How to darn a sock

When you make your own clothes, including socks, it’s much easier to mend something rather than make a new one. When you own cheap H&M socks like I do, I’m not so sure. But I’ll find out, because inevitably this year my socks will wear out and I’ll need some new ones. Or I’ll have to fix the ones I have. Sure I could call “wear it out” and buy some more, but I like the idea of learning how to darn a sock. I doubt my darning will be this lovely, but it’s nice to keep in mind.


In 2012, I'm not going to buy anything except what I've used up or worn out. For all else, I'll make do with what I already own or I'll do without. I've come up with some guidelines. Update: for 2013 I'm going to continue along, but not as strictly.


I'm Meg Hourihan. I live in New York City but was raised in Massachusetts. I blame my Yankee-ness for this crazy idea. Read more about me and this project.
