Darning is fun. Hmm maybe not. I was handed a damaged sock where half of the cast on at the top of the ribbing of my husbands sock was totally unraveled. It seems that this is the spot that goes first on his socks.
He has size 11 feet and very narrow feet. So I knit his socks with a 9" circumference. But I guess getting that cast on over his heel is the problem. These socks were knit from the top up but the lesson learned here is that next time I will cast on (or cast off as the case may be) for the 10" circumference.
I picked up the open stitches with the tiniest needles I have and then cast off again with the right sized needle adding in some increases as I went. I just have the ends to sew in and I'm done. I expect the matching sock to be coming to my knitting repair shop soon.
