Darning cone

Finally finished the darning cone for my Consew 207. Been sanding on it all summer. There are times when it's nice to have a bit more support on the left of the needle and that's where the cone comes in. I made it a bit fatter and longer to fit my hands. We'll see how it works.

These are hard to find sometimes, so I figured I'd make my own out of some wood and a Consew 227 end cover I sourced online.

While I was making mine, all sorts of cones started popping up on Facebook and Instagram. People are even fabricating new cones (see below) and 3D printing them. 2018 may be the year of the darner.
