Step 1: Turn the sock inside out Turn your sock inside out and place the darning egg inside of the sock to emphasize the hole. Step 2: Thread the needle Thread the darning needle with yarn or thick thread. Tip If the hole is in the sole of the sock, use a different color yarn or thread from that of the sock to help you see your work. Step 3: Begin weaving Start about an inch to the side of the torn area, and weave over the hole to an inch on the other side. Tip Keep a little slack in the yarn or thread to allow for shrinkage when washed. Step 4: Weave in the other direction Turn the sock the other way and weave stitches perpendicular to those you've just created. Tip Don't make any knots; this would make it uncomfortable for the sock wearer. Step 5: Continue weaving Continue weaving over the hole until you've covered it. Step 6: Cut the yarn Cut the extra yarn, turn your sock right-side out, and congratulate yourself for saving another sock's life. Did You Know? Did you know? The first sock knitting machine -- which automatically closed a sock's heel and toe -- was developed in 1869 by John Nelson and William Worth Burson.
