Have you ever put on a good pair of socks only to discover that there is a hole in one? Well, when I went to put on my warm blue socks the other day, I was caught by surprise ~ here was a hole on the heel. No worries!
I thought I would share with you how to darn a sock ~ that means fix a hole in a sock. It's bit different that sewing up a hole in a shirt or pants. Here you go...
2 - Turn the sock wrong side out and insert the lightbulb so that the hole in the sock is slightly stretched over the lightbulb.
3 - With your needle threaded and knotted, begin making stitches that go across the hole, catching a small bit on each side of the hole. Once you have sewn it up, knot thread and clip.
4 - Viola! No more hole! The lightbulb helps one truly see the hole. This is a trick that mom passed down to me from her grandmother. Thanks Grandma Childress!
May your socks no longer have holes!
