    Camera battery dead STOP Hole in another handknit sock STOP Too severe for darning STOP Knitter and sock-wearer distraught STOP

    Clearly, one can never have enough handknit socks. Stay tuned for the shocking photographic evidence of the limits of darning. You, too, will be amazed and astounded. Me? I feel the urge to knit some striped wool socks. . .

    Ouch! I feel your pain. I found a hole in the heel of the first sock I ever knit for myself and it about broke my heart!

    Oh, I'm so sorry...but when you have 40 pair holes happen less often;-)

    Gee, without photographic evidence, I do find it very hard to believe... I'm sorry about the hole--good luck!

    How horrible! I hope you are able to console yourself. Perhaps some new sock yarn would do the trick? ;)
