Darn it!

January word prompt - recollections

Did any of you learn how to darn your socks when you were young? This is the same darning "egg" my mother used and I used when she taught me. I still darn socks to this day.
Super shot and title. I've never darned (is that a word?) in my life.

Mum taught me to knit and sew...and I’m so pleased she did. Darning is very therapeutic...once you get the hang of it. Like all skills...the more you do, the more effective you become and the easier it is. Am able to use them on regular basis as a member of our local Repair Café.

You evoked memories. My grandmother had such the darning "egg" and she taught me too.

My mum had a darning mushroom - same principal - I haven't seen one of those for over 60 years !

I’ve never seen a darning “egg”. So interesting! Nice memories too.
