old socks

I have a question: What do you do with old hand knit socks?

I’m talking about the socks so well loved that you have darned the darned patches:

worn through socks

or socks that maybe got washed one too many times, and now they’re felted so far down you can’t see the patterns anymore.

What about that unfortunate single sock, whose mate has been missing for years?

lost socks

What do you do with them? Throw them away? Turn them into rags or hand puppets? Keep darning them until there’s more darn than knit fabric left? What do you do? Inquiring minds want to know!

I have a plan for mine:

sock scraps

Because apparently I LIKE cutting up my knitting…
