In February one of the Fiberuary themes was “mending”.
For several years, I have mended both hand knit and commercial socks with a woven-style darn (as opposed to, for example, duplicate stitch). This year, I decided to try a darning loom tool, which helps both with setting up the “warp” of the patch, but also with throwing the “weft” of the patch (since the hook orientation will open up 2 different “sheds”).
In addition to doing some darning, I made some sewing repairs to garments. To my eye, the sewing repairs look sloppy, but they aren’t noticeable when I’m wearing them, and have gone through the washing machine without falling apart, so I consider that a win!
