Sock Repair?
As I went to pull out a pair of handknit socks to wear today, I discovered a hole starting in the ball area of the foot. Is there a way to repair this? Mom usually just said "darn sock," and would toss it. I love this pair of socks as it is not only handknit by myself, but is also VERY comfy.

Thanks!

Darn you, DCM, now I have no excuse! Thanks for the link, I might well want to darn a sock that I've knitted ... knit ... a sock that I made.
