You’ve now created a sock with a sort of nipple in it through which the line protrudes and you can never loose the end again and nor can little bits unwind around the edges. I’ve sent you cellphone pic Pete. Peter Coetzee 12 November, 2015 at 21:33 - ReplyEd! where did you send the pic? You have my 071 number?
