This year, I promised myself to learn new things-knitting and non-knitting related. My post shows one of the things I’ve learned so far.
I’ve been living with this secret that no one’s known about until now. I love knitting. Anyone who knows me will attest to that. But when I finish knitting a project, I’m completely done with it. And sometimes I wish to be finished before the project is over. With that said, I have a few projects that have been haunting me, and I’ve ignored for a long time. And I finally had the courage to do something about it. Here’s my secret:
I’ve been wearing socks with holes in them. I know-the horror. I took the holes in my socks as a sign of love, but maybe it was laziness. What was I to do? Through them out? So I bought a darning egg and attempted to fix my socks, but the darning egg was too small. I looked around and ended up using a Christmas ornament. I found this blog and was it was the most effective method for me to repair my socks. So one pair went from this:
Voila! A repaired sock. I know it doesn’t look great, but if you read the blog in the link, the woven area will even out as I wear it. So here’s my after shot of all my holey socks (click for bigger).
I feel much better getting that off my chest.
