Ye Oldee Sock Darning Tips D'Hubert


Seekst thou a yarn for to fix your sorry, ravelled socks? Old Hubert says forgeteth not the ball of wool that thou - with a mind for to bind red tails for pike and perch lures - did purchase at a car boot sale yonks hence. For verily, sayeth Hubert, verily it doth work right well: one's cloth├Ęd heels full snugly praise y'r industry when wrapped therein.

    I've always said you're a great story teller, but that's some yarn!
    Sorry I'll get my coat.

  3. Thank you, Le Loup, you're very kind. It's been years<span> since I darned a sock and, while I can't say I enjoyed it a whole lot, I do now have a pair of socks rather than another entry on a shopping list of things I can't afford to buy. </span>

    SBW: groan!
