My latest sample knit is off the needles, washed, blocked, and on its way to its new home. So now I can be a little selfish again. I've started knitting a second pair of Paraphernalia socks last week for my evening class knitting. You're probably wondering if I ever pay attention in class, aren't you? Anyway, I cast on for a second pair of these socks (they're for me this time) in a skein of Malabrigo Sock that I've had for a while. I really love this color but have heard some scary things about socks in Malabrigo. Like, you walk in them for two seconds and your toes pop out. Or something like that. Since I've started these socks I've been thinking about reinforcing the heel and toe. But how to do that is the problem. I've never done that before and am not really sure about the best way to go about doing something like that. So of course I ask the people I trust.
What would you do? Have you ever had this problem with Mal Sock? Do you normally reinforce heels/toes of loosely spun yarn?
