The January/February issue of Piecework (a needlework magazine focusing on historical techniques) has interesting article on darners. While they focus on the original use of darners and the technique for darning socks, they also mention highly collectable whimsy darners with a lovely picture of a Steuben blue Aurene darner. I still darn special hand-knit socks, but of course not with my blue or gold Aurene darners which I display with other antique needlework tools. I have some nice ordinary wood ones for that purpose.
