I got a pair of socks fixed up. I love these hand knit socks but after a while they wear out. I make holes on the ball of my foot and then the heal. The wool just wears so thin. I have knitted new toes on this pair a few years ago. Well this time the heal also was going. So I got some new yarn and used the top of the sock only. I made the heal and all of the foot from new yarn.
We have been crazy cold this week. Knitting wool socks just feels like the thing to do.
Here is the next pair that needs fixing, both socks need fixing. I have saved the top part of the sock and bought a new matching yarn. The yarn has 25% nylon which does last a little longer then pure wool.
