With the colder weather coming, I decided to go through my sock drawers, and see if anything needs to be thrown out. I found eight pairs that need some degree of darning. No big holes, nothing that's unsalvageable. Here's the kicker: I've never darned socks before. I usually just throw them out and knit a new pair when there's wholes in them. Since my dear Applelaine yarn is hard to find now, I want to hold on to some of those socks. I'll search Youtube for darning techniques videos.... Any suggestions are welcome.
Other projects update: my purple blanket is 90% done, and I've completed eight Christmas gifts out of an expected eighteen.

I love that you want to darn your socks! I've been darning my socks since I was in grade school. My Grandma showed me how. I also YouTubed "darning socks" & found many tutorials that were helpful. I am your newest follower. Show some blog love?
