"Prolong the life of your hand-knit socks!"
Knitters must always be prepared for repairs, especially in those hand-knit pieces we wear again and again! These wooden darning eggs—one small and one large—are just the tool to help you prolong the life of your favorite, hand-knit socks. When inserted into the toe or heel of your sock, the darning egg will hold it in the proper shape, giving you a great foundation for your mending.
For great tips on darning socks (and other tips), pick up Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Quick Reference. For fully comprehensive mending instructions, try The Principles of Knitting by June Hemmons Hiatt.
