Everybody gets holey socks. But you don't have to throw them away; try darning instead. Here are quick sock-darning directions. First, gather some cotton thread, lightweight yarn, a lightbulb, a special darning needle, scissors, and a rubber band, plus your holey sock. To begin, put the sock over the bulb so that you can see the hole, and hold it in place with the rubber band. Next, thread the needle and start sewing. You'll sew long stitches back and forth across the hole, all in one direction, filling the hole with thread. Now comes the fun part. Thread the yarn onto a yarn needle and weave it in and out, up and down, through the threads, across the hole in the opposite direction from the threads. This creates a sturdy patch in your sock.
