Why I’m a Spoiled Brat—#9

Honestly, I really thought to post something of substance, but I feel compelled to explain why I haven’t written for a week. I spent last weekend in the mountains with three of my best girlfriends. One of these girlfriends owns an adorable historic Victorian house in the ski town of Breckenridge, Colorado. We arrived Thursday night and didn’t return until Monday. During that time, we knitted, watched movies, and treated ourselves to delicious meals. I also spent a fair amount of time practicing my spinning (the fiber kind, not the exercise kind).

Remember that basket of darning and finishing I gathered many weeks ago? I took it with me and darned seven of the nine pairs of socks. I decided that I’d rather knit new socks than darn the remaining two so I plan to see if I can agitate them into felt that can be used for something else. I also finished the sweater, but that deserves a post of its own.

For now, my mending basket is empty. I wonder how long it will stay that way…

  1. I hate mending. I’d rather make something new any day! One idea I’d like to try one of these days, though? Needle-felting a “patch” right onto a sock hole. No darning required. Sounds intriguing, anyway…

  2. Could you share your darning techniques? I am in desperate need of darning some socks, but I find all the instructions overwhelming. Could you refer us to a book? Or share your general knowlege? You’re the best!
