Tragedy

A moment of silence please for the first casualty of my sock knitting. I knew this day would come but it doesn't make it any easier.



I got a lot of good use out of these, my first pair of hand knit socks. I will miss then always.

That hurts to see the hole in your beautiful socks. Is there no way that they can be mended? Betty Lou

I haven't had that happen yet, but I know it's coming.

Oh dang. Bummer. Total bummer. Sorry friend. Maybe we can practice the art of darning socks now?

Is darning a long lost art?

I agree with Karen. What a bummer.

A moment of silence...
now get knitting!

Tine said...

aaawwww, a sad day indeed! But then, better to wear them out than to leave them in a drawer never to be used!

Jodie said...

I vote for darning them, I did that to my favorite handknit socks and it gave them new life!
I learned how on youtube. I probably even blogged about it.

Ouch - that hurts.
My first pair of socks were knit in 2003 with Regia sock yarn and are still going strong after all these years of ongoing use!
(I've lost 3 pair of non-nylon-reinforced socks though :-(

good thing you're making another pair during the Olympics, right? I decided on a sweater.

aw, so sad. I know my days are numbered too - consider it a sign of being well loved!
