Re: Do You, Or Someone Else, Darn Your Socks? Or, Do You Just Buy More?

My mum had one of those mushrooms. I haven't darned socks in years, probably not since the early 70's when we were so broke but then later clothes generally became so much more affordable. In fact I chucked a pair only yesterday, holes in both heels. I also remember before the days of duvets turning sheets that had worn thin, sides to middle, and then they were never quite wide enought for the bed, so annoying!

The ultimate and appropriately current sock recycling!
I know I posted this elsewhere recently but it makes me laugh so much despite having watched it several times
Needs sound!

I used to darn socks many years ago, in fact I was a dab hand with my mushroom!

These days holey socks are discarded.

My Gran used to take the two worn sheets & cut out the worn bits & sew the two good bits together to make another sheet. The worn bits were used as dusters or dish cloths.
