Reinforcing socks with thread?
Hey everyone. I'll admit that I've recently developed a sock addiction and I'm trying to learn as much as I can about knitting socks. Apparently, the use of reinforcing the toes and heels of socks is the source of some debate. Some people say that it helps reduce the wear of the sock, while some people say it makes them uncomfortable or actually makes the sock wear more quickly. I've never used reinforcing nylon thread and could just try it myself, but I don't want to if the majority of people don't think reinforcing the sock has many benefits. So, any thoughts on the issue? :D

"An excellent woman, who can find? She is far more precious than jewels . . . She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands." - Proverbs 31:10;13
