we use to put light bulbs in our socks to darn them. This would have been so much better. Great job.

Beautifully made Tom, but does ANYONE, ANYWHERE still darn socks. The last time that I remember Marlene darning my socks was when I was in the RAF and socks in those days were pure wool, not like the ones we’ve had for so many years containing man made fibers.
