Learning How to Darn Socks
Darning a sock is one of those things I’ve been meaning to learn for a really long time. I even bought myself a darning egg from Dressew a few months ago, with the intention of finally doing it. But it wasn’t until last week that I finally gave myself the time to figure it out.
The darning egg I bought is made of wood and comes with a long handle. It is fitted inside the sock to provide a rounded surface to stitch against while darning. It’s an object that looks rather weird and puzzling on its own when you don’t know what the heck it is.
I used it to repair tiny holes in five pairs of my socks, and a couple massive holes in a single pair of Boris’ socks. That is six pairs of socks saved from the bin, and given an extension on life.
