I should have been a Blue Peter presenter

I made me a swift!

I started by using these instructions, but as I went on it mutated into my own design - it's a great deal sturdier than the original and is easy to dismantle and store. I've been winding skeins all day and giggling about how much fun it is, sad but true!

I also finished the other posh sock

Pattern: My own one size fits Badger pattern (1x1 rib for 1", short row heel, flat toe)

Needles: Inox grey dpn's 2.5mm

Yarn: Posh Yarns sock yarn, colour "Hothouse" (exclusive to sock club members)

Next time I get a package from posh yarns, I think I'll try their free pattern. It's such lovely yarn to knit with that I'm really glad I joined and can't wait to see what the next colours are going to be!
