What breaks in a moment may take years to mend.
[Swedish Proverb]

Sock mending is almost a forgotten skill, but hand-knit socks deserve mending. The socks in the photo above have heels that can be raveled and re-knit if necessary. They are for another class I’m facilitating at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. It is half a day (Sunday, 1:00-4:00 pm) so I have a small project planned that gives the knitter detailed experience making a replaceable or peasant heel. I have printed copies of the August sock (watermelon) from my CD book for each participant as well.
