OK…I thought I was doing great on my socks. But now that I have worn them I know I have a little problem. When I first put them on…they are great. No ladders, no little holes. However as they are worn a little bit a ladder starts to show up where the decreases on the toe are. This has happened on both of the socks I have knitted so far. Also it is just in the toes. I can only find one sock out of the six that I have made that has a little hole in the heel.
My questions are:
- What am I doing wrong?
- How do I fix it while I am knitting my socks?
- What can I do about it now with the socks I would like to wear? How do I repair the gap? I thought about doing a duplicate stitches on top but I can’t seem to figure out how to do that? Or would you weave it closed from behind?
