Timeline / Details
2018-07-30 Got note of a pair of socks in
transit. LW socks arrived three weeks ago. When I
get five socks to work with I'll start fixing. I
hope people from Europe send their socks, so that
we can get a trans-atlantic sock repair &
exchange going. Got a novel request to photograph
a pair of socks at the Trump Tower.
2018-07-08 *Yli-Vakkuri is an apprentice SockSmith
mentored by MA Minttu Sipola. Photo added. Someone
leaked news of the service. No biggie.
