KPPM socks are now hole-y

A few months back I posted how I repaired the toe on a pair of socks. I picked the pair out of the drawer to wear yesterday to wear and discovered a hole in the 1X1 ribbed leg. These were knit using Koigu KPPM. I don't remember the needle size.

Bummer. I think it is time to toss these socks. They were my second pair of toe-up socks and I used the basic pattern. I've knit a few more pairs and have learned some different techniques.

Thanks, socks for making my feet feel good.

Aww bummer about the hole. Do you have a bit of it left? Just sew it up. :)

I would sew it up. Use a regular sewing thread in a similar color. I've done it many times to Koigu socks.

Mend the hole, launder the socks, fill the foot part the cedar shavings. Tie knot near the ankle so the shavings stay put, and put it in your sock drawer to keep things smelling fresh!

Use a color yarn that goes with it and sew it. Use the same color yarn every time you need to patch it and see what kind of pattern you get. :)
