Yep, it finally happened. My sock blew a hole BIG TIME!!! I knew it was getting thin and I had sewn a patch for it (yes I know not your typical darning, but a way I was taught by an old time knitter), but i never put it on. Guess I need to now.
This is the second sock.
Getting thin spots so will reinforce them as well. Some would just throw them out, but these were the first socks I made for me that fit well and lasted a long time. They've lasted for almost 4 years and I wear them A LOT!!! They are Lorna's Laces sport for those curious minds. I blogged abt them here.
I've been working on my snowman and I'm getting really close to having all the stitching done. Once I finish the stitching I'll take an updated shot before the backstitching. It's nice to see this finally winding down. I've been working on it for 3 years today!!!
