Domestic Art: Darning!

By the way, for those of you who do not know this, darning is a repair process, it involves weaving new threads into the existing sock, but it is definitely not making the sock from nothing. I fix holes, in short, nothing more. But in Vermont we tend to wear expensive woolen socks in winter, so – welp, someone has to do it or we would be a holey population! Hah!

This is a lost art, the art of darning…I love to darn socks, anyone’s!
