Darn or Damn

The sock knitter's existential dilemma.

Otherwise Perfectly Good Sock

Knit in May 2008.  Survived many spins in the washer. Found the leftover yarn right where it ought to have been.  After a two-day hunt, found the darning egg under some plastic resistance (!) bands stuffed in a basket on a shelf.

Are we sensing some ambivalence? Darn the darn thing or turn it into a sock puppet?  a chew toy?  a dust mitt? Compost it like dryer lint? Wring another blog  post out of it? What do you think?
