Earlier this week, I decided to take it upon myself to fix my favorite pair of socks. Yes, my favorite pair. And my roommate (who has a similar sock problem) asked me how to fix them without having them get all weird and uneven.
So here is a step-by-step, pic-by-pic how-to of how to fix your socks. It's super simple and easy, though it can take awhile. Use this technique on anything you need to mend, whether it's a hole in your jeans or if you're losing the eternal battle between long fingernails and thin, cheap gloves. And please ignore my less than stellar mani.
Step 1: Put It On
Put on whatever you're mending, if possible. This makes it so much easier to see what you're doing, and you'll be able to get the proper shape and setting of your mend. It also gives you a pretty stable area to work on (though I did find my hip cramping from the odd way I had to sit!).
Step 2: Supplies
