DNR (Christmas Countdown Day 17)

There I sat darning my socks. Again.

I have breathed new life into these, my first pair of handknit socks, many times now. So many times, in fact, that I have run out of the original yarn and now use some other remnant of purple sock yarn.

I love these socks. I wear them three days a week, minimum. (hence the constant need for repair) I would hate to give up on them and throw them out. But, how long can I keep this up? When is enough enough? When do I sign the “do not ressusitate” order and let them die a natural death?

These are the tough questions. And the sad answer is that, while I could probably go on darning these till doomsday, this is going to have to be the last time.

Because I just finished another (better) pair of purple socks. And I am a sock knitter, now. There are so many more beautiful handknit socks in my future, why should I hang onto the past?
