I knew that someday a hole would spring up in a hand-knit sock,
so I read up on how to repair it. Duplicate stitch seems to be the way to go.
However, this tutorial downright scared me and I ended up repairing the hole my own way. First I secured the stitches around the hole by doing some sort of stitch. Then I joined the sock material and wove the yarn back and forth and up and down to create a patch. Voila! Not pretty and neat--but it seems to have worked.
When I wore the sock today, I couldn't even feel the patch job.
And what's this?
Will more socks be cast on soon?
More socks = less wear and tear on already made socks = fewer holey socks.
