We ALL have such projects, tiny and larger ones, that we put off till...
Well, when it rains or when it is a cold winter day?
Nonsense - we MUST just attack them - any time.
This project was laying there since winter...
Yes, I'm honest!
Another hole in one of my favorite house socks for winter!
BUT, I did purchase this antique sock darner from one of our Church ladies that went to heaven... A couple of years ago that is.
Beautiful and practical, that is IF you use it.
Smart ladies that used to work with such an egg shaped sock darner a lot.
Holding on to its sterling silver handle.
Well, I'm sort of old fashioned I guess...
Having such a French antique silver needle case with roses (got another one like this for my baby sister), I was ready to start.
Oh, I still kept some yarn from hand knitted socks for Pieter, done by Pieter's Mom!
Yes, we owe a lot to our Moms as I did watch my Mom many times as a little girl when she was darning socks.
See, a nice hole in my heel!
This is not about dragging my feet... It lay there since winter and now I had to DO it.
That's how Mom showed me, weaving from one end to the other...
Than weaving through from the other end...
Oh, I know mine doesn't look as neat as Mom's used to; she was a MASTER darner!
BUT the hole is filled in!
Once more I can enjoy my favorite BLOOMIES from Bloomingdales.
Grabbed them up once in a sale and I've loved them!
Haha, our kittens loved to attack those pompons!
So, I'm ready for the cold weather for wearing my house socks!
Do you darn?...
