The black one was my grandmother's and the other I recieved in a swap and no one seems to know what they are.  One answer was they're sock darners.  If anyone knows, please tell me what they are and what they're used for.

Sock darners, but I might use them as Hubby Beaters.

I'm wishing I had them now.  Wink

2/18/12 - I no longer have the directions for wrapped pens, I lost them several years ago. To obtain them for yourself, do like I did, contact DMC threads directly and ask for them.

I've also seen variations that don't have a handle.  My grandma use to call them "sock eggs".  When I darn my socks I usually use a lightbulb.  You just stick it in the sock and it stretches out the area that you need to darn so you can see everything.

Thanks everyone!  Smiley  I guess I can use then when knitting socks to reinforce the heels/toes.
