THERESA'S TIP FOR EASIER TOE GRAFTING

I find whenever I get ready to graft the toe of my sock, it helps to put a darning eagg in.  I have a couple of wooden darning eggs and when ready to graft, drop one down the leg and it ends up at the toe.  I can then stretch my stitches over the egg and see what direction my graft is taking.  This trick has saved my many rude words under my breath and much ripping.  It also has the advantage of being able to get the tension right the first time.
