The End of The Sock Drawer

I've been remiss in posting photos of the last of the socks in the drawer. Things got really crazy around here with work and the wedding. But, I did photograph the last five pair of socks in the drawer before balling all of them up and putting them back.

I remember finding these on sale for 89 cents. I like the bold color and design. There is one problem with them.

Both heels look like this. Honestly, I don't know how to darn which would give these socks another few years of life, nor do I have the inclination to do so. Therefore, they are now in the give-away box. I'm sad to see them go but toe holes I can fix; threadbare heels I cannot and I have so many socks I'm not losing much.

I have had this pair for a very, very long time. I don't remember where or when I got them, that's how long it's been. Nothing's wrong with them, either. I think I got my money's worth.

I've had this pair for a long time, too. I have had to fix the toe area once, but, otherwise, they have lasted well. I stepped on gum somewhere while wearing these and that was a bear to get out.

It seems to me that my white socks tend to be the most flimsy in weight. Yet, this pair has lasted a good 10 years. I think it's because I don't wear the white ones as much as the other ones. I got rid of a couple pair of white socks last year because I just didn't wear them. When they came up in the drawer, I usually put them back. That's a sign that they can move on to someone who would like them.

This is the last pair from the drawer. Carole gave me these for Mother's Day in 2010. You can't go wrong with Gold Toe brand socks.

I realized, as I was sorting back in February for taxes, that I have a bunch of good socks in the mending pile. I'll get to those and there will be another post on my socks.
