So last night Franklin picked a pair of socks up and said “I don’t know what I’m going to do about these.” Naturally I asked for details. It turned out that one of the socks had developed a significant hole in the toe.
A pretty awful picture, but the hole is clear enough! Well, I’ve never been able to help with any of his other holes, but these were top-down socks and this hole is right near the end of the knitting. So I ought to be able to just remove the toe and reknit it, right?
My niece was visiting today and while talking to her, I removed the toe. I hadn’t realized that this sock had gotten fairly felted. So removing the toe wasn’t that easy. Now I’m going to see whether I can do a decent job of picking up the stitches. Then I will take some random sock-yarn-with-nylon and see what I can come up with. I certainly should be able to get the sock back to comfortable. And that’s what really counts, right?
