Although I make socks for everyone in the family, there is something about my toes and I always seem to finish up with holes where my big toes should be. No-one else in the family suffers from this, just me.
So, I spend quite a bit of time darning – using this cute, oddly shaped darning “mushroom” that I bought in Pennsylvania.
I have decided that I am not making any more socks without reinforcing the toes, but meanwhile have been honing my rather poor darning skills
I had a day’s leave today, to help get Archie off to Thailand, but did manage to sneak in a new pair of socks with yarn from my stash. I added woolly nylon to the toes to help make them stronger – fingers (or is that toes?) crossed! What’s nice is that it is completely invisible and is not noticeable when wearing the socks, and so worth the tiny bit of effort.
