I went looking for a sock where the heel had worn through, which is what I’ve typically darned in the past, but all I could find was this toenail-injured sock. The sock is super-wash but I hope the fact that this black yarn will felt will stabilize the hole.

I think I have a solution for you! Your darn looks like it would fit darn well in the Mend hole in pants or skirt BB! I'm going to just turn your post into a non-BB post, and you can post it over in the other thread, and I'll certify it over there!

You are right, Edward, this is NOT darning. But no problem, there is a different BB for repairing a hole! When you found that BB, please do submit your post there with the button in the middle, so we know you want it to be approved as a BB ...

Hey, skip team! My daughter's leggings have been ripped. A little blue thread and a long needle helped me to weave the hole closed. She's happy! And now I'm excited to be able to repair homemade or expensive woolen socks!!

This is a pair of my handspun handknit socks. I wore the soles and there was a small hole about fingernail size in one, and a thumb sized hole in the other. Plus they were thinning across the pad of the foot.
I have done a woven darn before and wanted to try a knitted darn. So I finally did! It's really easy, if you can knit a sock then you can totally do a knitted darn. I didn't think the yarn would unravel much more but I did use the tail to weave around the hole and weave it in, just to be sure.
After that I put a small jar in the sock and wove yarn up and down between the stitches across the thinning section for each sock. It's practically invisible.

Note: Nicely done! Since you darned two, and darned them so nicely, I think you could post pictures of one of the socks for the nicer darning BB: https://permies.com/wiki/152468/pep-textiles/Mend-darn-hole-sock-PEP

I wore a hole in the knee of my favorite jeans. Used cotton embroidery floss, all 6 strands, as it was coincidentally the best match in thickness for the denim.
I used my own knee as a darning egg, which worked perfectly well, except it wasn’t exactly fun being bent so far for so long.

I noticed a hole in the first blanket I'd ever knit while waiting for my bread to rise. I figured it'd be a good candidate for this BB.
I realize in hindsight I made it a bit more difficult on myself because the place the hole is in has two different colors, and moss stitches, making it hard to repair invisibly. I think it came out okay despite that.

The hole in question


My yarn and needle. I figured a blue that was close enough to the original yarn I'd used would prevent it from clashing too much with the white.


In Progress


Done!


And a picture from about 3 feet away. The fix is very hard to see- I lost it like three times trying to get this picture

Note: I hereby certify that this badge bit is complete! Good job camouflaging your mending, and mending the hole before it got huge!

 
I don't get it. A whale wearing overalls? How does that even work? It's like a tiny ad wearing overalls.
