These socks have been sitting in my mending drawer for many years. I know I’m never going to mend them. They are now in the garbage can. They never made it back inside the house after the photoshoot.

Majority of these are Koigu socks. I love Koigu but they don’t make long wearing socks, at least, not for me. The few pairs of hand spun socks in there were painful to toss as well, but they gave me lots of pleasure from spinning, knitting to wearing.

What do they all have in common, aside from the holes? They are all 100% merino. ‘Nuff said.
