How to mend a sock

You may already have all you need at home. If not, you don't need much of anything so if you have a friend or family member who sews, let them know what you need and I'm sure they will give it too you.

1 pair of scissors

1 light bulb, the old kind, it is great way to use the old light bulbs you have in the garage when you switched to the new energy efficient kind.

thread. I use mettler purple label (100% cotton) but you can use whatever you have. A good rule of thumb is use the same kind of  thread that your sock is made out of. Poly thread for poly socks, silk thread for silk socks etc...

yarn I like to use the baby sport weight. Very easy to thread in the needle and it's soft.

2 needles- a regular sewing needle and a yarn darner, which is just a needle with a big eye

a rubber band, mine held together my asparagus. I was saving it to make a rubber band ball but I  will after I'm done mending.

and last but not least some holey socks!
