My Creative Space

Knobs.
It's all about door knobs this week.
Why?
Well, I have to do something that I spent too many years not wanting to do.
I have to darn socks. But not any old sock, only the hand knitted ones cos they're special! And just in case you hadn't didn't know, the knob is used to darn the sock with - it holds the hole in place whilst you darn away!
What are you up too this week & have you checked out My Creative Space yet?

  3. My mum had a special darning knob when we were kids but this is an excellent use of your regular door knob.

  10. I feel the need to say "you learn something new every day" - who would have thought door knobs and socks made sewing heaven.
