new as old

some mending has been going on around here

second generation of patches on my man’s woodworking jeans

My warmest socks needed some mending too

I improvised on the basis of  this tutorial for darning socks.

and quite happy with the results!

    Oh, much more advanced and nice looking sock mendings than mine :) I noticed your nice ‘stoppsvamp’. I bought mine a couple of years ago and I am so happy for it!

      it’s the first time ever i mended socks by the rule, so to say, my grandma used to just “free-knit” some sort of patch on a sock and that’s the only way I new.
      I bought my stoppsvamp a couple of years ago too, and I finally have used it :) It’s a great device :)

    Аля, джинсы очень клевые получились! Особенно сеточкой штопка красивая! :) Я недавно НН тоже на рабочие джинсы понаставила заплаток, надо будет тебе показать, обменяться результатами (но у меня не так изящно всё и пока пришивала, все пальцы исколола :)))))

      Спасибо :) Джинсы Бу становятся всё толще и пушистей от заплаток:)
      Ты показывай тогда свои тоже! :)
      Пальцы – да, понимаю тебя, я всё думаю надо мне сшить напальчники (или как это называется) из кожи чтоли, потому что наперстки какие-то неудобные совсем.

    I have my grandmother’s “darning egg” which works quite well, but I like the coiled wire place-holder on yours…

      It’s the first time I used such construction with wire place holder and it’s actually quite convinient. My grandmas used an ordinary old light-bulb for these purposes.
