Not again!

Warning: more graphic knitting pictures ahead.

We already know I fixed the ball of my Lorna's Laces socks. Now the heels blew.

On both socks.


But wait, there's more!!!


These are my malabrigo socks; very soft but I've had nothing but problems with these guys. And they aren't even that old!!!! I'm not even going to bother fixing either pair.

It's a sad day here at Happy Acres......a sad day.

Rip back the good sections and reknit a pair of Franken socks. It could be fun. New socks out of all your old stuff.

I've become very cautious about using sock yarn without nylon lately. It's frustrating to spend so much time and effort to knit socks when they wear through too fast. I have some Malabrigo and Wollmeise sock yarn in my stash that I've been too chicken to use yet. Socks take a lot of abuse. My sympathy on your sock casualties.

Alas! Very soft isn't such a good thing in a sock yarn... Do you walk around in slippers, or directly on your carpets? Apparently walking on carpets isn't so good for socks.
