Mending socks

Yes, I mend holes in my socks. I think it’s a perfect waste to throw away a sock with a small hole it it just because my big toe decided to go rogue.

I don’t darn the sock, since even I have my limits (darning is for larger holes), but if one of my cute patterned socks springs a leak, I’m going to sew it up. I fixed two socks today, just took a needle and thread and used a circular stitch to repair the holes.

If the hem falls down on a pair of my pants or a seam gets a tear, I fix those, too. I hate wasting clothes that are perfectly usable otherwise!
