I just noticed that the bottoms and heels of my favorite socks (worsted weight wool) are wearing very thin. I thought maybe duplicate stitch in those areas would help, but I would like to hear y'all's ideas.:??:??
here's a bump for you. i'm wondering about this too.
Hereis a knitty 101 on repairs...you have to scroll down a bit to get to socks... I haven't had a pair wear out on me yet...but I think that would be a great reason to buy some special new yarn and knit a pair just for you :happydance:
Here is another site for you http://www.hjsstudio.com/darn.html
The duplicate stitch would work!
Thank you all for those sites. They both say to use Duplicate stitch!!! I'm off to fix my socks. thanks again.
