Beautiful darning egg

I ordered an egg from Socko, having decided to try a few repairs to socks and tights. A box arrived 2 days after my order, containing a perfect wooden egg, needle and thread/yarn. Really good service and the egg is a pleasure to hold. Just need to practice darning now. Thank you.

I'm so pleased to hear it's set to be put to work Sara. Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely review.
