I finally got around to fixing my Varanasi sock last night. I just duplicate stitched over the thin spot.
Not a bad bit of repair, if I do say so myself. But, when I got ready to wear them to work this morning, I noticed that the other sock had a thin spot, too. I decided I'd better fix it, too, before I wore the socks again.
That one was just a bit more tricky, but it looks OK. Most importantly, I'll get a few more wears out of this pair of socks. I was a bit disappointed that these wore out so quickly. This was Lorna's Laces. It's supposed to be one of the higher quality sock yarns. I would have thought it would have lasted longer.
Look at what I bought at Wal-mart:
They're cat toys. I thought Squeaky might like to play with them. Squeaky thought differently.
