Thrums



I have a basket that I put all of my darning/fixing/needs a button  or just needs finishing stuff in, it was getting a little bit out of control, mostly with little jobs that only require five minutes.  I put a new zip into a pair of my favourite jeans that had been waiting for about six months - this may be my greatest achievement to date!  I found a bag with a very nearly finished pair of thrummed mittens for Louis.  One was complete and the second just needed the decreases at the end and a thumb, I've got no idea why I gave up on them, something better must have come along.


 Somebody will be pleased.


Alpaca socks from a very well known yarn label, not cheap, and they had a hole after a couple of wears.   I love a bit of darning but not on nearly new socks.  I've learned my lesson.


I didn't have anything for the job in a remotely similar colour so I went for the good old Woolworth Mending Yarn, sixpence well spent.
