Sock repair???
I just noticed that the bottoms and heels of my favorite socks (worsted weight wool) are wearing very thin. I thought maybe duplicate stitch in those areas would help, but I would like to hear y'all's ideas.

Here is a knitty 101 on repairs...you have to scroll down a bit to get to socks... I haven't had a pair wear out on me yet...but I think that would be a great reason to buy some special new yarn and knit a pair just for you

The duplicate stitch would work!
