  • What? Boys sewing? Shocking I tell you.

    As the late great Fred Dibnah said:

    "Teaching boys to bake cakes? That's no way to maintain an industrial empire."

    OK, I have to come out on that one. When I was 11 years old I could knit. We knitted our own custom woolly bobble hats to wear on fishing trips. It's something I kept quite about for decades. Then recently I learned that young snowboarding dudes also knit their own woolly hats.

    erco,
    ...what if I'm a hardware guy, trapped in a software guy's body?
    Easy, just write HDL for FPGAs and ASICs :)

    I couldn't afford most of their stuff, but a company named Frostline Kits sold affordable DIY gear. I sewed lots of kits making booties, gaiters, jacket and even a tent! I still have the 60/40 jacket I sewed over 40 years ago, works great.

    That's really cool! Thanks for the link - great stuff - I wish some of the kit stuff would come back. I know there are still some great kits out there for all sorts of stuff. It is great idea.

    I had to get this vintage gaiter kit. Almost as rare as an unbuilt Heathkit!
