Is it gay as a man to order sewing kits online so I can repair my socks DIY style? All the darning tutorials I see online are made by women.

    As long as you aren't sewing up gay stuff you're good anon. I mostly use a leather stitching awl and sew stuff with it, but someday would like to get the Juki sewing machine in my garage fully operational and stitch up wrench rolls, custom bags, seat covers, and other upholstery out of heavy canvas, etc.

    Can someone tell me if this tutorial is legit for fixing socks with holes? The way this video sews it it makes it look like the sock would get smaller.

      It's OK for small holes in socks with spandex in them as opposed to socks that get all their stretch from being knitted...the first way she does it is less preferable because those seams will irriate your feet and create new stress points as the fabric tries to stretch against the scar- like seam

      But the real way to darn then is like picrel...it takes more time but leaves no seams or ridges and can be done pretty quickly once you get some practice...it also doesn't distort the original shape or add new stress points and actually makes the garment stronger.

        Also note that in pic 3 you can see that the darning needle has a curved tip to make picking up and interweaving stitches in the undamaged areas easier when the fabric is fitted over a convex shape like a darning egg.

        When I was young, (back in the late 60's and early 70's) my parents were struggling to make ends meet and I had given to me, some of my uncles socks that had been darned in this way. (admittedly, the quality of socks then, is better than they are now).

        I guess we live in a 'disposable society' but I still repair holes in pockets, rips and tears, etc. There is nothing that a bit of black cotton and a needle can't fix.

        Unless you have really nice, quality wool socks or something, it's really not.

          Cooking is a colosal waste of time since you can just buy a burger and use the spare time to make money
          Training a sport is a colosal waste of time since there is a Black person that can do it better and you can just make money instead
          Fricking your wife is a colosal waste of time since the mailman can do it while you go and make money etc

    Yes, but only because it's a colossal waste of time.

    Don't get me wrong, this is PrepHole and you should know *how* to do this, but socks are generally in the range of $0.50-$0.80 each. I'm the kind of guy who salvages parts and metal from anything I'm throwing out or taking to the scrap yard. I'm familiar with wasting a lot of time in order to save a little money, but even I wouldn't bother fixing my socks unless I had to.

    Is it gay? No, not at all.
    Would it be gay if you did it? Yes, very much so, because you are a giant homosexual.

      No but it is gay to order online instead of going to a store like a real human person. It's also gay to look at youtube tutorials instead of picking up a book or using your brain. And

    Gotta learn this skill, myself and for the same reason. You can't really buy quality socks at a decent price anymore. They're chinkshit or from some other 3rd world hellhole. They wear so fast, it's like they're made of paper.

    It's not gay, just cheap. Buy some new fricking socks, spend a little bit more on better quality and hole wont be a problem.
    I learned how to sew in high school. Stitching up an otherwise good pair of jeans or a jacket is one thing. Socks or underwear though? Cmon dude.

    please do not to this, premade kits are absolute subhuman fractions of a penny garbage, spend $10-20 getting actual, proper, non factory reject supplies.

    Get
    >pack of variety needles
    >small white and black spools of gutermann or other non shit, non coats and clark thread
    >a small dime bag of buttons, including any spare buttons that come with any premade garments you buy
    >a small pair of properly made scissors (the tiny red handled ones that come in "kits" suck fat wiener) or smaller/lighter still would be a razor

    quite literally all you need
