Darning - nearly a lost art, my mother and grandmothers used to darn everything, -socks, shirt elbows, jumpers, sheets and towels

Flame sock darn. Not entirely happy. Very happy that it's so conspicuous, but the downside is you can see my errors. I didn't catch some of my warps; working from the other side was hard to see them- you are supposed to darn from the back of the item. And my rows were a little far apart, or my darning wool was on the thin side, depending on how you look at it. Either way, the result is the same: a little thin, though this has strengthened a very thin, worn sock considerably.
