socks..and more socks!!!

'Lewis' was really good last night...i managed to get upto and including the gusset decreases. so the way im going i maybe wearing the socks by friday.....i hope so as i cant wait to get knitting with my new fyberspates sock yarn.
in the meantime iv got my design head on n am gonna have a go at doing a few patterns as well as repairing/making a new yarn swift...mine is really poorly. its quite old n bought off ebay a while ago, one of the three arms have come away from the main body. so iv consulted stepson (who did woodwork at school unlike me) n he agrees with my design...having a square of wood with 4 arms of wood 'hinged'(if i can find hinges small enough that is) to the base. then the whole thing to rotate on a nail attached to a larger block of wood or g clamp. very crude design but if it does the job i dont care. esp as iv got at least 2 skeins that need winding....and with a trip to nottingham coming up there maybe more!!!!!
so i think a trip to b&q tomorrow is in order....
