I know that I don’t treat my socks well, they have a hard life and then go to pieces or, like Cobbler Bob*, end up with a hole in their sole. The Snail tried out one of the new-fangled** Speedweve devices a while ago (see here for the gory details) and it worked very well.
With another inevitable hole or two appearing in one of my socks, it was time to see if the idea that “any fool can use it” was true.
Enter one fool…
So, yes, a Speedweve IS so easy, a fool can use it.
Did I just darn my first sock ever? Yes, I did!
Am I ridiculously pleased with myself for having done it? Yes. Yes, I am.

** Actually old-fangled.
