A stitch in time...

"Run the heels of stockings faithfully; and mend thin places as well as holes. 'A stitch in time saves nine.'" [The American Frugal Housewife, 1829]

When I got married, I was shocked to learn my husband threw away socks once they got holes in them. There's no need! Check out this handy tutorial on sock darning instead, and stocking darning, for your own leg-wear.
