I had knit a pair of Jenny Socks out of Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Silk yarn. This yarn is beautiful. It is so soft, and has such lovely drape and luster.
It is not, however, a good selection for socks. The very things that make it lovely to work with, make for socks that will not stand up well to wear. And so, I ended up with a hole on the heel of one of the socks.
darning egg, it was time I used it.
Considering the delicate nature of this yarn, however, I think I'll keep them completely out of shoes and make them house or bed socks.
For any future repairs, I will consult one of these videos first so that my repair truly does end up invisible.
