As you suggested, I looked here, and here and a few other places and figured out that darning is a really easy and great tool. I didn't have a mushroom or egg but I learned a light bulb works just fine.
Because you all saved my socks I want pay it back with some free Knitterella product. Maybe a set of my Knitted Sock note cards? Or Knitterella Gift Tags? Whatever you want! Leave me a comment and I will draw a name at random and send you your product pick of choice. I'll leave this contest open for a couple days and come back with a winner… or two!
Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my FOOT!
