reinforcing heels and toes in socks
I'm off on a sock knitting jag, and wonder what you all use to reinforce the toes and heels? I bought some wool/nylon for this purpose.... comes on a card, and one tries to match the color with the sock wool, but I wondered if you all use anything else? In the past I've always used wool that I've spun, for my socks, so really needed to reinforce heel and toe, but now am using some purchased sock yarn that actually has some synthetic fiber in it....so, do you use this yarn alone or reinforce? If you reinforce, what do you use?
