Holier Than Thou? Darn It!

I feel like I'm in a depression both economic and mental. And what did our grandmas do during the depression? Yes, they made quilts out of old clothes, but they also darned socks. I haven't darned any socks since the 70s when we were more than dirt poor, but last night I got out my husband's grandmother's darning egg and about 10 pairs of socks I've been saving for the occasion, turned on the Ott light and...

...started darning.   I don't have to buy new socks now that it's getting cold and my feet need them. And my big toes will love me.
