Me: Thank you! *Grins and leans over conspiratorially* There are two socks in there.
The last time I did this style, all my socks were intact and I used a knee support that was embarrassingly obvious at times [lesson learnt: white knee support + black hair = a stupid idea]. I knew it wasn't the best at the time, but I was loathe to cut up a perfectly good sock and widow it's partner.
This time, I learnt my lesson. Plus, a few socks had bitten the proverbial dust since then, so provided a brilliant foundation for my new doughnut/sock bun ring (because there's no way I'm paying £5 for one from Boots).
I repeated these actions with a black sock (to avoid being exposed) and rolled it onto and over the grey one.
And the predictable twist!
