Socks perfected

16 August 2011

My were pretty good but with my latest pair I have well and truly nailed the perfect sock, and proved that simple is best. No more baggy-toe, foot-wriggling-into-too-tight-sock, heel-slipping-down – just comfy socks. Here is the updated… Read more

Space invaders cushion

26 October 2010

On and off the needles in February

9 February 2010
